Wesley Matthews played in place of Brandon Roy and scored a career-high tying 30 points and the Blazers defeated the Jazz 100-89 at the Rose Garden. Matthews was very aggressive against his former team by scoring from outside, inside, and at the foul line. He made four three-pointers and was 8-of-9 from the three throw line. LaMarcus Aldridge proved to be an All-Star this season with 27 points, including dunks after dunks.
Returning to the starting lineup after an ankle injury, Marcus Camby dominated the paint and lead Portland with a season-high 20 rebounds. Andre Miller added 16 points and 10 assists in the victory. Before the game, the Blazers announced that Brandon Roy was out indefinitely because of sore knees. The Blazers are currently 7-3 without Brandon Roy. Portland will take on the Houston Rockets on Sunday at the Rose Garden.
