PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - LaMarcus Aldridge had a career-high 44 points and 13 rebounds, and the Portland Trail Blazers rallied for a 110-105 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Thursday night.

Wesley Matthews added 24 points for the Blazers (32-11), who snapped a two-game losing streak coming off a 2-2 road trip. The Blazers have not lost three straight this season.

Wilson Chandler had 18 points for Denver (20-21), which has lost four of their last five games after a five-game winning streak.

The Blazers trailed by as many as 15 points in the third quarter before pulling to 91-90 on Matthews' turnaround fadeaway before taking the lead on his 15-foot jumper.

The teams wrestled for control, but Aldridge's jumper put Portland up a 102-99 with 3:08 left.

Chandler missed a jumper with 8 seconds left and Aldridge made more free throws for the final margin.
