Blazers clinch playoff spot with 109-86 win over Phoenix

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (AP) -

Damian Lillard scored 19 points before sitting the final quarter and the Portland Trail Blazers secured a playoff berth with a 109-86 victory Monday night over the Phoenix Suns.

The Blazers have won four straight as they edge closer to their first Northwest Division title since 2008-09.

LaMarcus Aldridge added 17 points and seven rebounds, and Portland led by as many as 31 points. The Blazers rested all of their starters in the fourth quarter after building a 92-65 lead.

The Suns have lost four straight, and while they are mathematically still in the playoff picture, the chances are dwindling. Phoenix plays six of its last eight games on the road.

Gerald Green came off the bench to lead the Suns with 13 points. Eric Bledsoe added 12 in the Suns' seventh loss by 20 or more points this season.
