Portland, OR (Sports Network) - LaMarcus Aldridge poured in a game-tying 3- pointer late and then delivered the deciding bucket as time expired to send the Portland Trail Blazers to a 106-104 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.

The Trail Blazers rallied from a 21-point third quarter deficit before Aldridge stepped back in the corner to drain his first 3-pointer of the season and tie the game at 104-104 with 4.5 seconds left.

After O.J. Mayo was called for an offensive foul at the other end, Aldridge caught the inbounds pass and swished a fadeaway jumper as the buzzer sounded to give Portland to its third victory in four games.

With his 11th double-double in the month of January, Aldridge totaled 29 points and 13 rebounds.

Dirk Nowitzki knocked down a triple prior to Aldridge's 3-point make to give Dallas the lead with 11.4 seconds remaining. He finished with 26 points on 11- of-21 shooting for Dallas, which had won six of eight games coming in.
