The Los Angeles Clippers have now lost four games in a row.
The Clippers led 100-91 with 2:38 left in the game before Portland went on a 10-0 run sparked by a Damian Lillard three-pointer and culminating with two made free throws by J.J. Hickson to give the Trail Blazers a 101-100 lead with 45.2 seconds remaining in the game.
Jamal Crawford had two chances to win the game in the final 15 seconds but missed a layup and a three-pointer to close out the game.
Crawford and Matt Barnes scored 19 and 11 points, respectively, off the bench for the Clippers while combining to shoot 11-of-25 from the field. Blake Griffin nearly recorded his first triple-double of the season, as he had 24 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists to go along with four steals in the game.
Portland scored the last 10 points in the game to earn the win. Batum's triple-double was his second in the last three games for Portland.
