Trail Blazers-Clippers Preview

(AP) -- Chris Paul has regularly outperformed Damian Lillard in recent meetings, and the Clippers have gotten the better of the Trail Blazers, as well.

Both clubs seek a fourth straight victory in a matchup between two of the league's premier point guards Wednesday night in Los Angeles.

Paul has elevated his play to help the Clippers (40-21) remain strong in the absence of Blake Griffin, who is still recovering from an elbow injury but could return Sunday at Golden State. Since losing Griffin, Paul has averaged 21.2 points on 52.2 percent shooting with 12.6 assists to help guide Los Angeles to a 7-3 record and remain one half-game behind Portland for fourth place in the Western Conference.
