Aldridge had 28 points and Lillard contributed four rebounds and seven assists to go with his 24 points. Lillard made four of Portland's 10 successful 3-point shots.

Joakim Noah led the Bulls with 18 points.

Portland put together a 22-6 run in the second period to break the game open and outscored the Bulls in the middle two periods 60-32.

The Trail Blazers defeated the Bulls in both their meetings this year.
