PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 30 (UPI) -- LaMarcus Aldridge scored 29 points Tuesday, including a game-winning jumper that carried the Portland Trail Blazers past visiting Dallas 106-104.

The fadeaway shot as the buzzer sounded was the first 3-pointer of the season for Aldridge and nailed down the Blazers' third win in four games.

Aldridge also grabbed 13 rebounds. J.J. Hickson contributed a double-double as well with 26 points and 15 rebounds.

Dirk Nowitzki led the Mavericks with 26 points and Darren Collison added 17 plus nine assists. Dallas had won six of its previous eight games.

Dallas led 59-44 but the Blazers outscored the Mavericks 32-21 in the third quarter and 32-24 in the fourth to get back into the game.

Nowitzki sank a 3-pointer with 11 seconds left in the game to give Dallas a 104-101 lead. Aldridge came back with 4 seconds to play to tie the score with a 23-foot jumper and then hit the game-winner after a Dallas turnover gave the Blazers another possession.
