PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 20 (UPI) -- Patty Mills scored 29 points, including 13 in the fourth quarter of San Antonio's 111-109 win on the road over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Mills, who came off the bench to score 25 against the Clippers Tuesday, to lead the veteran Spurs in shots taken and pace them to their sixth win on a nine-game road trip that has turned into more of a pleasure cruise.

Mills knocked down 13-of-26 shots from the field despite missing 4-of-5 from 3-point range. Marco Belinelli added 20 points and Danny Green and Manu Ginobili both added 16.

Belinelli sank the go-ahead 3-point shot with 1:34 to play and added a pair of free throws with 2.2 ticks remaining to close out the victory.

Damian Lillard led Portland with 31 points and Mo Williams added 19. Portland lost its third consecutive game. Wesley Matthews scored 18, including a nifty steal-and-dunk play with 1:51 remaining in the game that tied the score 101-101.
