Former Blazers center Robin Lopez added 13 points and 11 rebounds.I was talking to D-Wade before the game and he tells me to go out with a killer instinct, make them adjust to you -- go out with a full head of steam and show them why you are one of the best players in the league, Butler said. Thats what I try to do. Having D-Wade tell me that makes me think there is some truth to it.The Blazers, who had won five of six, were cold from the start, falling behind by as many as 26 points. Damian Lillard, who made just two shots from the field in the first half, finished with 19 points.Chicago, coming off a 106-95 victory over Washington on Saturday, was without Rajon Rondo because of a left ankle sprain. Jerian Grant made his first start of the season and had 18 points.The Blazers played their third straight game without starting forward Al-Farouq Aminu, who has a sore left calf and is expected to be re-evaluated next week. Meyers Leonard has been inserted into the lineup in his absence, but he struggled and played 15 minutes with no points.The Bulls built a 20-7 lead to open the game as Portland struggled, hitting just two of 13 shots. The Blazers were outscored 35-14 in the first quarter.Butler led the way with 11 points.

Wade had a two-handed dunk to extend Chicagos lead to 66-42.We believe in ourselves, we are buying into the system, everyone is working on their game, Butler said. We are actually paying attention to the scouting reports and doing what were supposed to do to win.Blazers coach Terry Stotts was asked if it was just one of those nights for Portland.I dont know, I think its difficult to evaluate. You ask about effort? When you shoot 20 percent (in the first quarter) I dont think thats effort, Stotts said. So thats why its a little difficult to evaluate when youre struggling on the offensive end.TIP-INSBulls: The Bulls lead the league with an average of 13.6 offensive rebounds per game. They had 19 against Portland. ... Doug McDermott was also out because of a concussion. ... Lopez and LaMarcus Aldridge, Nicolas Batum and Wesley Matthews all left the Blazers prior to last season, leaving Lillard as the lone starter to return.Trail Blazers: The Trail Blazers hosted the teams first Pride Night to celebrate diversity and inclusion.

BARCELONA, Spain -- Giovani Dos Santos scored the equalizer and set up the late winner in a four-minute span to lead Villarreals 3-2 comeback victory at Almeria on Monday, ensuring the clubs successful return to Spains first division. Promoted Almeria outplayed Villarreal in front of its fans at Juegos Mediterraneos Stadium in the first half, with striker Rodrigo Rios scoring in the 39th minute from a pass from Rafael Ramos. Villarreal levelled in the 65th through Sebastian Dubarbiers own goal, but Rios restored the hosts lead when he controlled Jesus "Suso" Fernandezs cross and fired home to record a double in the 74th. Almeria appeared set to collect the three points until the 83rd, when Javier Aquino passed for fellow Mexico international Dos Santos to tap in and make it 2-2. Dos Santos created the winner three minutes later by dribbling down the right side, cutting back, and passing between two defenders for Jonathan Pereira to send the ball bouncing into the corner of the net. Elsewhere, in the last games of the opening round, Alberto Bueno scored two goals as Rayo Vallecano spoiled Elches first game in Spains topflight in 24 years, and Espanyol came from behind to earn a 2-2 draw at Celta Vigo. Rayo acquired Bueno from Valladolid earlier this month, and the attacking midfielder did his best to help the Madrid-based team forget the several first-choice players it sold this off-season to reduce debt. Bueno shone early with his passing at Vallecas Stadium and scored when Saul Niguez found him running clear down the centre of the area to fire the ball into the net in the 40th. Alberto Perea went on for the injured Jose Carlos Fernandez and doubled the lead with a long-range strike in the 44th, before Bueno also struck from outside the area in the 74th. Rayo coach Paco Jemez applauded the contributions especially of his new players, including Saul, who aarrived on loan from Atletico Madrid in the off-season.dddddddddddd "The dynamic of the way we work at Rayo makes it so all the new people adapt quickly to the mechanisms of our team," Jemez said. "We need another signing. We are not lacking quality, but we are short on quantity." Espanyol rallied after Denmark midfielder Michael Krohn-Dehli assisted on two goals to give Celta a commanding advantage. Krohn-Dehli brightened an infringement-filled first half in the 42nd by using an audacious flip to scoop the ball over a defender and leave Alex Lopez alone to beat goalkeeper Kiko Casilla. Celta went up 2-0 seconds after halftime when Krohn-Dehli picked out unmarked striker Charles in the area to head his lobbed pass down into the corner of the net. But Espanyol midfielder Victor Sanchez halved the difference in the 53rd with a curled strike from long range, and Javi Lopez met substitute Thievy Bifoumas run with a long pass for the forward to size up the keeper and drive in the 75th-minute equalizer. "The result is fair," said Celtas new coach Luis Enrique, formerly of Roma. "Our opponent also did things to get this result. Their first goal arrived when we were playing our best." Casilla still had to make an acrobatic save to tip Gustavo Cabrals header over the bar to protect the point for Javier Aguirres side. "I fully trust in Kiko," said Aguirre about his goalie. "It was an extraordinary save. I think he can keep growing and carve his name in Spanish football." On Sunday, Barcelona thrashed Levante 7-0 with Lionel Messi scoring twice in the debut of Brazil striker Neymar. Real Madrid edged out Real Betis 2-1, Atletico Madrid beat Sevilla 3-1, and Granada won 2-1 at Osasuna. On Saturday, Real Sociedad beat Getafe 2-0, Athletic Bilbao downed Valladolid 2-1, and Valencia won 1-0 over Malaga. ' ' '
