Clippers wallop Wizards as Chris Paul, J.J. Redick out-play John Wall, Bradley Beal

first_imgWall had 19 points with 10 assists for Washington, Beal had 18 points and Nene scored 14. Paul Pierce shot just 2 of 11 from the field for six points.Clippers coach Doc Rivers was stoked about the way his team responded after its lead was cut to six, 94-88, with 8:52 left in the game.“Oh, I thought it was great,” he said. “I thought we played just good basketball throughout the game. They made a run, I figured at some point they would. But we called a timeout, we get a basket from J.J. and then we got a couple of stops and then we took it from there.”Apparently, the 104-96 loss Dec. 12 at Washington had stuck in Rivers’ craw.“I just like the way we responded,” Rivers said. “I say that because it was more of a response to the game in Washington.”The Clippers are now alone in fifth-place in the Western Conference standings. The Wizards are in fifth in the East.Paul said Rivers basically challenged the team to get revenge on the Wizards.“Yeah, we responded well,” Paul said. “Coach laid into us this morning at the shootaround about the last time we played this team and how they just pretty much punked us, so it was a good win for us.”Jordan, who has just been a beast on the boards, loved his team’s offense. The Clippers shot 52.3 percent from the field, 52.2 (12 of 23) from 3-point range.“We moved the ball around,” Jordan said. “I mean, we had 33 assists, so the ball was definitely popping around. Everybody got a lot of shots, and we were knocking down shots.”The Clippers outrebounded Washington 46-36. Griffin and Paul had six rebounds apiece, and Paul doled out 15 assists.Jordan played a whopping 42 minutes and 48 seconds.“Doc told me I was going to stay in,” Jordan said, “so I just had to make the best of my minutes and rest whenever I could during the game.”Wall was not happy.“We didn’t play our defense,” he said. “We put up points, but it was hard to overcome the (12) 3s we allowed. We have to give them credit. J.J. (Redick) made some shots and got his teammates some good looks.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error It seems like this time of the NBA season, there are nothing but tough challenges. That was the case for the Clippers on Friday, when they played host to the Washington Wizards at Staples Center.The most difficult part of this game for the Clippers figured to be slowing down the highly talented Wizards backcourt of speedy point guard John Wall and shooting guard Bradley Beal.Wall gets most of the publicity, but it was Beal who burned the Clippers for 29 points in a Wizards victory in December.Those two did their damage Friday. But Clippers guards Chris Paul and J.J. Redick were better, coming through with 30 point and 26 points, respectively, to lead the Clippers to a 113-99 victory over the Wizards before 19,218 at Staples Center.center_img The Clippers (45-25) have now won three in a row. The Wizards (40-29) had their five-game winning streak snapped.The Clippers led 35-21 after one quarter, 66-54 at halftime and 90-77 after three quarters. That lead was whittled to six with over eight minutes to play in the game, but the Clippers restored order when Redick buried a 3-pointer off an assist from Paul, pushing the lead to 103-90 with 5:18 left.Paul sealed Washington’s fate with back-to-back baskets for a 111-94 lead with just 3:08 to play. Blake Griffin contributed 22 points for the Clippers and DeAndre Jordan had 10 points and 23 rebounds.Clippers forward Matt Barnes returned after missing two games with a hamstring injury and scored eight points, but Jamal Crawford (calf) missed his ninth consecutive game. Also, Glen “Big Baby” was out with a stomach illness.last_img read more
