— Brandon Roy scored 22 points before sitting much of the second half with a tight right hamstring and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Milwaukee Bucks 120-108 on Wednesday night.

Roy, who has been working overtime for the injury-depleted Blazers, went to the locker room with a little more than six minutes left in the game for treatment. He did not return.


Portland, which led by as many as 33 points in the second half, didn’t need their two-time All-Star. The Blazers shot 60.3 percent from the field in the game.


Ersan Ilyasova scored 24 points for Milwaukee, which has lost three straight after a three-game winning streak.


The Bucks continue to adjust to the prospect of Michael Redd being sidelined for the rest of the season. Redd tore ligaments in his left knee for the second time in less than a year on Sunday night in the second quarter of Milwaukee’s 95-77 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.


The Bucks’ guard, who will need surgery, also had surgery in March after tearing the same ligaments last January.
