PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Gerald Wallace scored 20 points, making a key 3-pointer with two minutes left, and the Portland Trail Blazers avenged a loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on New Year’s Day with a 105-97 victory on Tuesday night.

LaMarcus Aldridge added 18 points and seven rebounds for the Blazers, who have not lost in six games at home this season.

Wallace’s 3-pointer put the Blazers ahead 99-90, but the Clippers narrowed it to 100-97 after Chris Paul made a layup and Chauncey Billups hit a jumper and a free throw with 25 seconds left. Portland made free throws the rest of the way to preserve the win.

Portland has just two losses, including one to the Clippers at the Staples Center on Jan. 1. Wallace was held scoreless in that game.
