Through three quarters, it looked as though the Portland Trail Blazers would sink further into malaise with a loss to yet another team far below them in the standings.

But furious fourth quarter performances from LaMarcus Aldridge, Nicolas Batum, Wesley Matthews and Thomas Robinson lifted the Trail Blazers to a 110-94 victory over the Orlando Magic Wednesday night at the Moda Center.

“Well we need that one,” said Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts. “I was pleased for a lot of reasons. I thought our defense to start the game, our defense in the fourth quarter obviously was very good. Thomas Robinson came in and gave us nice energy in the fourth quarter. Wes carried us midway through the second half and LA was great all night.”
