Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Back-to-back 3s from Brandon Boston and the Clippers are up 22-15 (3:37, 1st). – 10:28 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Brandon Boston Jr. has five quick points for the Clippers. Like that move by Ty to substitute Luke’s offensive potential for Boston, while playing the rook alongside Zubac, Morris, PG, to mitigate his defensive shortcomings. – 10:28 PM
Jay Allen @PDXjay
#Blazers have gone nearly 3 minutes without scoring during the Clippers’ current 10-0 run. LA leads 14-8 mid 1st qtr. – 10:23 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Facing a Trail Blazers roster with only a handful of healthy players has been, so far, just what a sputtering Clippers offense has needed. 10-0 LAC run to lead 14-8. Clippers 6-8 shooting. – 10:21 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers are on a 10-0 run, and Jusuf Nurkic (scorer of first two Portland field goals) is in foul trouble.
14-8 Clippers lead through first 5 minutes of tonight’s game – 10:21 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Nurk picks up two fouls — one on each end — in under a minute and that’ll bring in Cody Zeller early in the first quarter – 10:19 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Surprised they didn’t review this last Nurkic offensive foul. Caught Morris right in the face with an elbow. Wonder if league will upgrade to a flagrant-1 when they look at the tape tomorrow; replay looked … not great. – 10:17 PM
Sean Highkin @highkin
Norman Powell just threw his mask on the floor three minutes into the game. Going without. – 10:16 PM
Jay Allen @PDXjay
Nurk starts out 3-3…has the #Blazers first 6 points of the night. – 10:14 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Gotta love the deflated reaction that happens when the pre-game hype video is immediately followed by the home team introducing Tony Snell and Dennis Smith Jr as the starting backcourt. Feels like there ought to be a seven-syllable German word for this. – 10:11 PM
Los Angeles Clippers @LAClippers
Pregame with PG.

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Khris Middleton just ran the Tony Snell play with Pat Connaughton.
That’s where things have progressed this season. – 9:48 PM
Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
Joel Embiid was as dominant as he has been all season on Monday, and the Sixers escaped with a win over Charlotte as a result.
Plus, a quick update within on today’s Portland-related rumors: phillyvoice.com/sixers-hornets…9:43 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
This will be the first time all season that either Mann or Kennard will start a game.
That means tonight’s second unit will be: Bledsoe, Boston, Mann, Ibaka, Hartenstein.
Tonight would be a good time for Boston to get his catch and shoot game going. – 9:36 PM

Clippers break up the Terance Mann-Luke Kennard combo, start Jackson, Kennard, George, Morris, Zubac.
Looks like CJ McCollum is out tonight with Portland starting Dennis Smith Jr., Norman Powell, Tony Snell, Robert Covington, Jusuf Nurkic. – 9:34 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Tyronn Lue on matchup 4 of Clippers-Trail Blazers:
“Whichever team had the defensive presence and the defensive mindset to start the game won those games.” – 8:58 PM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Ty Lue on Bledsoe’s reaction to coming off the bench: “He was great, he’s professional, he wants to win. Said, ‘Whatever you want to do, Coach, I’m on board.’ ” – 8:35 PM
Jay Allen @PDXjay
CJ McCollum (rib contusion) has been downgraded from probable to doubtful for tonight’s game against the Clippers. #Blazers8:34 PM
Sean Highkin @highkin
Blazers just downgraded CJ from probable to doubtful – 8:33 PM
Jay Allen @PDXjay
Nassir Little (sprained left ankle) will miss his fourth straight game tonight. Was listed as questionable on the Injury Report. – 8:28 PM
Jay Allen @PDXjay
Damian Lillard (abdominal tendinopathy–injury management) is out tonight against the Clippers, but he is going through a pregame warmup here at Moda Center. Getting some threes up at the moment. – 8:27 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Chauncey Billups says that he “hopes” CJ McCollum (rib) plays tonight, but that he’s not sure. – 8:24 PM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Billups: “We’re hoping CJ plays, but right now we’re not sure.” Also notes, it’s hard playing with Dame and Ant, who both will be out. – 8:24 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Back here in Portlandia, where the Blazers and Clippers will meet for the 17th time this season. pic.twitter.com/T13fJze2UQ8:19 PM

Casey Holdahl @CHold
Anfernee Simons is out for tonight’s game with a right ankle sprain, though he is going through a workout pregame. Wasn’t the case (as far as I know) before the Boston game. – 8:01 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
I expect Portland to come out and play with an attitude tonight.
145 American points allowed Saturday against the Celtics.
Look at this man Payton Pritchard. Came back to the state of Oregon and treated garbage time like it was @portlandproam 💀💀💀💀 pic.twitter.com/IoxOkVhzju7:34 PM

#Suns next three:
Today vs. #Spurs (w/o Devin Booker: hamstring).
Friday vs. #Celtics.
Monday at #Clippers.
Toughest: Spurs. Won 4 straight, beat Warriors. 5-1 since Suns loss.
Easiest: Clippers. Rematch of WCF Suns won in 6.
Prediction: 2-1.

A trade package built around CJ McCollum for Ben Simmons makes perfect sense for the Trail Blazers: pic.twitter.com/3oAUycSy7M5:01 PM

Mark Murphy @Murf56
C’s continue to list Jaylen Brown as questionable heading into Lakers/Clippers swing. Udoka: “See how he feels after going harder today than he has in awhile, since he played in the games. Big picture approach, being cautious with it and getting him back at 100, not 85, 90.” – 4:45 PM
Ben Golliver @BenGolliver
Column: Paul Allen’s Blazers have collapsed piece by piece. Jody Allen’s Blazers stand at the crossroads, staring at the possibility of a lost season when they can least afford it @PostSports https://t.co/KHm1F6cgD2 pic.twitter.com/ZVdnyHzng54:43 PM
