The Portland Trail Blazers won again on Saturday (Jan. 25), with LaMarcus Aldridge looking like an All-Star against Kevin Love and the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Blazers won the game 115-104, moving to 33-11 on the season in the process. Aldridge led the team with 21 points in just 34 minutes of action, out-playing the starting power forward for the Western Conference at the 2014 NBA All-Star Game (Love).

Love finished with just 15 points on 4-of-12 shooting. He just couldn't get things going on the offensive end against Aldridge and the Wolves had to turn to other options to try to score points. They just didn't have enough weapons to keep up with the Blazers, though, and ended up falling to 21-22 overall with the loss.

For the Blazers, six players scored in double-figures, with 18 points coming from Wesley Matthews and 16 points coming from Mo Williams off the bench. The team shot 48.4 percent on the night and had to find ways to put up points without the three-pointer being their main weapon. The team only had four made three-pointers on the night, but managed to grab 13 offensive rebounds to aid with second-chance points.

With the win, the Blazers maintained the third best record in the Western Conference, half a game back from the San Antonio Spurs and 1 1/2 games back from the Oklahoma City Thunder. The team will next take the court on Sunday (Jan. 26) in a tough road game against the Golden State Warriors. It's a game where impressive fantasy basketball stats could be coming from many players.
