LOS ANGELES -- J.J. Redick came through at the free-throw line in the closing seconds to help the Los Angeles Clippers pull out a win in a game that saw the teams trade leads until the final minutes.Blake Griffin had 26 points and 12 rebounds, Chris Paul had 21 points and 14 assists, and the Clippers held off the Portland Trail Blazers 121-120 Monday night to sweep the three-game season series.Redick finished with 19 points, hitting all eight of his free throws -- including three in the final seconds to push Los Angeles lead to four points.Portlands Damian Lillard hit a 3-pointer with 1.7 seconds left for the final margin.It was an up-and-down game, back and forth, Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. Each team made not big runs, but little runs and that was kind of the ebb and flow of the game.The final minutes saw Clippers center DeAndre Jordan and Blazers forward Evan Turner ejected. Portland center Mason Plumlee was hit with a technical after he elbowed Griffin on a drive in his face, causing a cut on his upper lip that needed three stitches after the game.That only highlighted what was a roughly played game throughout.Im sure there is no love lost, Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. We play each other a lot and whenever you play each other a lot it seems like you get testy. We dont really care if you like us or not.Paul was also charged with a flagrant foul.Its just competition, Paul said. Guys out there fighting and trying to get a win and stuff happens.Paul hit a three-pointer with just over 2 minutes to play, and later added a pair of free throws to give the Clippers a 118-113 lead with 18 seconds to play.But the Blazers responded again, Lillard hit a pair of free throws himself. After Lillards last 3 the Clippers ran out the clock.It was probably our most competitive game of the year, Stotts said. It was a tough loss but I like the way we competed throughout the game. We got down and came back. It was a very good effort.C.J. McCollum had 25 points and Lillard finished with 24 points and eight assists for the Trail Blazers, who lost their fourth straight -- all on the road.The way we played tonight is the way were supposed to play, Lillard said. This is what gives us our best chance against good teams, like they are. Its what weve kind of been missing on a consistent basis. We did a good job but lost the game. We want to win.The Clippers acted like they were going to dominate early, jumping out to a 38-27 lead at the end of the first quarter. They connected on 14 of 22 field goals (63.6 percent), came up with four blocked shots and outscored Portland 14-4 to close the quarter.But Portland charged back in the second, opening with a 13-2 run and then just kept rolling. The Blazers outscored the Clippers 33-18 in the second quarter to take a 60-56 lead at the half.I thought we did a great job early being an aggressor and then somewhere we lost it, but down the stretch the guys made plays, Griffin said.A PLUM ADDITIONThe 6-11 Plumlee had a strong game, finishing with 18 points, seven rebounds and five blocked shots.TECHNICAL AFFAIRStotts also picked up a technical when he objected to foul called against McCollum on a three-point attempt with 4:14 left.

He will look to end Vettels run of six straight race wins on Sunday. Webber, who is fifth in the championship, earned his second pole from the past three races and 13th of his career. MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins will try to build on one of their most productive road trips of the season when they open a four-game series against the Houston Astros at Target Field on Monday night.In that attempt, the Twins will also get back third baseman Trevor Plouffe, who has missed the last month with a fractured rib.The Twins went 5-2 on a seven-game trip that began with three wins in a four-game series against Central Division-leading Cleveland last week at Progressive Field. Minnesota also won two of three over Tampa Bay over the weekend, capped by third baseman Miguel Sanos two homer afternoon in a 6-3 win on Sunday.While Sano was able to get going against the Rays, Twins skipper Paul Molitor will be forced to shuffle his lineup around with the return of Plouffe, a third baseman who has also seen time at first base this season.Plouffes 2016 campaign has been a disappointment thus far; the slugger has just seven homers after hitting 22 last year and has a career low .283 on-base percentage. But he was swinging well in 12 games before the injury, hitting .326 with a pair of homers and seven RBI over the final two weeks of June. He also hit .316 with a homer and two RBI in five rehabilitation games with Triple-A Rochester before being activated following the win in Tampa on Sunday.To make room for Plouffe, the Twins sent down struggling center fielder Byron Buxton, who entered the season as one of the top prospects in all of baseball.After an underwhelming first taste of big-league action last season, Buxton hasnt fared much better this time around, hitting just .193 with 80 strikeouts in 197 at-bats in 2016.All I can tell you is that I like having people like Byron around here, Molitor said. Hes got to go down there and work on some physical things, mechanical things, and hopefully get aa little confidence back.ddddddddddddThe Astros come to town off a 5-3 loss to Texas in Houston on Sunday, a game that saw the Astros rally from three runs down late before allowing a pair of runs in the top of the 11th inning.Texas won two of three against Houston over the weekend, helping the Rangers increase their lead to 7 1/2 games over the Astros for first place in the American League West. The Seattle Mariners, who have won three-straight games, also moved ahead of Houston for second place in the division.Any time I leave this podium after a loss, I hate it, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said, according to I dont care what team is on the other side. I dont care what division theyre in, what league theyre in, how the loss happened. ... Im not naive. I know that those games (against the Rangers) are going to be magnified ... but if we had lost to an unnamed team not named the Rangers, I would be just as disappointed.Houston native Tyler Duffey will take the mound for Minnesota in game one of the series. Duffey, who attended Bellaire High School and pitched for Rice University, has given up at least five runs in each of his last three starts and could pitch his way out of the rotation with another clunker on Monday.Duffey, a righty, allowed two runs on six hits and a walk in 6 2/3 innings in a no decision last season in Houston in his only career start against his hometown team.Collin McHugh will go for the Astros, coming off a quality start against Toronto in which he allowed three runs in six innings of work. The right-hander allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks i
