IN PHOTOS: Blazers' Clip job


Ho-hum? Not exactly.

Predictable? Getting to be.

Looking familiar? Very much so.

That describes the Trail Blazers' performance and the outcome Thursday night at Moda Center, where Portland rallied to take the Los Angeles Clippers to overtime and then beat the visitors 116-112.

Portland retained the best record in the NBA, moving to 24-5, with defending league champion Miami due to visit Saturday night.
