Clippers hold off Trail Blazers for first Summer League win


Posted Friday July 16, 2010 12:30AM

The Los Angeles Clippers held off Portland's late run in the fourth quarter Thursday to earn their first victory of the 2010 NBA Summer League with a 72-71 triumph over the Blazers in the final game of the night at COX Pavilion on the campus of UNLV.

Four Clippers scored in double figures. Marqus Blakely led the way with 14, Al-Farouq Aminu added 13, DeAndre Jordan had 12 and a game-high 11 rebounds and Terry Johnson chipped in 11. Five finished in double figures for the Blazers, with Dante Cunningham's 17 leading the way.

The Clippers fired on all cylinders in the first, jumping out to a 10-0 lead. The Blazers fought back with a 9-0 run sparked by Patrick Mills' 3-pointer. The Blazers pulled even at 13-13 with 2:41 left in the quarter. The two teams traded baskets for the remainder of the quarter before the Clippers finished the frame with a 19-17 lead.

After being held scoreless in the first two minutes of the second, the Clippers went on a 26-6 run to secure a 43-29 halftime lead. The Clippers' second-quarter effort was led by Aminu's 10 points while Willie Warren added six off the bench.

The Clippers increased their lead to 20 in the third. Following a timeout, the Blazers finished the quarter with a 17-7 run on the backs of Cunningham (six in the quarter) and Luke Babbitt (five). The Clippers ended the third with a 59-52 lead.

The Blazers mounted a comeback in the fourth, outscoring the Clippers 15-3 to grab a two-point lead at the 4:12 mark -- Portland's first lead since early in the second when it led 23-22.

Both teams will return to Summer League action on Saturday, the Clippers hosting the Spurs at 5:00 p.m. PT followed by the Blazers, who will take on the Timberwolves at 7:00 p.m. PT in the final game in COX Pavilion that evening.
