PORTLAND, Ore. — Damian Lillard had 39 points, including seven 3-pointers, and the Portland Trail Blazers handed the Minnesota Timberwolves their sixth straight loss with a 135-117 victory. 

CJ McCollum added 20 points for the Blazers, who led by 33 in the second half. Jusuf Nurkic had 17 points and seven rebounds before Portland rested its starters in the fourth quarter. 

D’Angelo Russell and Anthony Edwards each scored 26 points for the Timberwolves. 

Minnesota aims to stop its six-game losing streak when the Timberwolves take on San Antonio. Center Karl-Anthony Towns remains out with a wrist injury, and Josh Okogie will not play due to a hamstring problem.
