PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Los Angeles Clippers goal in their opener was to keep the Portland Trail Blazers from making 3-pointers.The strategy worked: Portland made just four of 18 attempts from the perimeter and the Clippers came away with a 114-106 victory Thursday night.Chris Paul said the Clippers had the luxury of being able to watch Portlands opener two days before.We just saw the clinic they put on at the 3-point line, so we just tried to make it tough on them and get them inside the line, said Paul, who had 27 points.Blake Griffin also had 27 points and added 13 rebounds in what was a contentious game that had fans booing the officials after two flagrant fouls called on Portland players in the fourth quarter. Chris Paul hit a 3-pointer that gave the Clippers a 102-90 lead with 4:07 left and the crowd headed for the exits.The Clippers were the last team in the Western Conference to start the season. Portland opened at home on Tuesday with a 113-104 victory over Utah that included 13 3-pointers.Damian Lillard led the Blazers against the Clippers with 29 points and 10 rebounds before fouling out late. His layup got the Blazers to 107-102 with 35.9 seconds left but the rally fell short.I just think we grew frustrated with the way some things went, Lillard said. When were in that situation weve probably got to do a better job of controlling what we can control.The teams last met in the opening round of the playoffs last season. Portland dropped the first two games of the series, but Paul broke his right hand and Griffin reinjured his left quadriceps tendon, and the Blazers won the next four to take the series. Portland would go on to fall to the Golden State Warriors in the conference semifinals.Jamal Crawford hit a 3-pointer that capped a 16-0 run to put the Clippers up 37-27. Griffins layup extended the lead to 49-38 with less than five minutes left in the first half. Paul made a 3 to end the half and the Clippers led 58-49.The game got testy in the third quarter when DeAndre Jordan and Mason Plumlee got into a bit of a pushing match, resulting in offsetting technical fouls.Portland rallied to keep it close throughout the quarter and Allan Crabbes jumper made it 76-73, but Marreese Speights answered for the Clippers with a 3-pointer. It was tied at 82 going into the fourth quarter.Raymond Felton put the Clippers ahead 90-84 but they couldnt extend it any further until midway through the quarter when the game got chippy again and Plumlee was assessed a flagrant foul.I wont comment on the officiating, but obviously I didnt like some of the calls, Blazers coach Terry Stotts said.That shifted the momentum, and the Clippers went up 95-89. CJ McCollum was called for a flagrant on Jordan, who missed both free throws. J.J. Redick made a 3-pointer that put Los Angeles ahead 98-89.When you shoot 40 percent on the road and you have the grit to still win the game, that was pretty cool, Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.TIP INSClippers: The Clippers went after veterans in the offseason, bringing in 11-year pros Felton and Brandon Bass, eight-year pro Speights, and seven-year pro Alan Anderson. ... Los Angeles started Luc Mbah a Moute at small forward.Trail Blazers: Lillard opened the season with 39 points against the Jazz. ... Chance The Rapper was among the fans at the game. ... The Blazers made just four of 18 3-point attempts.TOGETHER: Paul, head of the NBA players union, is one of a group of players that lent their voices to an NBA video to spread a message of unity. Along with Dwyane Wade, Kyle Korver and Carmelo Anthony, the video ends with the words Theres only one way to work through our challenges -- together.The Trail Blazers have been linking arms during the national anthem for the seasons first two games.PLUMLEES GESTURE: He landed in the seats before his dustup with Jordan, startling two kids sitting courtside. After the game he brought them back to the locker room and signed a pair of jerseys for the youngsters.As for the officiating? He said it shouldnt be a distraction.If you are a mentally tough team you dont let that bother you, Plumlee said. Youve got to play through stuff.UP NEXTClippers: Host the Utah Jazz on Sunday night.Trail Blazers: At the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night. Under Armour Clutchfit Drive 2 .

Stephen Curry 1 Shoes For Sale .Y. -- Paul Byron and Matt Stajan scored as the Calgary Flames started a five-game road trip with a 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon. Heavyweight contender Lucas Browne, due to fight for a vacant world title, has failed his second random drug test of the year, likely killing his chances to fight for the belt and putting his career in jeopardy.In a recent test conducted in Brownes native Australia by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association as part of the WBCs Clean Boxing Program, Brownes A sample came back positive for the banned substance ostarine (also called enobosarm), which is supposed to increase stamina and recovery ability.It is the same substance that former super middleweight titleholder Lucian Bute tested positive for following his controversial draw with world titleholder Badou Jack on April 30. Ostarine has been on the World Anti-Doping Agencys banned list since 2008.We have been notified by VADA about Brownes adverse finding as he was tested under the CBP, WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman told ESPN on Monday night. He has been notified, and the process is being attended as per the protocol.Browne has not commented on the failed test. Manager Matt Clark declined to comment to ESPN and referred any questions to Brownes attorney Leon Margules, who did not return messages seeking comment.In July, Browne voluntarily enrolled in the WBCs new Clean Boxing Program -- under which fighters are subject to random tests at any time throughout the year whether they have a fight scheduled or not -- to show he was committed to boxing as a clean fighter. Browne was trying to distance himself from a positive test for the banned substance clenbuterol.On March 5, Browne rallied for a 10th-round knockout of Ruslan Chagaev in Grozny, Russia, to win the WBAs secondary world title, making him the first Australian to win a heavyweight title.However, Brownes A and B samples both tested positive for clenbuterol after the fight, and he was suspended for six months by the WBA and stripped of the belt, which was returned to Chagaev. The title became vacant in July, when Chagaev was stripped for his failure to pay delinquent sanctioning fees to the WBA.All along, Browne maintained he did not take clenbuterol. He and his team said they believed Brownes food or water was spiked while he was in hostile territory for the fight against Chagaev. Browne appealed the positive test result to the WBA, which eventually ruled that he had not knowingly taken the banned substance and gave him the opportunity to fight for its secondary title again.At the time of his enrollment in the WBCs Clean Boxing Program, Browne said, By voluntarily enrolling in this program, I am able to be randomly (blood or urine) tested at any time, 365 days of the year.I have absolutely no issues withh this, as I am a clean athlete and I believe boxing needs this kind of regulation.dddddddddddd I welcome this aspect of safety for the sport of boxing. I despise all drugs, whether they be performance-enhancing or recreational.Having always been a clean athlete, I am totally opposed to any form of doping. Ive always felt that cheaters in professional boxing should be banned for life. With 21 KOs in my 24 victories, Im of the same opinion as (heavyweight titleholder) Deontay Wilder -- if I was ever to use PEDs, I might end up killing someone.The 37-year-old Browne (24-0, 21) was due to face Shannon Briggs (60-6-1, 53 KOs), 44, a former two-time world titleholder from Brooklyn, New York, for the WBAs vacant secondary title, although the date and location of the bout had not yet been set. However, the WBA ordered last month that the fight must take place by Dec. 31 with the winner obligated to face mandatory challenger Fres Oquendo, who is recovering from a shoulder injury, within 120 days of the bout. Browne is just the latest heavyweight contender to fail a random drug test conducted by VADA this year.??Former world titleholder Alexander Povetkin tested positive for the banned substance meldonium, which caused his mandatory shot to be canceled against WBC titleholder Deontay Wilder in May. The WBC ultimately elected not to punish Povetkin because the amount of the substance in his system was far below the threshold accepted by WADA in an updated notice on the drug published in June.??A sample given by former world titlist Bermane Stiverne on Nov. 11 as part of the WBCs Clean Boxing Program was positive for the banned substance methylhexaneamine, a stimulant also known as dimethyamylamine or DMAA. However, Stiverne will be allowed to go through with his fight against Povetkin for the WBCs vacant interim title on Dec. 17 in Moscow. The WBC said in its report on Stivernes positive test that it will sanction the bout for the interim title because Stiverne has never had a positive test in the past and that there is no evidence that Stiverne intentionally or even knowingly ingested a banned substance with the purpose of enhancing his performance in any fashion. Stivernes ingestion of DMAA was purely accidental.??Lineal heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury failed two tests for cocaine in late September, part of the reason his September rematch with former champion Wladimir Klitschko was canceled. Furys drug, alcohol and mental health problems prompted him to vacate his various title belts.
