Blazers not done yet in Portland

It's been a rough second half for LaMarcus Aldridge, but the Grizzlies are struggling offensively in the fourth without Mike Conley, and the Blazers have tied things up late in regulation. Follow live

Baxter Holmes @BaxterHolmes

If this is LMA’s swan song in Portland, it hasn’t been pretty. He’s 5-20 from the field, including 0-9 in the second half.

Kevin Pelton @kpelton

Grizz suddenly missing the pull-up jumpers the Blazers are happy to surrender. An opening here if Portland can score.

Michael Wallace @WallaceNBA_ESPN

Blazers not same confident team they were in first half. Doesn't look like they're running any plays. Just settling, jacking and praying.

Kevin Pelton @kpelton

Dave Joerger mixed sporting metaphor pregame, referencing playing baseball smallball and football ground-control game. Griz did that in 3rd.

Blazers on the brink in Game 4

Portland entered the third quarter with a 7-point lead. The Blazers exit the period trailing the Grizzlies by 7, and Portland's season could come down to these final 12 minutes. Follow live

Calathes filling in for Conley just fine

With Mike Conley out after surgery to repair facial fractures, Memphis PG Nick Calathes is picking up the slack. He has a career-high 4 three-pointers -- twice as many as Portland's starters -- and the Grizzlies lead. Follow live

A rough start to the 3rd for Blazers

Portland has missed its first 10 field goals of the third quarter and has just 2 points midway through the period. LaMarcus Aldridge is responsible for 6 of those misses. Follow live

Russillo @ryenarussillo

Lillard completely lost on the 3 by Lee. Looked like he would cut over the screen trailing and then went baseline. Maybe a bad switch?

Blazers lead 55-48 at break. Key stat: Portland outscoring Memphis 30-18 in paint. Gasol & Z-Bo essentially non-factors at 3-for-12 FGs

Lillard and Aldridge playing like stars

It is loud inside the Moda Center, as the Blazers take a 55-48 lead on the Grizzlies into halftime. Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge have combined for 26 points, and Meyers Leonard added 13 off the bench. Follow live

Blazers have largest lead of the game as they are up 43-47. Meyers Leonard's 11 points off the bench might have something to do with it...

Michael Wallace @WallaceNBA_ESPN

Of course, it's perimeter D you've got to worry about tonight without Conley. For first time this series, Lillard getting past everyone.

Kevin Pelton @kpelton

Overshadowed by Meyers Mania: Blazers getting the best of the Grizzlies on the offensive glass, surprisingly.
