LOS ANGELES -- The Clippers and Trail Blazers went back and forth for 48 minutes. When it was over, Los Angeles escaped with perhaps its most satisfying victory of the season -- and Portland was saddled with its second heartbreaking loss in 48 hours. Blake Griffin scored 36 points, Chris Paul had 20 points and 12 assists, and the Clippers beat the Trail Blazers 122-117 on Wednesday night in the final game for both teams before the All-Star break. The Clippers, who set a franchise record for largest victory Sunday in their 45-point thrashing of Philadelphia, converted 16 Portland turnovers into 20 points during a nip-and-tuck affair that included 40 lead changes. "We were up one, down one, up one," Paul said. "I told them in the timeout: Fellas, we need to get a score and a stop. I told B.G. if we get a score and a stop, it changes the whole game. It was frustrating because it was me making mistakes on defence, and they were getting shots. But all in all, it was a good win for us." The Clippers won for the 14th time in 19 games since Jan. 4, when the Spurs handed them their worst loss of the season, 116-92 in San Antonio. Paul made 10 of 15 shots in his second game back after missing 18 with a separated right shoulder. "Its definitely not (100 per cent)," he said. "But as long as Im not hindering my team and my teammates, I feel I can be effective out there." Jamal Crawford added 25 points for the defending Pacific Division champions, who go into All-Star weekend 37-18 -- their second-best winning percentage at the break in franchise history. They were 39-17 last season, when they finished 56-26 and won their first division title. Los Angeles and Portland are each 5 1/2 games behind Oklahoma City for the best record in the Western Conference. "Im in a great place, as far as our team going into the break," Paul said. "Its one of the best feelings Ive had about a team since Ive been in the league, just strictly because of defence. The biggest thing with us is that everyone has bought into the defensive end. We understand that we can score every night, but its going to be our defence that carries us." LaMarcus Aldridge scored 25 points and Damian Lillard had 21 for the Blazers, who are 5-8 since a five-game winning streak last month. The loss was their fifth straight to the Clippers at Staples Center. Clippers centre DeAndre Jordan had a miserable time trying to guard Aldridge in the first quarter, as the 6-foot-11 power forward made six of seven shots -- one night after going 5 for 22 from the field and scoring 12 points in Portlands 98-95 home loss to Oklahoma City. "Its tough, especially going into the break," Lillard said. "You want to go into it with some momentum and on a good note. We played two good games, but we just werent able to pull either game out." All of Aldridges first six baskets against the Clippers came from at least 17 feet away, including a 3-pointer that gave the Blazers a 30-25 lead with 1:42 left in the period. "Its the NBA. Youre not going to completely stop somebody from scoring," Jordan said. "I think they lead the league in scoring, but we did our best job tonight and we got stops when it counted." Los Angeles then went on a 12-0 run to go ahead 37-30 with 10:50 left in the second quarter, as backup point guard Darren Collison capped the rally with a layup and two free throws. Less than 7 1/2 minutes later, Griffin outleaped 7-1 centre Meyers Leonard on a lob above the basket by Paul and finished the alley-oop for a 53-52 edge with 3:28 left in the half. "Blakes dominance is something that we need. Hes been our MVP all season long," Paul said. "I keep telling him: I dont want to stop that. I dont want to hinder that. I just want to be a part of it." NOTES: Jordan had six rebounds in 37 minutes, ending his double-digit streak at 31 games. The franchise record is 42 by Swen Nater in 1977-78. ... Portland came in averaging an NBA-best 107.7 points, and the Clippers were second with 106.7 per game. ... The Blazers are the only team in the league to have the same starting lineup in every game -- Aldridge, Lillard, Wesley Matthews, Nicolas Batum and Robin Lopez. They all scored in double figures. ... Paul, who will be playing in his seventh All-Star game, scored his 11,000th career point on a short running jumper with 5:52 remaining. His 113 double-doubles since the start of the 2010-11 season are the most by any point guard during that stretch. ... Seven of Portlands next eight games are at home, where the Blazers are 19-6.

A victory tonight would give the Sabres a second straight home-and-home sweep, both against the Atlantic Divisions top two teams. Buffalo beat Montreal last Friday and Saturday before taking the opener of this home-and-home Tuesday in Western New York. The Lightning entered the game in Buffalo on a four-game win streak and with a one-point lead over Montreal for first place. The Bolts expected to make it five straight victories on Tuesday against the Sabres, who came into the opener 18 points behind Tampa in the division standings. Instead, the Sabres picked up a 2-1 shootout victory to push their winning streak to three games. Buffalo has now won six of its last seven contests after beginning 2014-15 with a dreadful 3-13-2 mark. Jhonas Enroth loomed large for the Sabres against Tampa, stopping 26 shots in regulation and overtime before turning aside both shootout chances. Enroth has won each of Buffalos last three games and is now 4-0-1 with a 1.56 goals against average in five lifetime appearances against the Lightning. Our guys played really well in front of me, Enroth said. They didnt have too many scoring chances. Enroth was busiest in the second period, when Tampa outshot the Sabres by a 16-4 margin. Buffalo, however, held the Bolts to nine shots the rest of the way.dddddddddddd. Zemgus Girgensons tallied in regulation for the Sabres, knotting the score at 1-1 with 3:54 left. Cody Hodgson and Tyler Ennis then scored in the shootout for Buffalo. Ondrej Palat lit the lamp for Tampa over six minutes before Girgensons goal. Evgeni Nabokov made 21 saves for the Lightning, who couldnt maintain momentum from a 6-3 road win over the New York Rangers on Monday. Hodgson began the final portion of the contest by beating Nabokov on the backhand, then Palat was turned away by Enroth. Ennis effectively put the game out of reach with his successful shot, and Ryan Callahan failed on his try to send the hosts to victory. Hes a good goaltender, Lightning center Tyler Johnson said of Enroth. He made some good saves. The Sabres improved to 4-1 in shootouts, while Tampa Bay fell to 1-3. It was Buffalos second win in the last three overall meetings with the Lightning. The Sabres have claimed three of the past five encounters in Central Florida. Buffalos Drew Stafford is questionable for tonight after missing the last two games with a lower-body injury. The forward is third on the Sabres with 12 points on four goals and eight assists. Tampa will return to No. 1 goaltender Ben Bishop tonight. He is 15-3-2 on the season and boasts a 4-0-1 record and 2.31 GAA in five career games against the Sabres.
