The AP reports:
Brandon Roy’s season had been fraught with uncertainty, first over the stability of his knees, then over his diminished role with the team.
All those doubts melted away on Saturday when he led the Portland Trail Blazers to one of the greatest comebacks in NBA playoff history.
With 39.2 seconds left, Roy made a go-ahead bank shot that gave the Trail Blazers a stunning 84-82 comeback victory over the Dallas Mavericks—and evened their first-round playoff series at two games apiece.
Roy finished with 24 points—18 in the fourth quarter alone—as the Blazers erased a 23-point deficit. Portland became the third NBA team in the shot clock era to win a playoff game when trailing by 18 points or more heading into the fourth quarter…
Dirk Nowitzki had 20 points to lead the Mavericks. Terry finished with 13 off the bench.
Aldridge finished with 18 points for the Blazers, while Gerald Wallace had 10 points and 11 rebounds…
Wesley Matthews led the Blazers with 25 points in Portland’s 97-92 victory in Game 3 on Thursday night, which drew the Blazers within 2-1 into best-of-7 series.
