The Los Angeles Clippers tip off against the Portland Trail Blazers, and this one might even be a Western Conference playoff preview.

Blake Griffin just seems to rub other power forwards the wrong way doesn’t he? His ejection from the latest game after a rebounding altercation was just one example of this, but there are many others that can be cited.

Here is the TV info for that one that starts at 10:35 PM EST, and shooting guard J.J. Redick is still out with injury.

Doc Rivers did not like his team’s demeanour in the crucial moments.

“We were kicking their butt, and then they went to something else, to be honest,” Rivers said after the close loss. “But that’s fine. We have to have better composure and just keep playing. There’s no doubt about that. But I thought in the basketball part of it, we were showing them pretty well. All the other stuff, it worked in their favor. So it was a smart thing for them to do.”

The Blazers are favored (-4.5), and might go with the Clippers to cover the spread and possibly even win.
