Clippers beat Wizards 110-103 for 4th straight win
LA CLIPPERS 110, WASHINGTON 103

By BETH HARRIS
AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Washington coach Randy Wittman wanted his
players fouling DeAndre Jordan, whose free-throw shooting has
always been the weakest part of his game.

That strategy didn't work this time.

Jordan hit four straight free throws during a 10-4 run over the
final 2:48 that gave the Los Angeles Clippers a 110-103 victory
over the Wizards on Wednesday night.

"I'm going to ask Doc if I can shoot the techs from now on,"
Jordan joked.

Blake Griffin led five players in double figures with 29 points
as the Clippers won their fourth in a row.

Jamal Crawford added 21 points, including two 3-pointers from 29
and 33 feet, and Jordan had 14 points and 17 rebounds for the
Clippers, who beat the Wizards for the sixth straight time at
home. Darren Collison scored 16 points to help the team improve
to 11-3 without the injured Chris Paul.

"We have a lot of really good players," Griffin said. "Sometimes
some of these guys don't get the credit they deserve, that's
what I've learned about our team."

Back home for the first time after going 5-2 on their Grammy
road trip, the Clippers improved to 19-3 at Staples Center this
season.

"It was our best opportunity to beat them, especially with Chris
Paul out," John Wall said. "But they're still a great team and
they've been winning games. It's the same as you see without
Chris in there. Those other guys play the same way. J.J. Redick
can shoot the ball and Jamal Crawford's one of the best at
creating his own shots."

Bradley Beal scored 10 of his 20 points in the fourth, and Wall
had 19 points and 11 assists for Washington.

The Wizards, who trailed by 16 points in the game, cut their
deficit to 81-80 early in the fourth on Garrett Temple's steal
and basket. After Crawford scored, Beal's basket got the Wizards
within one again.

"We put ourselves in a great position, but we just didn't have
it at the end of the game," Beal said. "They were executing at
the other end of the floor and we couldn't get a stop."

J.J. Redick, who finished with 20 points, and Crawford combined
to score the Clippers' first 16 points of the fourth, with
Redick hitting two 3-pointers in that stretch to put them up
97-90.

"Him and J.J. have this thing going," Clippers coach Doc River
said. "It's just been really good stuff. We can do that with
veterans."

Kevin Seraphin's basket got Washington to 100-99. Collison
scored and the Wizards had a basket disallowed on a shot-clock
violation. Jordan got fouled and stepped to the line having made
just 2 of 6 to that point. But he sank both to extend the
Clippers' lead to 104-99.

Beal, who was 4 of 6 from the line, got fouled and missed both.
Jordan made another pair of free throws for a 106-99 lead.
Crawford added two more, going 11 of 12 from the line.

"We did a lot of fouling down the stretch and we didn't make
plays at the offensive end," Beal said. "We got out of rhythm a
little bit."

NOTES: The Wizards blew their seventh chance this season to go
over .500, slipping to 22-23. They haven't won a game to go
above that mark since Oct. 31, 2009. ... Los Angeles swept the
season series, 2-0. ... Clippers reserve F Antawn Jamison didn't
play because of a viral illness. ... Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp
attended the game.
