    导出博客文章LOS ANGELES -- J. Cheap Robert Williams Jersey .J. Redick came through at the free-throw line in the closing seconds to help the Los Angeles Clippers pull out a win in a game that saw the teams trade leads until the final minutes.Blake Griffin had 26 points and 12 rebounds, Chris Paul had 21 points and 14 assists, and the Clippers held off the Portland Trail Blazers 121-120 Monday night to sweep the three-game season series.Redick finished with 19 points, hitting all eight of his free throws -- including three in the final seconds to push Los Angeles lead to four points.Portlands Damian Lillard hit a 3-pointer with 1.7 seconds left for the final margin.It was an up-and-down game, back and forth, Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. Each team made not big runs, but little runs and that was kind of the ebb and flow of the game.The final minutes saw Clippers center DeAndre Jordan and Blazers forward Evan Turner ejected. Portland center Mason Plumlee was hit with a technical after he elbowed Griffin on a drive in his face, causing a cut on his upper lip that needed three stitches after the game.That only highlighted what was a roughly played game throughout.Im sure there is no love lost, Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. We play each other a lot and whenever you play each other a lot it seems like you get testy. We dont really care if you like us or not.Paul was also charged with a flagrant foul.Its just competition, Paul said. Guys out there fighting and trying to get a win and stuff happens.Paul hit a three-pointer with just over 2 minutes to play, and later added a pair of free throws to give the Clippers a 118-113 lead with 18 seconds to play.But the Blazers responded again, Lillard hit a pair of free throws himself. After Lillards last 3 the Clippers ran out the clock.It was probably our most competitive game of the year, Stotts said. It was a tough loss but I like the way we competed throughout the game. We got down and came back. It was a very good effort.C.J. McCollum had 25 points and Lillard finished with 24 points and eight assists for the Trail Blazers, who lost their fourth straight -- all on the road.The way we played tonight is the way were supposed to play, Lillard said. This is what gives us our best chance against good teams, like they are. Its what weve kind of been missing on a consistent basis. We did a good job but lost the game. We want to win.The Clippers acted like they were going to dominate early, jumping out to a 38-27 lead at the end of the first quarter. They connected on 14 of 22 field goals (63.6 percent), came up with four blocked shots and outscored Portland 14-4 to close the quarter.But Portland charged back in the second, opening with a 13-2 run and then just kept rolling. The Blazers outscored the Clippers 33-18 in the second quarter to take a 60-56 lead at the half.I thought we did a great job early being an aggressor and then somewhere we lost it, but down the stretch the guys made plays, Griffin said.A PLUM ADDITIONThe 6-11 Plumlee had a strong game, finishing with 18 points, seven rebounds and five blocked shots.TECHNICAL AFFAIRStotts also picked up a technical when he objected to foul called against McCollum on a three-point attempt with 4:14 left. Redick hit all four free throws.No comment, was all Stotts offered.TIP-INSTrail Blazers: F Al-Farouq Aminu (back contusion) was called a game-time decision, but started against the Clippers. ... Lillard scored a team-record 695 points in the Blazers first 25 games, eclipsing Clyde Drexlers previous mark of 681 in 1988.Clippers: Backup PG Austin Rivers is undergoing NBA concussion protocol and missed Mondays contest. ... Monday marked the Clippers 247th consecutive sellout at Staples Center. ... G Raymond Felton returned to the team after missing the past two games to attend his grandmothers funeral.UP NEXTTrail Blazers: Host Oklahoma City on Tuesday night.Clippers: At Orlando on Wednesday night. Cheap Bill Russell Jersey . Now that hes hitting streaking teammates with pin-point passes for easy layups, Love is asserting himself as one of the true superstars in the league. Cheap Boston Celtics Jerseys . JOHNS, N. . The news was first reported on Gonzalezs Twitter account and confirmed by the Rockies. Gonzalez has a six-week window before position players have their first workout at spring training in Arizona. If Kevin Ollie can find a silver lining in Friday nights opening loss to Wagner, its that his young team may well have learned a valuable lesson at the right time.Weve got to step back and go back to the drawing board and figure it out, Ollie said after his No. 18 Huskies were stunned by the visitors from Staten Island -- and the Northeast Conference. This is a dark time right now, but its going to a period after this where we say we got better from it.Another good thing for UConn is getting right back at it, which the Huskies will do when they host Northeastern Monday night.Weve got to get tougher, Ollie said. Our two toughest guys were our two smallest guys out there. Thats (freshmen) C.V. (Christian Vital) and Al (Gilbert). Weve got to get tougher and that starts with me as a coach. Ive got to get these guys ready to play. I take full responsibility and I will do that.Northeastern topped local rival Boston University 87-77 Friday night, with senior guard T.J. Williams scoring a career-high 30 points, dishing out eight assists and grabbing four rebounds -- and graduate senior transfer Alex Murphy scoring 20 points in the opener of his sixth college season.While THOSE Huskies have youth, the experience of the two opening night stars is similar to what Wagner brought to Storrs to snap UConns 27-game Storrs opening game winning streak.We did have a 12-0 run to tie it (in the second half), but they hit a three and every time they needed a bucket they made some big-time plays, said Ollie. Thats what a veteran-laden team does.Northeastern, out of Colonial Conference, was put on the map by Jim Calhoun, who moved from those Huskies to the UConn Huskies and did pretty well there. Cheap Celtics Jerseys. Northeastern was picked to finish seventh in the Colonial. But Friday night, Williams became the first Northeastern player to score 30 in an opener since the late Reggie Lewis scored 32 at the Great Alaska Shootout -- against No. 2 Louisville -- in a win in 1986.That was Calhouns first year at UConn.We lost a lot of experience over the last two years, Northeastern coach Bill Coen said after Friday nights win.Murphy, who previously attended Duke and Florida, missed all last season because of injury and was granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA -- taking it at Northeastern.Clearly, the level of competition rises for Northeastern Monday night -- especially considering UConn already learned the lesson of perhaps overlooking an unheralded opponent.Transfer Terry Larrier was a bright spot for UConn in his debut, scoring 19 points and grabbing seven rebounds.He played well for us, said Ollie. He was a real bright spot for us. He played very, very well for us, played with a lot of heart and played with pure heart.After Monday nights game, UConn, which likely cost itself a spot in the rankings, heads west. They visit Los Angeles, Ollies hometown, to play Loyola Marymount -- and then across the Pacific to play in the Maui Invitational. They face Oklahoma State in the tourney opener Nov. 21.
