PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Brandon Roy scored 27 points and the Trail Blazers defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 111-94 on Monday night in a game marred by Portland's Rudy Fernandez being carried off the court on a stretcher after a hard foul.
Fernandez, a rookie from spain, was hurt late in the third quarter when he was by Trevor Ariza while going up for a shot. He was carried from the court on a stretcher with his neck in a brace.
Fernandez was conscious and alert when he left the court, and he had full movement of his extremities, the team said. But he was experiencing chest pain and was taken to a hospital.
Travis Outlaw added 22 points for the Blazers, who have won 12 straight at the Rose Garden.
