LOS ANGELES (AP) -

Damian Lillard scored 28 points and the Portland Trail Blazers pulled away in the third quarter to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 104-96 on Tuesday night.

Los Angeles was playing its first game since Blake Griffin's stunning trade to Detroit on Monday.

CJ McCollum added 16 points and Jusuf Nurkic had 14 points and 18 rebounds for the Blazers, who ended a seven-game skid against the Clippers while winning their third in a row.

Lou Williams scored 20 points off the bench and DeAndre Jordan had 19 rebounds for the Clippers, who made a run in the fourth after they trailed by 20.

Montrezl Harrell scored 11 of his 15 points early in the period and then Los Angeles scored 10 straight points to get to 100-94.

But the Clippers were limited to one field goal in the final 2 minutes.

After a close first half, the Blazers outscored the Clippers 30-16 in the third. Lillard had nine points, and Nurkic and ex-Clippers Al-Farouq Aminu had six points each.
