The Blazers went 1-3 against the Clippers in the regular season. They began the season series with a 102-91 victory on Nov. 20.They lost a couple of days later in Los Angeles, 102-87, when DeAndre Jordan set a franchise record 34 free-throw attempts. The third match-up was the most eventful but it wasn’t competitive as a clerical error left CJ McCollum on the inactive list for the game on Jan. 6, 109-98. The Clippers won 96-94 in the most recent meeting in Los Angeles on a JJ Redick buzzer-beater on Mar. 24.
The Blazers see the Clippers as a good playoff match-up and most everybody else does too. Before the game, I met up with former Blazer Will Barton and he told me that he thinks the Blazers should give the Clippers “everything they can handle.”
The Blazers defeated the Nuggets 107-99 Sunday in their season finale.
