PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 26 (UPI) -- LaMarcus Aldridge put Portland ahead with 23 seconds left in overtime Friday and the Trail Blazers held on to edge Denver 107-106.

Aldridge hit two free throws for the final points of the game and the Nuggets wound up going to Danilo Gallinari for a 3-point attempt to win it.

Gallinari, who came to Denver this week in the trade that sent Carmelo Anthony to New York, missed the long-range attempt and the ball went out of bounds off the Trail Blazers with 1.7 seconds to play.

Denver's Arron Affalo got off a desperation 3-pointer from the corner that failed to go.

Portland made it into overtime thanks to Brandon Roy's 3-point shot with 6 seconds to play in the fourth period.

Aldridge scored 25 points for Portland and both Roy and Rudy Fernandez had 17.

Gallinari made 15-of-17 free-throw attempts and led Denver with 30 points. Wilson Chandler had 20 and Affalo added 19.
