"I'm sore everywhere in my body."-- Nicolas Batum after his fall.

Erik Gundersen

Stotts said Bucks being undersized was part of the decision to start T-Rob. v. Spurs? "I can't say today we will stay with the same line-up"

Erik Gundersen

#Blazers close out Bucks for 104-97 win: Game rewind bit.ly/1J6lwto #ripcity

Ben Golliver

Jason Kidd said Giannis tried to re-tape sprained left ankle at halftime, then decided he couldn't go in 2nd half. Will be re-evaluated Thu.

Erik Gundersen

Final: Blazers 104, Bucks 97. Lillard with 29 points, 7 assists. Aldridge with 23 points, 15 rebounds. T-Rob with 15 points, 16 rebs.

Jason Quick

Final from Portland: Blazers 104, Bucks 97. Lillard 29, Aldridge 23 and 15, Thomas Robinson fills in for Lopez and has 15 points and 16 rebs

Mike Richman

That'll do it. #Blazers beat the Bucks 104-97. Dame 29pts, LA 23pts/15rebs, TRob 15pts/16rebs. Four game trip starts Friday in San Antonio.

Jason Quick

It wasn't easy, but the Blazers are going to beat the Bucks to improve to 20-6. Up next is toughest roadie of the year: SA, NO, HOU, OKC

Erik Gundersen

He has that Tim Duncan swag. RT @mikeacker: Weird that Blazer fans don't know that Robin Lopez only wears polo shirts.

Mike Tokito

Now, which player will Kidd have hit him to spill his drink?

Ben Golliver

Blazers F Thomas Robinson had 25 points and 30 rebounds for the entire season entering Wed. Posted 15/16 in start vs. Bucks

Jason Quick

Enormous ovation for Thomas Robinson as he is taken out of the game: 15 points, 16 rebounds, a block and tons of energy. A job well done

Erik Gundersen

Stotts finally says enough and takes T-Rob out to a huge ovation.

Kerry Eggers

That's 15 points for @Thomas Robinson, matching his career high

Erik Gundersen

Blazers booing T-Rob when the hack-a-Dwight helped them win Game 1 vs. Houston. Hilarious.

Erik Gundersen

The fans are cheering for T-Rob to make these free-throws now.

Mike Richman

Hack-a-TRob in full effect and effective. Robinson is 3-for-11 at the stripe.

Jason Quick

Bucks employing the hack-a-T-Rob tactic and it's working. Robinson is 3-for-11 at the free throw line

Erik Gundersen

Kidd doing the hack a T-Rob after Pop did it on Monday.

Mike Tokito

Well, hack-a-TRob is a thing now. Thanks, Pop.

Erik Gundersen

Batum made the free-throw and stays in the game.

Mike Richman

Batum is still in the game and he just made the flagrant free throw.

Erik Gundersen

Batum gets up. And he takes a seat on the Blazers bench. Officials give Sanders a flagrant 1.

Jason Quick

Batum up and walking off the court.

Mike Richman

Batum and walking off on his own. But moving gingerly.

Kerry Eggers

Batum's fall seemed even worse than Antetokounmpo's in the first half

Ben Golliver

Nicolas Batum is up and walking back towards Blazers bench.

Erik Gundersen

Batum's face/shoulder basically broke his fall. Foul called on Sanders who pushed Batum while he was already dunking the ball.

Mike Tokito

Didn't see it at first, but Sanders gave Batum a little shove, leading to that fall.

Mike Richman

Officials reviewing the foul on Larry Sanders.

Kerry Eggers

Sarcasm may not have been conveyed RT @Supafly77: @Kerry Eggers then you too are not welcome in Portland. #RipCity

Mike Richman

Nic Batum dunks on the break but goes down very hard on the on the follow through. Face first. That looked awful.

Ben Golliver

Nicolas Batum appeared to hit his head hard on the court after a dunk. He remains down on the court as Blazers take timeout

Jason Quick

Wow. Nic Batum did a face plant after a dunk and is down on the court.

Erik Gundersen

Nicolas Batum just had a monster dunk and a nasty fall. Still down.

Jason Quick

Thomas Robinson with 11 points and 14 rebounds with 4 minutes left ... His career high is 18 rebounds

Mike Richman

Blazers now on an 11-0 run and lead Bucks 88-79 with 4:00 left.

Mike Richman

LaMarcus Aldridge banks in a long 2 and smiles at assistant Nate Tibbets as he jogs back on D. Blazers up 7.

Mike Tokito

Thomas Robinson with 11 points, 12 rebounds, has fifth double-double of career, first of season.

Erik Gundersen

Blazers making a run with this Freeland-Robinson line-up. 84-79 Blazers with 5:50 left.

Mike Richman

Moda Center is rocking with Portland up 84-79. Loudest cheers all night. Thomas Robinson will get 2 FTs when play resumes with 5:50 left.

Jason Quick

Nic Batum's first basket of the night is a big one: A three-pointer that gives Blazers 80-79 lead. Batum now 1-for-9

Kerry Eggers

Finally! @Nicolas Batum nails a 3 for 80-79 lead. Frenchman is now 1-9 from field

Mike Richman

That is not possible. Completely bogus block/charge double foul.

Erik Gundersen

They just called a double-foul on block charge. This has to be a new one.

Kerry Eggers

I live vicariously through Free-Throw Guy

Erik Gundersen

Blazers bench is 6-for-20 tonight.

Kerry Eggers

That was a bailout foul call on Joel Freeland by ref Kane Fitzgerald #badcall

Mike Tokito

My favorite stat about Bucks is they have 57 games to get 3 more wins, which would give them more victories than they had last season.

Erik Gundersen

After that Freeland bucket, the Blazers have 18 second-chance points. Bucks have 7.

Kerry Eggers

Bucks lead @Portland Trail Blazers 70-68 after 3Q. @Damian Lillard has 24 points, @LaMarcus Aldridge 17 points & 13 rebounds. Rest of team combined for 27 pts

Mike Richman

Bucks 70, #Blazers 68 -End 3: Dame 24pts, 3rebs, 4ast, LA 17pts and 12rebs; Brandon Knight 18 for Milwaukee. Portland shooting 42%, Mil 50%

Erik Gundersen

End of 3: Bucks 70, Blazers 68. Lillard has 24 points. Aldridge with 17 and 13. Brandon Knight with 18 points to lead MIL.

Mike Richman

Khris Middleton scored 12 points in the third quarter after replacing Giannis Antetokoumpo in the lineup.

Jason Quick

Bucks announce that Giannis Antetokounmpo will not return because of a left ankle sprain

Erik Gundersen

Blazers haven't done a very good job of rotating to Khris Middleton, 39 percent 3-point shooter. He's 4/4 from deep tonight.

Erik Gundersen

Seems like those finger splints aren't affecting Lillard too much anymore. 3-for-5 from 3 and 22 points tonight. 64-64 2:23 Q3.

Kerry Eggers

Aldridge is just overpowering the Bucks, and so are the #Blazers, with a 35-22 rebounding edge. Yet they trail 64-62

Mike Richman

Damian Lillard commits the Blazers' 13th turnover of the night.

Kerry Eggers

That's 13 turnovers for #Blazers, who trail 61-60 with 4:06 left in 3Q

Jason Quick

Nicolas Batum tonight: 0-for-7 from the field, 0-for-4 from 3 pt range. Three rebounds, five assists.

Jason Quick

In his first career start, Thomas Robinson has done everything Blazers could have wanted: 9 pts, 9 rebs, hustle, few if any poor decisions

Erik Gundersen

Love Brandon Knight's game.

Erik Gundersen

Nobody has cooler almost-poster dunks than Lillard. Lefty dunk over Larry Sanders goes in and out.

Ben Golliver

Dope... http://t.co/V53z9HP0NC

Kerry Eggers

It's safe to say @Damian Lillard is feeling it tonight

Erik Gundersen

Khris Middleton in for Giannis to start the second half.

Jason Quick

Khris Middleton starts in place of Antetokoounmpo, who had 10 points and 6 rebounds before his injury

Mike Tokito

The sweater Mike Rice is wearing is actually kinda cool, not ugly at all. Or am I nuts?

Jason Quick

Antetokounmpo did not emerge from the Bucks locker room after halftime

Blazers Dancers

BLAZERS up by 2 at the half!!! #PORvsMIL http://t.co/xA624oPnE8

Jason Quick

Blazers are shooting 38% and have 10 turnovers, but lead 43-41 at halftime over Milwaukee

Mike Richman

Aldridge (10&10) with his 14th double-double of the year in the first half.

Mike Tokito

The 3 players tied for double-double league lead: Zach Randolph, Pau Gasol and John Wall. Hardly the trio you'd expect.

Mike Tokito

Aldridge already has his double-double, his 14th of season. That means he's only one short of tying for the league lead.

Erik Gundersen

Half: Blazers 43, Bucks 41. Lillard has 17 points, 3 rebounds. Brandon Knight and Giannis each with 10 for the Bucks.

Mike Richman

#Blazers 43, Bucks 41 -Half: Dame 17pts, LA 10pts/10rebs, TRob with 7pts/6rebds in 1st career start. Giannis and Knight 10pts each for Mil

Sean Meagher

Blazers up 43-41 at the half.

Jason Quick

Upon video replay, he rolled his left ankle upon takeoff for the layin

Jason Quick

Milwaukee had to foul intentionally as Giannis squirmed under the opposite basket. Frankly, I'm amazed he was able to walk it off.

Mike Richman

Giannis heads straight back to the locker room.

Jason Quick

Antetokounmpo was able to walk off the floor, but he went directly to the locker room.

Ben Golliver

Giannis up and walking under his own power to the locker room after a hard fall.

Mike Richman

Giannis Antetokoumpo went down hard, but is getting up now and walking to bench on his own.

Jason Quick

Giannis was driving for a layin and in midair something gave - an Achilles or knee - and he crashed to the floor hard.

Erik Gundersen

Giannis is walking off the court under his own power.

Jason Quick

Giannis Antetokounmp is down on the floor with what looks like a serious injury

Erik Gundersen

Robinson's energy has been valuable in the closing minutes of the first half.

Jason Quick

Just when you think the Blazers can't throw a more hideous pass ... somebody one-ups his teammate

Kerry Eggers

Make that nine team turnovers now for #Blazers -- too many

Mike Richman

Blazers are a mess right now.
