The Blazers trimmed the Pistons' lead to 60-54 on Aldridge's dunk. They got even closer when rookie Jerryd Bayless dunked to make it 64-62.
Outlaw and Sergio Rodriguez each made layups to start the fourth quarter to put Portland ahead for the first time, 69-68. It was short-lived, however, and Detroit went back in front on Arron Affalo's 3-pointer.
Notes: Wallace played for the Blazers from 1996-2004 and was part of the so-called "Jail Blazers" team that became more known for trouble off the court than for success on it. He had a particular disdain for the Portland media, and often replied to questions with the pat response: "Both teams played hard." ... Earlier this season, the Blazers defeated the Pistons 96-85 in Detroit. Aldridge had 27 points.
