PORTLAND, Ore. — Dorell Wright hit a 3-pointer with 7.9 seconds left and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the late-charging Sacramento Kings, 100-99, on Wednesday night.

Ray McCallum missed a 21-foot jumper as time ran out for the Kings and Portland’s Robin Lopez grabbed the rebound and held it tight for the victory. It was Wright’s only basket of the game.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 22 points to lead the Blazers, who have won six of their past seven games.

DeMarcus Cousins had 30 points and 12 rebounds for the Kings, who were without injured guard Rudy Gay. Sacramento has lost four straight and sit near the bottom of the conference in front of the Los Angeles Lakers and Utah.

Sacramento trailed by as many as 15 points late in the first half, but the Kings pressured the Blazers in the second and tied it at 84 on McCallum’s 3-pointer with 8:17 left in the game.

Damian Lillard’s 3-pointer put Portland up 91-86, but Cousins’ layup tied it again at 93 with 3:12 left.

Aldridge dunked, but Travis Outlaw’s jumper tied it again before Cousins scored to make it 97-95 for the Kings with 1:31 left. It was Sacramento’s first lead of the game.

Lopez made two free throws for the Blazers to tie it at 97-97 with 42.3 seconds to go. Cousins made a pair of free throws to give the Kings back a 99-97 lead with 14.8 seconds left before Wright made the trey for the win.

Lillard had 19 points and 10 rebounds.

Gay also missed Tuesday night’s 107-92 loss at Oklahoma City because of a lower back strain. Guard Isaiah Thomas missed his ninth straight game because of a right quad injury.

Former Blazer Travis Outlaw got his fourth start of the season for the Kings.

The Kings appeared worn out after playing the night before and Portland pulled away in the second quarter with a 10-0 run that made it 48-35. The Blazers extended the lead to as many as 15 points and went into the break with a 56-46 lead.

But the Kings closed the gap to 68-65 on Jason Thompson’s dunk midway through the third quarter. Cousins’ hook shot got Sacramento within 70-67. But Portland responded with a 9-0 run capped by Thomas Robinson’s jumper to pull back ahead 79-67 before the quarter was over.

Sacramento had a nine-point run to narrow it to 79-77 with 10:45 left. Lillard answered with a 3-pointer for the Blazers.
