A steady hand and cool demeanor helped Damian Lillard and visiting Portland.

Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge each scored 25 points, Nicolas Batum added a season-high 24, and the Trail Blazers won their sixth game in a row in overtime Sunday.

Lillard was 3-for-3 from the floor in overtime as the Blazers escaped after blowing a 17-point lead in regulation.

Rudy Gay forced overtime with a buzzer-beating layup and tied a season high with 30 points to go with 10 rebounds. DeMar DeRozan scored 29 points and Jonas Valanciunas added a season-high 19.

The Blazers made a season-high 15 3-pointers, finishing 15-for-32 from beyond the arc. Toronto made just three.

Toronto was 2-for-12 from the floor in overtime, while the Blazers continued to patiently move the ball and connect on 5-for-8 field goals.

Grizzlies 97, Kings 86

Zach Randolph scored nine of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and also had 10 rebounds to lead visiting Memphis.

The Grizzlies led by 20 points in the third quarter and survived a second-half rally by the Kings to win their second game in a row.

Marc Gasol had 19 points, nine assists and eight rebounds for the Grizzlies. Mike Conley also had 19 points and nine assists.

Travis Outlaw scored a season-high 18 points for the Kings, who have lost two in a row and seven out of eight.

The Kings cut the margin to 82-79 on Outlaw’s 3-pointer with 7:18 left. But Memphis responded with seven unanswered points for a 10-point lead, then put it away when Randolph’s basket from close range made it 93-82 with 1:29 left.
