The Portland Trail Blazers improved to 10-2 on the road with a 139-105 win over the Philadelphia 76ers Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

Philadelphia (7-18) went toe-to-toe with Portland (20-4) for two quarters and the reasoning behind that could have stemmed from earlier in the day.

The traffic that the annual Army-Navy football game generated this morning prevented the Trail Blazers from arriving to shootaround on time. Due to the late arrival, Stotts wasn’t able to go through his full shootaround regime and was forced to cut it short.

The Sixers, who have dropped nine of its last 10 games, flew into town from playing the Toronto Raptors last night. The traffic jam couldn’t have come at a better time for them.

However, motor vehicles packed together wouldn’t be enough to stop the Trail Blazers for an extended amount of time as they converted on a franchise record 21 three-pointers. The old record of 17 threes made lasted only eight days when they pounded the Utah Jazz 130-98 on Dec. 6 at the Moda Center.

The NBA record for threes in a game is 23. Portland had 21 threes with 8:32 remaining in the game.

“We can’t get ahead of ourselves,” LaMarcus Aldridge said before tonight’s game. “Our success on the road this year doesn’t mean anything. We have to take it one game at a time. That’s our focus, to take it one day at a time.”

LaMarcus Aldridge, a legitimate early MVP candidate, went for 18 points and pulled down a game-high 16 rebounds. Sixers coach Brett Brown said he is a fan of Aldridge, noting that the two-time All-Star is finally getting his due.
