J.J. Hickson had 29 points and 13 rebounds in his first start for the Portland Trail Blazers, but it was not enough to close out the Los Angeles Clippers. Replacing All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge who was out with an elbow injury, Hickson dominated the game, scoring and dunking on the Clippers, including this posterizing dunk on DeAndre Jordan. Down by 1 with 5 seconds remaining in the game, Wesley Matthews missed the layup while being fouled, but there was no call, and the Blazers lost to the Clippers 97-98. Nicolas Batum scored 18 points and Jamal Crawford added 14 points off the bench in the loss.
