Portland wins 12th straight with victory over Detroit
Damian Lillard had 24 points, eight assists and seven rebounds, and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Detroit Pistons 100-87 on Saturday night for their 12th straight victory.
CJ McCollum added 16 points for the Blazers, who have the longest current winning streak in the league. It’s the longest streak for the franchise since it won 13 in a row in December 2007.
Portland (43-26) also earned its season-best ninth straight home win – a timely streak as it tries to hold on to third place in the Western Conference standings.
