(AP Photo/Steve Dykes)ExpandPORTLAND, Ore. — The Clippers remain desperate to make the playoffs, but the problem is they don’t always play that way from the opening tip.“If you’re desperate to get wins like we are to extend our season and play in the postseason like we are, we’ve got to have a sense of urgency from the start of the game,” Clippers center DeAndre Jordan said.Portland’s Jusuf Nurkic and Damian Lillard had no such problem on Friday night. Nurkic had 21 points and 12 rebounds, Lillard added 17 points and 11 assists, and the Trail Blazers held off the Clippers 105-96 on Friday night.“We understand each other,” Nurkic said. “Every possession, we already know where we’re going to be and how we’re going to play. When we look at each other we already know what we’re going to do.” The first half was a highlight reel of dunks for the Blazers, who led 64-49 at the break.Portland coach Terry Stotts sees the connection between Nurkic and Lillard that Nurkic spoke of too.“I thought Damian was terrific with his passing. He found Nurk. They kept trapping him and he found Nurk almost every time,” Stotts said. “Someone asked me before the game about getting Nurk more shots. I think Dame is responsible for getting Nurk some shots.”Rookie Zach Collins came off the bench with a career-high 15 points for the Blazers, who were hurt in the third quarter when Ed Davis rolled his right ankle and left the game.Portland remains in third place in the West, coming off a 2-1 road trip that ended with a 108-103 loss at Memphis on Wednesday night. But the Blazers played that game without Lillard, who was awaiting the birth of his first child. Damian Lillard Jr. was born Thursday morning.“I don’t think there’s any way to describe it. It’s a different level, different type of excitement. It was my son looking into my eyes. It was different,” Lillard said Friday.But his joy was tempered because his half-brother was shot multiple times in the parking lot of a Portland-area shopping mall on Thursday night. Lillard said 20-year-old Jahrell Lillard was in stable condition. Police continue to look for the suspects.“I just tried to go out there and have fun, clear my mind. I didn’t want to drag my personal things into the locker room or on to the court,” Lillard said. “I had a son, that’s a great thing. It was an unfortunate thing with my brother but he survived it, so a lot to be thankful for.”Collins had three dunks in the second quarter to finish the first half with 13 points, topping his career high for a game. The Blazers had 17 assists in the first half.Al-Farouq Aminu’s layup and free throw put Portland up 74-51 early in the second half. But Davis headed to the locker room later in the third quarter. The Blazers said after the game that X-rays on the ankle were negative.Portland was already playing without starter Maurice Harkless, who had a minor procedure on his left knee on Wednesday and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.TIP-INSClippers: L.A. had won three straight in Portland. … Austin Rivers struggled, going 1 for 8 from the floor.Trail Blazers: A reporter quipped that Lillard’s newborn son had a stack of his signature shoes waiting for him. “Nothing but the finest,” Lillard laughed. … Portland had 30 assists, matching it season high.UP NEXTClippers: Host the Indiana Pacers on Sunday.Trail Blazers: Host the Grizzlies on Sunday. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the Clippers, who are just outside the playoff picture in the West with six games left. Lou Williams led the Clippers with 23 points.After trailing by as many as 23 points in the third quarter, the Clippers got within 92-80 early in the fourth, prompting Lillard to return to the game. The Clippers narrowed the gap again to 102-94 with just under a minute left but Pat Connaughton answered for the Blazers with a 3-pointer on the other end.The Clippers were short-handed. The team announced earlier Friday that Milos Teodosic has a torn plantar fascia in his left foot and will be re-evaluated in two weeks. Already missing were Avery Bradley (abdominal surgery) and Patrick Beverley (knee).But the Clippers saw the return of Danilo Gallinari, who had missed 18 games with a fractured right hand. Gallinari finished with 11 points.“I just thought Portland was the better team. I thought they were better coached, I thought the players played better, I thought they played harder. And that’s disappointing,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Luke Walton defends Lonzo Ball from those who said he got ‘destroyed’ in debut

first_img Clippers’ Patrick Beverley gives rude welcome to Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball That doesn’t even include the Nov. 2 matchup with D’Angelo Russell, who will no doubt be looking to prove the Lakers erred in trading him.Not that Ball should be looking that far ahead.“We want him to stay more present in the moment,” Walton said. “He’s got more on his plate than to try to get him to wrap his head around the list of point guards he’s got coming in.”But they are still coming.“It’s always someone, especially in the starting lineup, that’s really darn good at something,” Walton said. “He’ll have his work cut out for him each night, but each night will be a unique – especially the first time through (the schedule) – will be a unique learning opportunity for him.”INACTIVE: ZUBACFor the second straight game, Ivica Zubac was on the bench in street clothes. The Lakers’ second-round pick in 2016, Zubac started 11 games last season and was often included in conversations about the organization’s cherished young core.In his second season, however, he hasn’t been a factor.Walton said it has been a “numbers thing” that kept Zubac on the inactive list. With Ball coming off a sprained ankle and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope suspended for the first two games of the season, it was more important to Walton to have guard depth. So Josh Hart and Alex Caruso have remained active.Zubac struggled in summer league, and has acknowledged that he thought it would be easier given his experience in the NBA.“I’ve talked to him since then and he has changed his attitude and preparation and changed his body since summer league,” Walton said. “He has got to be more aggressive in the way he attacks the ball, but he is coming along nicely.”The other player joining Zubac on the inactive list Friday was something of a surprise. Veteran Luol Deng, who started Thursday night’s opener. Against the Clippers he scored just two points in 13 minutes.Against Phoenix, Walton said he wanted “more natural energy,” which led him to start Corey Brewer instead of Deng. PHOENIX — By Friday, the Lakers were onto the Phoenix Suns and Lonzo Ball had shifted his focus to Eric Bledsoe.Beyond the walls of the visitors’ locker room at Talking Stick Resort Arena, however, the news cycle was stuck on Ball’s professional debut the night before and a perception that the No. 2 overall draft pick had flopped.Coach Luke Walton heard those opinions and came to his young point guard’s defense ahead of the Friday’s game.Related Articles Magic Johnson passes torch, but Lonzo Ball era begins with lopsided loss to Clippers Miller: Lonzo Ball, Lakers open new era amid turbo-charged hype Do the Lakers have a Julius Randle problem? AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersBall tallied nine rebounds and four assists, but the Lakers shot just 40 percent from the floor.“We didn’t make any shots,” Walton said. “He’ll figure out when to get his shots. I thought he was fine last night. It’s a good learning experience for everybody.”Ball was relentlessly hounded by Clippers point guard Patrick Beverley, who acknowledged after the game that he wanted to send a message to Ball and his boisterous father, LaVar. Beverley remained combative, screaming profanities aimed at Ball after the game had ended, something Walton said did not surprise him.“He’s a hard-nosed player and he has success by getting into people and getting under their skin,” Walton said. “He sees a rookie point guard out there. That’s exactly what he’s going to try to do.”The opposing point guards won’t get any less daunting. After facing Bledsoe on Friday, the list of his upcoming matchups is a veritable gauntlet of talent and tenacity. In order: Jrue Holiday, John Wall, Kyle Lowry, Ricky Rubio, soon followed by Damian Lillard, Mike Conley,  Kyrie Irving, Wall again, and reigning Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon. “I think Lonzo’s getting a bad (rap) for getting destroyed his first game,” Walton said. “Personally, I thought he could have had a double-double with rebounds and assists.
