Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Clippers put on their best show in years, and it was almost undone by a pair of 3-pointers.

Jeff McInnis scored seven of his 23 points in double overtime and finished with 10 assists as the Clippers outlasted the Portland Trail Blazers, 123-120, for their first four-game winning streak since the 1996-97 season.

McInnis hit a 16-foot jumper to start the second overtime, but Portland ran off six straight points to take a 120-116 lead with 1:49 to go. But McInnis had a three-point play and Eric Piatkowski made two foul shots to put Los Angeles in front, 121-120.

"I just wanted to be aggressive." McInnis said. "I knew my team needed me, I was able to make a big shot."

McInnis sank two free throws with 3.1 seconds left to cap the scoring.

Steve Smith, smothered on the left wing, turned to face the basket but missed a desperation 3-pointer and a chance to force a third overtime.

Los Angeles had an 18-point lead in the fourth quarter, until Portland chipped away and tied the game with 0.01 seconds to play.

Although the playoffs are out of the question, the young Clippers continue to play hard and surprise the leagues best teams, playing their 10th overtime of the season and third of the week.

"It's an emotional win for us," Clipper coach Alvin Gentry said. "Our team is great. I was ecstatic with the way we hung in there. I was just proud of the guys."

Michael Olowokandi scored a season-high 24 points to lead six Clippers in double figures, adding nine rebounds and three blocked shots. Los Angeles shot 51 percent (45-of-88) from the field and defeated Portland twice in one season for the first time since 1995-96.

The Clippers appeared headed to a more conventional victory, but Damon Stoudamire split Darius Milea and McInnis, double-pumped and launched an off-balance 3-pointer from beyond the top of the key to tie it at 101-101 and force overtime.

Down by six points with 3:05 to play in the first extra session, Piatkowski sandwiched 3-pointers around a short jumper to get Los Angeles within 111-109 with 1:43 left. Corey Maggette converted a three-point play to put the Clippers ahead and nailed a leaner over Rasheed Wallace to make it 114-111.

"We need to learn how to keep the lead," Piatkowski said. "There's no reason for us to give these teams an opportunity to get back into the game. It felt good. We have a lot of talent and we're learning how to play together."

After Portland used two timeouts, Wallace was left open at the top of the key and drilled a 3-pointer to tie it with seven seconds remaining. Maggette's prayer at the buzzer hit the front rim and forced a second overtime.

Wallace scored 35 points for the Blazers, who shot 48.5 percent (47-of-97) but lost for the third time in four games.

After trading baskets with Los Angeles, the Trail Blazers scored just eight points in the third quarter, tying a Clipper franchise record.

"Obviously, it's a disappointing loss," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "We just didn't play well for three quarters and when you do that, it gets tough."

Los Angeles finished with third quarter on a 14-0 run to take a 74-58 lead. McInnis had 11 points in the quarter and lifted the fans out of their seats after he scored six straight points to end the period.

"We're just digging a hole for ourselves," Stoudamire said. "Samee time last two years I've been here. The same thing. It's not coming to play everyday. When you're a team the caliber of ours, you have to come to play every single night and you've got to start from when the ball goes up."

McInnis nailed a runner to start a string of eight straight points. Olowokandi hit an 18-footer before Maggette made one of two free throws. The crowd gave the scrappy Clippers a roaring ovation for holding Portland to 0-for-8 shooting and four turnovers to the 2:49 mark.

It was the team's fifth sellout of the year as the crowd of 20,001 was as loud as if the defending champions were playing.

"It's nice to see the crowd sticking behind us and coming out," Piatkowski said. "It was a full house and they were enjoying the game. That helped us have a good time."

Portland was held scoreless for a span of 9:27 between the third and fourth quarters. After Stoudamire hit a jumper with 8:11 to play in the third, the team's next point did not come until Wallace hit the first of a pair of free throws to cut the deficit to 17 points with 10:33 left in regulation.

The Blazers were outscored 23-8 in the third, but roared back to score 43 in the fourth. They connected on six 3-pointers in the final period, to finish 10-of-22 from behind the arc.
