Randolph scored a season-high 38 points to lead the Los Angeles Clippers to a 120-112 double-overtime victory over the Blazers on Friday night.
Randolph, who was booed at times by the Portland crowd, also had 11 rebounds.
While the Rose Garden fans' reaction suggested that many associate Randolph with the so-called ''Jail Blazers'' era, Randolph clearly has a soft spot for Portland.
''I miss the rain,'' he said. ''I miss everything. I came here at 19 and I still have a house here.''
But the brief trip down memory lane was also a motivational factor....
The Clippers (5-17), with the second-worst record in the Western Conference, sure did. Baron Davis contributed 27 points and made a 3-pointer that sent the game into overtime.
A little D, anyone?
