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.
