MINNEAPOLIS -- The banged-up Minnesota Timberwolves were just what the Portland Trail Blazers needed. Having lost six of their previous 10 games, and with a date against first-place Oklahoma City looming on Tuesday, the Blazers took advantage of a Timberwolves team missing three of its best players. "We felt that way even if they had all their guys," LaMarcus Aldridge said after scoring 26 points to lead Portland past Minnesota 117-110 Saturday night. "If they had those guys, it definitely wouldve been different, but this was a must-win game either way." Aldridge scored 16 of his points in the second half and Wesley Matthews added 21 as the Blazers held off a tougher-than-expected Wolves team missing starters Kevin Love, Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Martin. Just minutes before tipoff, the Wolves announced Love -- their All-Star power forward -- would miss the game with a bruised left quadriceps sustained in Friday nights loss in New Orleans. Shortly before that, Martin was ruled out indefinitely with a broken left thumb, also suffered against the Pelicans. Combined with Pekovic, the trio accounts for an average of 60 points and 25 rebounds per game. "It takes a little edge off the game," Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. "We found out Kevin Martin wasnt going to play early and then Love wasnt going to play. I think that deflates the balloon a little bit, you kind of get yourself up for guys like that." But the Blazers knew they couldnt afford to let up against the scrappy Wolves, who trailed for most of the first half but led 82-75 with 1:50 to play in the third quarter. Corey Brewer led Minnesota with 26 points and Ricky Rubio scored a career-high 25. Minnesota led 87-85 with 9:48 to play in the game before Portland went on a 13-1 run to put the game away. Minnesota pulled within 101-96 with 3:29 to play before Matthews scored five straight and Robin Lopez hit a layup to put the game out of reach. The Wolves got 19 points from Chase Budinger, 14 from Dante Cunningham and a season-high 12 from rookie Shabazz Muhammad. "It doesnt matter whos out," coach Rick Adelman said. "The next guy steps up, thats how you have to approach it. You cant worry about whos not playing, worry about who is playing, and make the best out of the situation. I thought we played well tonight." Aldridge had six points during Portlands game-deciding 13-1 run in the fourth quarter. That run came with Rubio on the bench. Rookie C.J. McCollum had a season-high 19 points and Nicolas Batum added 15 for the Blazers, who finished their four-game road trip 2-2. "We were really counting on our bench tonight because I really wanted to rest the starters," Stotts said. "They all played a lot of minutes last night and the first half the bench really gave us a boost. We were able to make a little ground with them in the game." Minnesotas key starters also got a rest -- in their street clothes. "Its tough having all of those guys out," Budinger said. "Those are huge impact guys for us and were hoping Kevin was able to go but he was really struggling and hurting. He tried to get himself going but just couldnt do it."

The Blazers played a second-straight game without backup point guard Mo Williams, who left the team Friday for family reasons. Stotts did not have an update on when Williams might return. ...

Everton Preview West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has been around the game long enough to not get too high when things are going well and not get too low when they arent.CHICAGO -- Jacoby Ellsburys towering drive kept going as Moses Sierra retreated in right field. Sierra made a leaping try as he reached the wall, but it was way over his outstretched glove. This time, the New York Yankees had the biggest swing on the South Side of Chicago. Ellsbury homered with two outs in the 10th inning, and the Yankees snapped an eight-game road losing streak against the White Sox with a 4-3 victory on Saturday. "I knew I hit it well," Ellsbury said. "I thought I might have hit it a little too high, but great feeling once it went out. Excited to get that win." The Yankees scored three times in the ninth against Ronald Belisario and then grabbed their first lead of the day when Ellsbury connected against Zach Putnam (2-1) for his second homer. Dellin Betances (3-0) pitched a perfect inning for the win and David Robertson finished for his 10th save in 11 chances, bouncing back nicely after yielding Adam Dunns game-ending homer in Chicagos 6-5 victory on Friday night. Adam Eaton singled and stole second with two down, but Robertson struck out Gordon Beckham to end the game. "Last night was a tough one. The team battled really hard, we got the lead and I wasnt able to nail it down," Robertson said. "They did the same thing today and I was not going to let them down today." John Danks pitched eight shutout innings for the White Sox, who had won four of five. Beckham and Eaton had three hits apiece. "Just trying to get the ball, go, throw strikes and let these guys work behind me," Danks said. "It worked out. They made some good plays on some balls that were well placed and caught some breaks. You need that in this game, especially against that team." Danks handed a 3-0 lead over to Belisario after his best start of the season. The right-hander yielded a one-out single to Ellsbury, but was in position for his third save when he struck out Mark Teixeira for the second out. Then it all fell apart in a hurry for the closer, who has allowed at least one run in each of his last three outings. Ellsbury took second on fielders indifference and scored on Alffonso Sorianos ground-rule double.ddddddddddddYangervis Solarte singled home Soriano and moved to second when Belisario walked Ichiro Suzuki. Pinch-hitter Brian McCann then completed the comeback with a bloop single into centre field, driving in Solarte with the tying run. Brendan Ryan grounded out to end the inning, and the crowd of 33,413 booed as Belisario made his way to the dugout. "Obviously huge at-bats to get us going," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "We hadnt done much up to that point." Danks allowed three hits, struck out four and walked none. The left-hander was 1-4 with an 8.23 ERA in his previous five starts. Teixeiras ground-rule double in the fourth was New Yorks only hit before John Ryan Murphy and Ryan had consecutive two-out singles in the eighth. But Danks got Brett Gardner to fly out to right to end the inning. Vidal Nuno pitched seven-plus innings for New York in the longest start of the season for the converted reliever. He allowed nine hits, struck out five and walked one. The White Sox did all their damage against Nuno in the first. Eaton and Beckham started the inning with consecutive singles, and Dayan Viciedo then made it 1-0 with a double into the gap in left-centre. Dunn drove in Beckham with a sacrifice fly and Viciedo came home on Alexei Ramirezs groundout. "I was up in the zone the first inning, first half of the lineup and it was just making pitches," Nuno said. "It was a long game, guys came back and it was unbelievable how we came back and kept fighting." NOTES: Coming into the day, Danks was 2-3 with a 7.11 ERA in six career starts against the Yankees. ... Girardi said reliever Shawn Kelley (back) could play catch next week. ...
