In their matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers, the Portland Trail Blazers led by as many as 18 points and even had a 13-point advantage going into the fourth quarter. However, the Rip City team ultimately fell short, 118–112.

Of course, what transpired has puzzled the entire NBA community. Even though Damian Lillard wasn’t playing, the Clippers were without Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, while the Blazers still had Anfernee Simons and Jerami Grant.

Fans couldn’t help but criticize the Blazers for their classic choke job since it was so obvious. One of the worst blazer losses of the year, I think, was that one. You blow an 18-point lead without PG or Kawhi, just to have Ant walk into the paint with two defenders on him in the fourth quarter and believe it will be a simple layup. This squad is so stressful at times, one irate fan remarked.

“Bro the whole clippers team was the bench,” a further dissatisfied fan exclaimed. That home loss should never happen. Others highlighted the Blazers’ mistakes. The LA team outscored Portland 36-17 in the fourth quarter because they were unable to muster any offense of their own. For the Clippers, Norman Powell was outstanding, scoring 22 of his game-high 32 points in the fourth quarter alone.

Powell was essential to the victory, but the Clippers’ defense also performed admirably. “The defense for the Clippers just stopped the Blazer. In the paint, there were poor shots and block after block. Why didn’t Drew participate? provided by a Twitter user.

Another reviewer succinctly summed up that crucial last frame by writing, “Blazers – Clippers 4th. Neither the Blazers nor the Clippers could make a shot. Against the Clippers, the Blazers clearly suffered a severe collapse. But at least they have learned a valuable lesson from it. No lead, no matter how large, is safe in the NBA.
