Rose Garden, Portland, 7:30pm
The Clippers come off their most impressive win of the young season with a visit to always-dangerous Portland to face the Trailblazers. Though most experts picked the Blazers (currently 2-2) to contend for a lottery pick, two wins against the Lakers and Rockets, as well as two decent efforts against the Thunder and Mavs, has proven them to be formidable – especially at home. Portland rookie point guard Damian Lillard is second on the team in scoring, averaging 19.3 points per game, with forward LaMarcus Aldridge averaging 22 points and nine rebounds per game. Nicolas Batum brings 15 ppg. The Clippers are led by Jamal Crawford (21ppg), Blake Griffin and Chris Paul with 17ppg each.
