The Portland Trail Blazers absolutely destroyed the L.A. Clippers on Twitter

Published 2 Comments

NBA social media is brilliant. Whether it's fans, players or franchises, there always seems to be something going on.

The latest hilarious example came between two franchises that did battle in the playoffs as the Portland Trail Blazers completely shut down the Los Angeles Clippers.

Their Western Conference first round series is still fresh in the memory for the Trail Blazers and they were keen to make sure the Clippers did not forget it.

The L.A. franchise held the early advantage in the series before injuries to Blake Griffin and Chris Paul changed everything. However, it remained competitive as DeAndre Jordan's free throws proved to be a big sticking point for the Clippers.

Doc Rivers' men were 2-1 up before Portland won three straight and advanced to play the Golden State Warriors.

As the new season gets closer, the Clippers could be forgiven for looking ahead instead of dwelling on another disappointing postseason campaign. But a simple poll came back to bite them.

On Twitter, they ask 'What's your preference?' listing dunks, alley-oops, threes and blocks. The Blazers responded free throws with a video of DeAndre Jordan's air ball from the charity stripe.

The Clippers immediately deleted their poll but Portland were not going to allow them to get away with it that easily.

This is just the latest example of social media done right from an NBA franchise. The Atlanta Hawks have often been heralded for what they do on Twitter, and the Blazers are no different.
