Los Angeles Clippers v Portland Trail Blazers Live
Struggling to stay above the .500 mark, the Blazers have yet to find a way to cope with the loss of franchise centerpiece Brandon Roy due to yet another knee injury. Hoping to get a lift from their home-crowd, LaMarcus Aldridge and the Portland Trail Blazers will face the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday at 3:30 a.m. GMT.
Even though the Clippers once again got off to an extremely poor start into the season, the young team from California has been playing much better basketball in the past few weeks. More precisely, L.A. won 10 of its last 14 games and is slowly climbing up the standings in the Western Conference. One key to success has been rookie of the year candidate Blake Griffin who is dominating opponents in the low-post area. In fact, Griffin has been averaging no less than 21.9 points, 12.7 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 37 minutes per contest so far. Likewise, shooting guard Eric Gordon and center DeAndre Jordan look like two very promising young players and could lead the franchise back to the post-season in the not too distant feature. Either way, fans around the league can look forward to watching some entertaining up-tempo basketball when the Blazers are at Staples Center on Friday night.

Even though the Blazers were hoping to compete for a championship last year, the team ultimately failed to deliver after a series of unfortunate injuries. With everyone back on the court, Brandon Roy and the Portland Trail Blazers are looking to get back on track when they take on the Los Angeles Clippers at Rose Garden on Wednesday at 2 a.m. GMT.
Like the Blazers, the Clippers were also slowed down by injuries in 2009-10 as they once again failed to reach the post-season. However, with former number one overall pick Blake Griffin finally making his NBA debut, Los Angeles can be expected to post a better record in the upcoming season. Especially the Clippers' front-court is extremely potent as both Chris Kaman as well as Blake Griffin could turn out to be among the best big men in the league. Likewise, shooting guard Eric Gordon has shown that he could become an All-Star in the not too distant future if he continues to elevate his level of play. Nonetheless, Portland will enter its encounter with the Clippers as everyone's favorites to clinch a victory on Wednesday night. Ultimately, Brandon Roy and company are the much deeper overall team and have shown countless times that they can perform at both ends of the floor.
