----- Damian Lillard finished with 41 points and Jerami Grant added 20 points and seven assists as the Portland Trail Blazers snap a three-game losing streak with a 122-119 victory over the Orlando Magic Sunday at Amway Center in Orlando.

With Anfernee Simons and Jusuf Nukric out of the lineup, the Trail Blazers needed to find some scoring help around Damian Lillard in order to snap a three-game losing streak. Sunday at Amway Center in Orlando, Lillard got the help he needed.

Jerami Grant finished with 20 points and seven assists, Cam Reddish scored 16, and Nassir Little added 11 points off the bench to help Portland defeat Orlando 122-119.

Lillard finished with a game-high 41 points on 10-of-25 shooting including 17-of-20 from the foul line. He added nine rebounds and six assists.

Portland (30-34) allowed 58 points in the paint and committed 17 turnovers, but were able to overcome their deficiencies with a 46-38 edge in rebounding and winning the battle at the three-point line.

It was an exciting back-and-forth affair. With the game tied at 113, Little nailed an open three-pointer with 35.0 seconds remaining to give Portland a 116-113 advantage. The Blazers were able to hold off the Magic the rest of the way.

Up Next- The Trail Blazers play the second of a back-to-back Monday afternoon in Detroit against the Pistons. Scheduled tip off is 4:00 PM.
