NBA Roundup: Blazers Beat Celtics 109-96 for 5th Straight Win

BOSTON -- LaMarcus Aldridge scored 27 points and added 12 rebounds to lead the Portland Trail Blazers to a 109-96 victory over the Celtics on Friday night, their first victory in Boston since 2004.

Mo Williams scored 18 with eight assists for Portland, which earned its fifth consecutive victory.

Jared Sullinger, who missed the last game with a bruised knee, had 26 points and eight rebounds off the bench for Boston, which has lost two in a row.

It was Aldridge's fourth straight game with a double-double. Nicolas Batum added 18 points and Damian Lillard had 17 for the Trail Blazers. Robin Lopez had 10 rebounds.

BULLS 96, RAPTORS 80: In Toronto, Luol Deng had 19 points, Joakim Noah scored 18 and the Chicago Bulls overcame the absence of Derrick Rose to beat the Toronto Raptors for their first road win of the season.

Deng and Noah also had nine rebounds apiece as Chicago earned its third consecutive win. Kirk Hinrich started in place of Rose and scored 12 points, helping the Bulls improve to 1-3 on the road.

Rose, the 2011 NBA MVP, was sidelined by the right hamstring injury that knocked him out in the fourth quarter of Monday's home win over Cleveland. He will be re-evaluated before the Bulls host undefeated Indiana on Saturday.

PACERS 104, BUCKS 77: In Indianapolis, Roy Hibbert scored 24 points and had eight blocks, both season-highs, leading unbeaten Indiana past Milwaukee.

The Pacers became the first team since the 2002-03 Dallas Mavericks to open a season at 9-0. Indiana has already beaten all four of its Central Division foes and will attempt to stay perfect Saturday night at Chicago.

Hibbert had plenty of help. Paul George scored 10 of his 22 points in the third quarter and Lance Stephenson finished with 11 points.

The short-handed Bucks (2-6) spent most of the game playing catch-up. With four injured players sitting out, O.J. Mayo led the Bucks with 20 points. Khris Middleton and Gary Neal each had 11 -- nowhere near enough to avoid a fourth straight loss.

Indiana took control with two big third-quarter spurts to build a 68-53 lead.

BOBCATS 86, CAVALIERS 80: In Cleveland, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored 16 points and the Charlotte Bobcats used a strong fourth quarter to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Bobcats outscored the Cavaliers 29-22 in the final period to win for only the second time in 16 games at Quicken Loans Arena.

Kidd-Gilchrist had eight points in the fourth, including a three-point play that gave Charlotte an 81-70 lead with 6:08 remaining. Ramon Sessions and Kemba Walker hit 3-pointers and Cody Zeller added a three-point play to spark the Bobcats' run. Charlotte had five players score in double figures.

Kyrie Irving, wearing a mask to protect a nasal fracture, had 18 points and 10 assists for Cleveland, which lost for the first time in four games at home.
