LOS ANGELES—J..J. Redick had his own March Madness moment at Staples on Thursday, March 24, as he curled around a screen, caught the inbound pass from Chris Paul, and drained the 21 foot jumper as time expired. Propelling the Los Angeles Clippers over the Portland Trailblazers, 96-94.

This was a must win for the Clippers, who were blown out by the Golden State Warriors last night, and have been facing an uphill battle playing without All-Star Blake Griffin, plus a bench that is uneven and is trying to gel.

Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford each scored 25 points. However, it was the former Duke Blue Devil being mobbed by his teammates.
