NBA roundup: Trail Blazers hold off Nets

Associated Press
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. ó Brandon Roy scored 29 points and rookie Jerryd Bayless added a career-high 23 to lead the Portland Trail Blazers to a 105-99 victory over New Jersey on Thursday night, snapping the Nets’ season-high four-game home winning streak.
LaMarcus Aldridge added 20 points and Travis Outlaw scored all 13 of his points in the second half, when the Trail Blazers rallied from an 11-point deficit.
Blazers guard Steve Blake will be sidelined for seven to 10 days with a separated shoulder.
Bulls 102, Cavaliers 93 (OT)
CHICAGO ó Luol Deng scored 22 points and Derrick Rose finished with 16.
Tied at 87 after LeBron James’ 18-footer banged off the rim at the end of regulation, the Bulls scored 12 of the first 13 points in OT.
James shot 8-for-28 and had 28 points. Cavs guard Delonte West fractured his right wrist during a nasty collision with Rose.
West tried to block Rose’s layup from behind, and both players crashed to the court. West stayed down clutching his wrist. He also had a cut above his left eye that required two stitches.
NO SUSPENSION
DENVER ó J.R. Smith won’t be suspended for throwing an elbow that angered Dallas owner Mark Cuban, who might still face punishment for going onto the court to voice his displeasure with Smith.
SUNS
DENVER ó Phoenix Suns center Shaquille O’Neal was inactive for Thursday’s late game at Denver for what Phoenix coach Terry Porter said was a “routine night off.”
