There were lots of boos for former Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp when he came to the plate in a key spot in the eighth inning at Dodger Stadium. Fully motivated, Kemp then delivered a 3-run home run off Dodgers reliever Chris Hatcher to give the Padres a 4-1 lead in the eighth inning.

Clippers 82, Blazers 80 to start the 4th quarter. Austin Rivers has 19 points and scored 14 in the third quarter alone after getting 11 stitches around his left eye.

Surprised the Blazers never intentionally fouled DeAndre Jordan even when the Clippers found an offensive rhythm. Visitors lead 82-80 heading to the final period.

Austin Rivers, who has 11 stitches around his left eye, has scored 18 points for the Clippers with 13 in the third quarter alone.

I'm not sure if Austin Rivers can see much out of his left eye but he's back on the floor.

Kevin Pelton ESPN Staff Writer 

Case for hacking DeAndre Jordan with Clippers injuries: him coming out is a huge win. Case against: this Clippers offense isn't real potent.

Austin Rivers is back on the court after receiving four stitches above his left eye and seven stitches on the bottom.

It was fun for the Dodgers while it lasted. When San Diego scored a run in the fourth inning Friday, it ended a 32-inning scoreless streak against L.A., dating back to last season. It was tied for the Dodgers' sixth longest scoreless inning streak, by innings, against one team in club history.

No surprise, the Los Angeles Rams didn't move back into day 2 after trading away their second and third round picks to move up for QB Jared Goff at No. 1 overall. The Rams will get to pick again Saturday when they have two fourth-round choices and two sixth-round selections. Receiver, tight end and safety are among the positions the Rams will be looking for.

Clippers 24, Blazers 24 at the end of the 1st quarter. Not bad considering Doc Rivers might have to play point guard for the Clippers.

Austin Rivers received stitches on two different cuts above and below the left eye and is probable to return.

The Blazers' offensive rebounding is causing problems for this small Clippers frontcourt without Blake Griffin. They've got seven offensive boards and six second-chance points in the first 9:09.
