Trail Blazers beat Hornets 93-91 for 3rd straight road win

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Hornets associate head coach Stephen Silas expressed concern about stopping the Trail Blazers' talented backcourt. Turns out, his concerns were warranted.

CJ McCollum had 25 points, Damian Lillard flirted with a triple-double and Portland held on to beat Charlotte 93-91 on Saturday night. Lillard had 18 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds and the Trail Blazers won their third straight on the road.

"Even though it wasn't in a sexy way on the offensive end, in a sense, I think defensively we stuck in there and did the right things to make some plays," Evan Turner said.
