PORTLAND, Ore. A. J. Hinch Jersey . -- DeAndre Jordan had 16 points and eight rebounds and the Los Angeles Clippers opened the preseason with an 89-81 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night. Chris Paul added 15 points and eight rebounds as new Clippers head coach Doc Rivers got a look at his team after holding training camp last week in San Diego. "You can see them in practice, but games are different," Rivers said afterward. Nicolas Batum, who played for his native France this summer on the gold-medal winning European Championship team, led Portland with 12 points. Blazers guard Damian Lillard, last seasons NBA rookie of the year, added 11 points and six assists, but Portland was hampered by the absence of All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge, who was nursing a left quadriceps injury. "Well, it looked like a first exhibition game," Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. Rivers joined the Clippers this summer when the Celtics agreed to let him out of his contract in exchange for a first-round draft pick in 2015. Rivers also serves as senior VP of basketball operations. Rivers joins a talent-laden team that had a club-record 56 wins and its first Pacific Division championship, but fell in the first round of the playoffs to the Memphis Grizzlies. The Clippers have 11 new players on their roster, building around the nucleus of Paul, Jordan and Blake Griffin. Willie Green and newcomer Jared Dudley rounded out the starting lineup on Monday night. The Blazers were also without new guard Mo Williams because of a sprained right ankle. Williams, a 10-year veteran, was signed as a free agent in the off-season after spending last season with the Utah Jazz. Forward Dorell Wright, also acquired this summer, was given the night off. Portlands top draft pick C.J. McCullom was absent after fracturing his left foot during practice. He will need surgery and his recovery time isnt yet known. Four of the Blazers starters return this season, including Aldridge, Batum, Lillard and Wesley Matthews. The Blazers added 7-foot centre Robin Lopez, acquired in a three-team deal from New Orleans in the off-season. Lopez finished with eight points and 10 rebounds. "I think maybe I was a little too overanxious," Lopez said. "I was moving too quickly. I wasnt stopping to think." Paul hit a 19-footer to give the Clippers an early 15-4 lead and Rivers kept his starters in for much of the first quarter. The Blazers cut the lead to 25-22 on Lillards layup, and evened it on Allen Crabbes put-back dunk. After Antawn Jamisons jumper for the Clippers, Crabbe hit a 3-pointer that gave Portland its first lead of the game at 28-27. But Portland stumbled over its own mistakes, with 17 first-half turnovers, and Greens 3-pointer put Los Angeles back up 43-36. Griffins dunk off a steal by Jordan put the Clippers up 53-20. Jordan led the Clippers with 14 points and six rebounds at the half. Griffins dunk midway through the third quarter kept the Clippers in front 66-54. Ryan Hollins hit a layup and a free throw that gave Los Angeles an 84-66 lead in the fourth. Rivers focus the first week of training camp was on the defence, and he said that overall he was encouraged by what he saw. "Were just trying to get them to see -- defence is all the time," Rivers said. The Blazers finished 33-49 last season and out of the playoffs for the second straight year. Willie Wilson Jersey .
