PHILADELPHIA -- The Portland Trail Blazers nearly shot their way into the NBA record book. LaMarcus Aldridge had 20 points and 16 rebounds, Nicolas Batum added 17 points and the Trail Blazers set a franchise record for 3-pointers with 21 in their 139-105 victory over the skidding Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night. Damian Lillard scored 16 and Dorell Wright had 15 on 5-for-5 shooting from beyond the arc. Wesley Matthews added 14 points for the Northwest Division leaders, who won their third in a row and improved to 20-4. They became the second NBA team to reach 20 wins, joining the Indiana Pacers (20-3). "Everyone is taking shots with confidence," Wright said. "It doesnt surprise me when guys are making shots like that because we have a lot of great shooters." Mo Williams also had 14 points, Robin Lopez 12 and Thomas Robinson 10 for Portland, which put eight players in double figures and moved to 10-2 on the road. The Trail Blazers broke their club record for 3-pointers for the second time in eight days after hitting 17 against Utah on Dec. 6. In the process, they racked up 139 points, the most by any team in the league this season. The Los Angeles Clippers scored 137 against the Houston Rockets on Nov. 4. Portland fell two 3-pointers shy of the NBA mark for a game. "I know we made a lot of 3s and it was all in the flow of the game," Lillard said. "Guys made good plays to get guys looks and weve got good shooters." Tony Wroten led the reeling Sixers with 18 points and Hollis Thompson had 17. Spencer Hawes added 16, Thaddeus Young had 15 and James Anderson 14. Playing once again without rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams, the Sixers have dropped six straight and 10 of the last 11 games. Carter-Williams sat out for the sixth consecutive game because of a skin infection on his right knee. The Sixers are 1-9 without Carter-Williams, the Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for October and November. "I want to leave it far behind -- really, really far behind," 76ers coach Brett Brown said of the loss. Portland broke open a close game with some stellar shooting, especially from beyond the arc. The Trail Blazers hit 11 of their first 20 tries from 3-point range and were 18 for 32 by the end of the third quarter for a 111-79 lead. Wright hit No. 18 to break the team record as the third-quarter buzzer sounded. "This is one of those games where they were making all their shots and all we can do sometimes is throw our hands up," Young said. "Its like, What else is there to do?" It was the latest record-setting performance for the streaking Blazers. In their previous game two nights ago, a 111-104 victory over Houston, Aldridge posted the first 30-point, 25-rebound game in franchise history. This time, the Trail Blazers didnt need nearly as much from Aldridge with such a balanced effort up and down the lineup. "Weve got good shooters," coach Terry Stotts said. "They have a track record of being good shooters." The Sixers never posed a serious threat in the fourth. The Blazers led by as many as seven points in the first half and wound up with a 71-64 advantage heading into the locker room.

Attempting a re-launch of his NHL career this fall, Petri Kontiola, the former Blackhawks draft pick, was plainly dejected after his second exhibition game with the Leafs on Wednesday night. Kontiola, a 29-year-old who spent the past five seasons in the KHL, knew that what hed offered so far probably wasnt good enough. “Im not doing that well right now and I know it,” he said gloomily. “Thats about it.” Kontiolas biggest challenge in making the leap back to the NHL, as per Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle, was his ability to keep up with the pace of the game. And thats been precisely the struggle for the Finnish forward. His long, choppy stride appears just a step too slow for the high speeds of the NHL game, evident even at this early stage of the exhibition season. He teamed uncomfortably with Phil Kessel and James van Riemsdyk on a de facto top line against Ottawa, finishing without a shot on goal in about 13 minutes. “We try to use these games as assessment periods and sometimes people play themselves into situations and play them out of situations,” Carlyle said, not mentioning Kontiola specifically. “We tried to put people in situations where they can have the best possible chance for success and then thats when the evaluation process starts.” The evident fact of Kontiolas struggle, early as it may be in training camp, has made Torontos once uncertain centre dynamic become pretty clear pretty quick. With Kontiola seemingly out of the mix – hes not getting faster overnight – the final two centre spots would appear safely in the hands of Peter Holland and Mike Santorelli, an unproven duo in different regards. Given Carlyles stated intention of three “scoring” lines, Holland would seem the probable choice for third line centre duties beyond Tyler Bozak and Nazem Kadri. Just 23, the former first round pick has offered hints of promise in 68 NHL games – albeit inconsistently – including five goals and 10 points in 39 games with the Leafs last season. Making clear that he was just a rung above the American League in the spring, he went on to thrive with the Marlies iin the playoffs, boasting 15 points in 11 games.dddddddddddd But can he fulfill his potential with the increased NHL opportunity likely to come his way? That will indeed be the question. Santorelli could certainly push him for some of those offensive minutes, but appears better suited (of the two) to absorb the difficult minutes left by Jay McClement, a Carlyle favourite whom the organization let walk in the offseason. Under the direction of since-deposed Vancouver head coach John Tortorella, Santorelli was utilized in challenging defensive situations, also killing penalties along the way. And he fared okay, posting positive Corsi numbers at even-strength. If Carlyle can find in him a player to handle those difficult assignments in the coming year he could alleviate some of the burden carried by Bozak and the teams top trio, which was often overloaded against top lines a year ago. “Hes going to get opportunities,” Carlyle said of Santorelli. “We brought the player in feeling that he could make a contribution.” Unlike McClement, who scored just four goals in 81 games, Santorelli also offers some offensive potential. Averaging nearly 19 minutes, he scored 10 times in 49 games with his hometown Canucks, adding a 20-goal campaign to the resume in Florida a few years earlier. “I think as a player you want to come in and help with the team any way you can and thats all Im looking to do here,” said Santorelli, who also won 51 per cent of his faceoffs. As for Kontiola, his fight to remain in the race for a job with the Leafs hangs by an apparent thread. Though the transition to North American-sized rinks would seem a challenge, even for a player who spent two seasons over here, he refused to touch it after Wednesdays game, brushing it off as an excuse. “No, a good player can play wherever,” he said. The team wasnt quite as dismissive. “Were watching him very closely,” Peter Horachek, the Leafs assistant coach, said before the game, “as we are with a couple of the other centremen and seeing where they stand because theres some questions to be answered for our team coming through training camp.” One at least appears increasingly closer to a solution.
