    The Portland Trail Blazers got a total team effort Wednesday, with five players scoring in double figures, to win 93-91 over the Golden State Warriors in front of 17,934 at Oracle Arena.

    It was the team's second victory in its last seven road games and snapped a two-game losing streak.

    Gerald Wallace led the Trail Blazers in the absence of All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge, finishing with 24 points in his breakout road performance of the season, including 4-of-4 from beyond the three-point arc and 8-of-8 from the free throw line.

    Portland (16-14) trailed 88-83 with less than three minutes remaining in the game but would draw level on a driving Marcus Camby layup from Raymond Felton and a Wallace three-pointer, also assisted by Felton, with 1:56 to play.

    Camby finished with Portland's lone double-double, tallying 12 points while pulling down 11 boards, and Felton added 10 points and six assists.

    After two free throws from Stephen Curry, who finished with eight points and eight assists, Golden State led 90-88 with 1:17 left on the clock.

    Jamal Crawford's three-pointer put Portland up 91-90 and a 1-of-2 trip to the line for Nate Robinson was followed by a 2-of-2 trip to the charity stripe for Crawford to seal the final margin as Robinson lost the handle driving for a potentially game-tying shot as time expired.

    Crawford finished with 14 points and six assists in 27:30 off the Trail blazers bench and Nicolas Batum turned in a solid performance in his second consecutive start, scoring 17 points and adding four rebounds, three assists and a pair each of steals and blocks.

    Portland trailed by 12 points, 35-23, early in the second quarter but would charge back with a 15-4 run, capped by Craig Smith's three-point play, to close to within 39-38 midway through the period. The Trail Blazers took a 57-54 lead into the halftime break.

    Golden State (11-15) was led by forward David Lee with 29 points and 11 rebounds followed by Robinson off the Warriors bench with 21 points.

    The Trail Blazers return to Portland to take on the Los Angeles Clippers Thursday, 7:30 p.m. at the Rose Garden. The game can be seen locally and nationally on TNT. 750 The Game and NBA Audio League Pass will have the play-by-play call.
