PORTLAND, Ore., March 28 (UPI) -- Brook Lopez and Reggie Evans combined to give Brooklyn a rocket-like start Wednesday and the Nets went on to rout Portland 111-93.

Brooklyn led by 20 after the opening period and was not threatened while remaining within 2 1/2 games of New York for the lead in the Atlantic Division.

Lopez scored 28 points and Evans came through with 22 points and a career-best 26 rebounds. Brooklyn outrebounded Portland by 14.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 24 points for the Trail Blazers, who fell for the second straight game and are now 3 ½ games behind the Los Angeles Lakers for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Brooklyn is 4-1 on an eight-game road trip that lasts through April 3.
