PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Damon Stoudamire scored 22 points Friday night and Portland came from behind in the fourth quarter to down the Los Angeles Clippers, 90-86.

Portland played without Darius Miles, who was suspended earlier in the day by Coach Maurice Cheeks after the two had a confrontation earlier in the week.

The Trail Blazers trailed by three entering the fourth quarter, but Stoudamire paced a rally by finishing off an 18-point second half.

The Clippers were led by Elton Brand with 26 points.
