PORTLAND, Ore., Dec. 21 (UPI) -- LaMarcus Aldridge pumped in 29 points and grabbed 19 rebounds Monday, propelling the Portland Trail Blazers to a 106-80 win over Milwaukee.

Wesley Matthews added 22 points, including three 3-pointers and Rudy Fernandez came off the bench to add 17 points and distribute seven assists for the short-handed Trail Blazers, who won their third straight.

Brandon Roy, Marcus Camby and Joel Przybilla all missed the game with various injuries, but it didn't slow down Portland, which shot 50 percent from the floor and racked up eight treys in the win.

The Bucks were dealing with injuries as well. The team announced that leading scorer Brandon Jennings would miss up to six weeks after undergoing surgery on his left foot.

John Salmons led Milwaukee with 23 points and Keyon Dooling added 12 in the loss.
