Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers can thank one Staples Center co-tenant for helping them avoid a meeting with another. Lamar Odom collected 24 points and 13 rebounds and Lamar Odom added 18 and 11 as the Clippers pulled away from the Trail Blazers for a 107-93 victory. By virtue of the defeat, Portland avoided a playoff matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers - a team it has lost to five times in the previous six postseasons. The three-time defending champion Lakers swept the Blazers in the first round the last two years. The sixth-seeded Blazers (50-32) will play third-seeded Dallas, which shared the best record in the NBA with San Antonio. The Lakers gained the fifth seed and a matchup against fourth-seeded Minnesota due to a superior conference record (33-19 vs. 29-23). "I don't know if it's a better matchup or a worse matchup," Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks said. "Dallas has got guys that can play. We'll have our work cut out for us. We need to work and defend." "We could have put ourselves in a series with Minnesota," said Portland guard Jeff McInnis, a former Clipper. "Personally, as a point guard, I look at my position and who I'm going to be playing. (Dallas' Steve) Nash and (Nick) Van Exel are more between guards. We felt with (Minnesota's) Troy Hudson and Rod Strickland, we could have done some damage in the backcourt harassing those guys." The Blazers knew they would not be able to secure fourth place and home-court advantage in the first round when Minnesota beat Memphis earlier in the night. "It wasn't like we were going to get anything out of this game once we'd seen Minnesota had won," Blazers guard Scottie Pippen said. "I don't have a preference who we play. You don't have a preference when you've played yourself out of home-court advantage." Andre Miller scored 19 points and reserve Keyon Dooling 16 for the Clippers, who took the lead for good, 73-72, on a jumper by Odom with 53 seconds left in the third quarter. The Clippers, who finished at 27-55 and have several key personnel decisions to make in the offseason, took a 77-72 edge into the fourth quarter and extended it to as many as 17 points down the stretch. "I told the guys that if they understand what winning is about, then they'll start winning," said Clippers coach Dennis Johnson, who took over the team after Alvin Gentry was fired in mid-season. "It takes a long time to change things around. I told the guys that I was proud of them because when I stepped in and took over, they didn't miss a beat." "DJ did a great job just getting us to come together on the same page," Odom said of Johnson. "We just needed a guy that could bring 12 guys together. That's what we needed all year. Hopefully this won't be the last time." Bonzi Wells scored 19 points and Rasheed Wallace added 15 and nine rebounds for Portland, which shot just 42 percent (37-of-89) and allowed the Clippers to connect on 56 percent (44-of-78). "They played street ball tonight," McInnis said. "They didn't have anything to play for. They're going home tonight. They were all talking trash to me, but most of them wished me luck in the playoffs." Pippen, who was playing in his second game since being activated off the injured list with a swollen left knee, scored just three points on 1-of-9 shooting. "Coach just wanted me to play through it and shake off some of the rust," Pippen said. "It was the kind of game we wanted to win but it was more important that we get something out of it." "We've gone through a lot this year, a lot of distractions," said Portland forward Ruben Patterson, who suffered a broken left eye socket when he was punched by teammate Zach Randolph in practice two weeks ago. "I think it's going to be like the All-Star break and we'll come together. I can't wait to get it started."
