PORTLAND, Ore., Dec. 6 (UPI) -- Wesley Matthews scored 26 points for Portland and the Trail Blazers hit 31-of-36 free-throw attempts Sunday in their 100-91 win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

Leading by eight to start the fourth quarter, the Blazers saw their lead dwindle to three points, 94-91, with 1:06 left when Eric Gordon canned a pair of foul shots.

But Andre Miller, Nicolas Batum and Matthews responded with two free throws apiece down the stretch to ice the win.

Brandon Roy added 14 points, going 7-of-8 from the charity stripe, and Miller was 9-for-9 on foul shots en route to 13 points as Portland snapped a six-game losing streak.

The Clippers were led by Gordon's 24 points and Blake Griffin added 21 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in the loss.
