PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -Damian Lillard had 36 points and the Trail Blazers beat the Los Angeles Lakers 121-103 on Saturday night for Kobe Bryant's last game in Portland.

CJ McCollum added 28 points and the Blazers led by as many as 27 points in the first half on the way to their eighth straight victory over the Lakers.

D'Angelo Russell came off the bench with 21 points for the Lakers, who dropped their sixth straight game. But all eyes were on Bryant, a Portland nemesis dating back to the 2000 Western Conference finals, who finished with 10 points.

It was the second of a back-to-back for the Lakers, who fell 108-95 to the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night. The game fell on the 10th anniversary of Bryant's 81-point game against Toronto, which remains the second-highest scoring game in NBA history.
