Blazers prevent Pacers from clinching with 106-98 win

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Damian Lillard plans to take a bit more control over games in the absence of backcourt mate CJ McCollum.

Lillard had 30 points and 15 assists as the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Indiana Pacers 106-98 on Monday night in their first game since McCollum injured his left knee.

"I guess being a little more hands-on and managing what's going on out there, just knowing that a guy who averages 22 points isn't on the floor," Lillard said of his adjustment. "It doesn't mean I have to score more points, or dominate the ball, but just making sure that I've got control over what's happening out there a little bit more."
