    PORTLAND, Ore. -- Nemanja Mitrovic and Jared Stohl scored 21 points each, while canning five 3-pointers each, to lead Portland to a come-from-behind 88-79 victory over Utah on Friday night.

    Mitrovic scored 18 of his points in the second half as the Pilots (12-3) overcame an 11-point second-half deficit with a 13-0 run.

    Will Clyburn had 24 points to lead the Utes (7-7) while Chris Kupets added 20.

    Portland scored the first 11 points while Utah missed its first two shots and committed four turnovers.

    But the lopsided play didn't last long as the Utes came back with a 21-5 run, and stretched their lead to 40-30 just before the break.

    Portland turned the contest around with 13 unanswered points, including eight by Stohl, to take a 57-53 lead.

    Mitrovic scored 16 of Portland's next 24 points to give the Pilots an 81-70 lead with 2:32 left.
