The Portland Trail Blazers had a four-day break for the Christmas holiday, so it’s only fair that their first game back at the Moda Center would be a 116-112 overtime victory against the Clippers in front of a sellout crowd of 20,053 Thursday night.

“Another good win for us, obviously against an elite team in the West,” said Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts. “We keep finding ways to win games, making clutch shots, getting stops. (We) make it interesting at times, but thought it was a terrific game and glad to get a win.”

Portland is now 5-1 against other 20-win teams and are 9-1 in their last 10 overtime games.

It looked at numerous times throughout the game that the Trail Blazers might pull away from the Clippers, a team playing on the second night of a back-to-back. But Portland, despite leading at one point by as many as 12, never found a way to put the Clippers away, resulting in yet another heart-pounding finish at the Moda Center.
