From last night: Nicolas Batum powers #Blazers over Clippers in OT as Portland continues habit of late comebacks bit.ly/1GY2O4U

Remi Reverchon

Et ben voilà, on dirait que Punta Mita a bien fait le boulot! @Nicolas Batum @GoldyLily espn.go.com/blog/truehoop/…

Iñako Diaz-Guerra

LAC 93 - POR 98 Nico Batum reduce a la nada los 36 puntos de Chris Paul. dozz.es/9tl6t

LaMarcus Aldridge

Great win! On to the next. Happy for my lil bro @Nicolas Batum played big tonight. He carried us tonight when we needed.

Robin Lopez

Big win! Gotta keep winning those 4th quarters. @Nicolas Batum led the way, helluva all around game! #NeverSayDie #RIPCITY

Erik Gundersen

Nicolas Batum comes up big in Blazers comeback over Clippers 98-93 OT wp.me/p3CpBY-1rx

Mike Richman

Terry Stotts says Batum scored or assisted on the Blazers last 19 points.

Sean Meagher

Or Batum. RT @CHold: This game doesn't end up this exiting without intentional fouling. That's facts.

Mark Followill

Nicolas Batum had a hand in Blazers last 19 pts (thru scoring or an assist). Damian Lillard went 1/13 FGs for 5 pts but he did have 18 rebs

Sean Meagher

Ahem ... RT @ESPNStatsInfo: Nicolas Batum (POR): scored or assisted on the last 19 Trail Blazers points (including overtime).

Mike Richman

Blazers win 98-93 in overtime. Aldridge had 29pts, Batum with 20points, 7rebs, 8ast. Lillard 18rebs, 5pts. Who knows?

Joseph Goodman

And by "all the time" you mean the playoffs. RT @Nate Jones Need this Batum all the time. Great game.

Beto Duran

Have always liked Batum's game. Wonder how he would do popularity wise in a big market

Sean Meagher

Nicolas Batum starteed this game and Nicolas Batum is finishing this game.

Sean Highkin

Game-changer for the Blazers if Batum is back to being himself.

Mike Richman

Nicolas Batum with a monster block and then he steps into a 3. Wow.

Jabari Davis

Welp, that escalated quickly. #Batum

Erik Gundersen

If a team takes Lillard out of the game this is what has to happen for Portland to succeed with Batum handling.

Mike Richman

Damian Lillard grabs his 17th rebound. Batum fires a lob to Aldridge...Blazers up 93-89 with 2:02 left in OT. What a fun, bizarre game.

Erik Gundersen

Batum morphed into Dre Miller in OT

Steve Luhm

So DeAndre Jordan backs off Batum on tying three and doesn't try to score potential game-winner. Uh ... nice.

Mike Richman

That ball is pretty clearly off Batum. Clippers will have the ball in the corner. Game tied at 87 with 2.5 seconds left.

Erik Gundersen

Wonder if Batum tries the sly run into the screen on DJ again?

Melissa Rohlin

Wi 25.1 seconds left in the and the Clippers up by three points, 87-84, Nicolas Batum made an uncontested three pointer to tie the game.

Beto Duran

Big 3 shot by Batum. Blazers tied up w Clippers at 87 w :25.1 to go on ESPN. Sounding good @RyanRuocco

Mike Richman

Afflalo scores inside against Austin Rivers, Lillard grabs his 15th rebound -- near turnover -- and then Batum ties it with a 3. Yikes.

Eric Pincus

Redick misses - Batum for 3 - 87-87 25.1 left - fun

Erik Gundersen

Batum has got to help by making plays like that if Portland wants to come back. Great feed to Aldridge.

Mike Richman

Clippers 68, Blazers 66 - End 3rd: Aldridge 21pts, 8rebs, Lopez 11pts, 6rebs, Batum 10pts. Lillard 0-for-8 FGs. Reddick 24pts, CP3 22pts

Mike Richman

Clippers up 48-46 at the half. Aldridge 11pts, Batum 10pts, Lopez 9pts, 5rebs; Chris Paul 17pts, Reddick 14pts.

Erik Gundersen

Positive start for Batum and the Blazers. Portland up 28-24 after 1. 10 points for Batum.

Mike Richman

Blazers 28, Clippers 24 - End 1st: Batum 10pts, Aldridge 9pts, 4rebs; CP3 9pts, 3ast, Reddick 7pts.

Mike Richman

Batum hits another 3. He has 8 on 3-3 shooting.

Mike Richman

Blazers starters doing work on the glass early. Batum, Lopez and Aldridge each have 2, Lillard has 3 and Matthews has 1. Clips have 4 total.

Erik Gundersen

Batum making his presence felt early.

Erik Gundersen

Many current Blazers like Damian Lillard, Nic Batum and coach Terry Stotts are in attendance. As is former Blazers coach Rick Adelman. #JK25

Matthews checking Rudy Gay & Batum on McLemore #Kings v #Blazers #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk

Erik Gundersen

Batum foul trouble leads to Alonzo Gee's first meaningful Blazers minutes. He's checking Rudy Gay.

Bill Herenda

All 5 Blazers in DFigs - Matthews 9, Aldridge 6 while Batum has 4 assists, Miller & McCallum combined 10 for Sac, Gay w/6 Por up 27-17 #NBA

Bill Herenda

Nice post feed from Thompson to Rudy Gay ducking in on Batum for hoop Sac up 7-6 #Kings v #Blazers #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk

Bill Herenda

Batum on Rudy Gay, who has averaged 32 ppg over his last four games vs Portland, #Kings v #Blazers #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk

Erik Gundersen

"That was a playoff game tonight." -- Nicolas Batum. Game story ----> columbian.com/news/2015/feb/…

Kerry Eggers

More @Nicolas Batum on #Blazers 4th-quarter rally: "We got some stops. The crowd was into it. That was a crazy game. I like it."

Sean Meagher

GREAT D from Batum on Westbrook there.

Mike Richman

Serge Ibaka and LaMarcus Aldridge get techs. After Ibaka gave an extra slap to Batum and LA came over to discuss that decision.

Mike Richman

Tied at 103 with 4:32 to play. Blazers going with a small lineup (Wright/Batum at the 4) and the space on offense has been the difference.

Kerry Eggers

Kyle Singler with 3 very poor fouls in the 4Q, including that one that puts @Nicolas Batum at the line for 3 shots
