Gary Trent Jr. scored 28 points off the bench while CJ McCollum continued his hot streak delivering a double-double of 20 points and 11 assists.
Two other Blazers also reached that benchmark as Jusuf Nurkic netted 10 points and 12 rebounds while Enes Kanter registered 12 points and 14 rebounds.
Carmelo Anthony and Nassir Little have been out dealing with the COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Neither played n the match versus the Lakers and are listed as questionable for Wednesday.
Zach Collins underwent offseason ankle surgery and is slated to make his return in late January.
Los Angeles Clippers
After the most embarrassing and statistically bad loss of the Clippers franchise history, they returned to the hardcourt on Tuesday to make amends.
Once again, Kawhi Leonard was not in the lineup after taking eight stitches for an inadvertent elbow from teammate Serge Ibaka.
Seven Clippers scored in double-figures with perennial Sixth Man, Lou Williams leading the way scoring 20 points. Paul George followed up his post game “I guess the game was too close to Christmas” comments after the loss to the Mavericks with an 18 point, six rebounds, five assists, and two blocks.
Ibaka (16), Luke Kennard (15), Patrick Beverley (12), Ivica Zubac (12), Reggie Jackson (11) were the other double-figure contributors.
Marcus Morris Sr. has practiced with the team but hasn’t appeared in any games yet. Leonard was out for the second consecutive game with both listed as questionable for Wednesday.
Jay Scrubb is out indefinitely recovering from foot surgery

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction:
This match has all sorts of exciting dramatic implications considering what happened in the Orlando bubble. Despite not having any titles PatBev loves to chirp. When Lillard missed a free throw in Orlando that cost Portland the game he and Morris rolled around laughing on the bench. Post-game the trolling continued with Paul George getting in on the action.
So when the Clippers choked losing a series they led by 3-1 to the Nuggets, Lillard and CJ McCollum made sure to take advantage by trolling the Clippers on social media.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Blazers +5.5
As good as the Clippers have shown they can be — the one player in the NBA you shouldn’t want to tick off is Lillard who’ll no doubt be inspired to show Pat Bev precisely what he thinks of him.
I don’t just like the Blazers to cover the spread – I like them to win outright and for Lillard to have a huge game.
