The Portland Trail Blazers (3-1) continue its four-game homestand on Thursday night with a game against the Los Angeles Clippers (3-0).

Portland won its home opener on Tuesday after beating the New Orleans Pelicans 103-93.  It was a rough shooting night for Damain Lillard, who missed his first nine shots. Lillard finished the game with 13 points.  He went 3-of-16 from the field.  It was CJ McCollum who scored 16 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter to help the Trail Blazers pull away and secure the victory. 

In Tuesday’s win, the Blazers’ bench combined to score 43 points, led by Evan Turner’s 13 points and Ed Davis’ 12 points.  Davis also pulled down 10 rebounds to earn his 50th double-double of his career.

The Clippers have started the season winning their first three games.  Los Angeles’ most recent win came on Tuesday night with a 102-84 victory over the Utah Jazz. Blake Griffin led the way with 24 points, while DeAndre Jordan recorded a double-double, 23 points and 18 rebounds.

 

For the Blazers, Noah Vonleh (right shoulder) is listed as out for Thursday’s contest and Meyers Leonard (right ankle) has been listed as doubtful.  The Clippers will be without Milos Teodosic (plantar fascia in left foot).

Last season the L.A. swept Portland in a three-game season series.
