Portland is fifth in the Western Conference, 2 1/2 games ahead of the Warriors.
Portland, OR (SportsNetwork.com) -
The Portland Trail Blazers halted a four-game losing streak last time out and will try to keep the momentum going Sunday night when the Golden State Warriors visit the Moda Center.
The Blazers dropped the first four on a southern swing, but salvaged a win with a 111-103 victory at the Smoothie King Center over the New Orleans Pelicans.
Damian Lillard poured in 27 points and had five assists and was brilliant down the stretch.
Age limit is wrong

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
The NBA's age limit requirement states a player must be "at least 19 years of age during the calendar year in which the Draft is held," and "at least one NBA Season has elapsed since the player's graduation from high school."
If new Commissioner Adam Silver has his way, that age will be raised to 20.
The idea stinks, but then so does the current rule.
First, as background, the notion of age-related restriction has never sat well in this man's soul.
A person has to be 16 to get a driver's license in the United States, although that varies state to state.
