Caleb Porter, who led the Portland Timbers to the Western Conference finals, was named Major League Soccer's Coach of the Year on Monday. Defender Kevin Alston of the New England Revolution, who returned to the field in July after 4 1/2 months of treatment for cancer, was named the league's Comeback Player of the Year. Both winners were determined in a vote of media members, MLS players and club management. Porter, in his first year with the Timbers, led the team to a conference-best 14-5-15 record, matching the league record for fewest losses in a 34-game schedule.

A 20-point deficit is often too much for a team to overcome. Not the feisty, fun-to-watch Lakers. But comebacks from two massive deficits? Sorry. Too much to ask. GAME SUMMARY: Trail Blazers 114, Lakers 108 The Portland Trail Blazers made sure of it, finally pushing away the Lakers, 114-108, on Sunday at Staples Center. The effort was there from Xavier Henry, who had a career-high 27 points for the Lakers, and Robert Sacre, who had career highs in points (12)

The Lakers (9-8) return home from a three-game trip to host the Portland Trail Blazers (13-3) on Sunday night at Staples Center. The Blazers have been one of the best teams in the NBA through the first month of the season, already with seven wins in nine road games. Portland is a very different team than the Lakers, relying heavily on the offensive production of four players (LaMarcus Aldridge, Damian Lillard, Wesley Matthews and Nicolas Batum) -- each scoring at least 14.1 points a night.

Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill took part in the Lakers' Sunday morning shoot-around and were expected to play Sunday night against Portland, Coach Mike D'Antoni said. Gasol has a sprained right ankle and sprained left hand; Hill has a sprained left ankle. Gasol started slowly this season but has played better lately, averaging 19 points and 9.2 rebounds in his last five games. Hill, on the other hand, has been slumping after an initial burst when he was promoted to the starting lineup.

The Clippers' injuries during training camp have affected how Coach Doc Rivers wants to prepare his team for the regular season. But it hasn't stopped Rivers and his staff from pushing the Clippers. Blake Griffin missed the last two exhibition games because of a sore right ankle and he's not expected to play Friday night when the Clippers play their first exhibition game at Staples Center against the Portland Trail Blazers. Griffin also has missed a practice because of a bone bruise on his left knee.

Before the Clippers played their first exhibition game of the season against the Portland Trail Blazers, Coach Doc Rivers said DeAndre Jordan has been "sensational" during training camp. And then Jordan went and proved his coach right. Jordan had 16 points on six-for-nine shooting, eight rebounds, four blocks and two steals in 21 minutes 11 seconds during the Clippers' 89-81 victory over Portland. He even had success at the free-throw line, making four of five. "It's a fresh start not only for myself, but everybody here," Jordan said.

It wasn't long after the Clippers had boarded their flight from Portland, Ore., to Los Angeles that Coach Doc Rivers began reviewing the tape from his team's first exhibition game against the Trail Blazers on Monday night. Even though his team won, 89-81, in Rivers' debut with the Clippers, a coach's work is never done. It was the way Rivers operated when he was the successful coach of Boston, helping to lead the Celtics to the 2008 NBA championship and the NBA Finals in 2010.
