Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge sparked a furious rally down the stretch as the duo combined for 49 points on the night. Luke Babbitt hit a game-tying three with 22 seconds left to force overtime then nailed another triple in the extra session to seal the Blazers' 118-112 come-from-behind victory. Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap took the blame for the tough loss.
