Wizards-Clippers Preview

By TAYLOR BECHTOLD Posted Jan 29 2014 2:14AM

Following the best Grammy trip in franchise history, the Los Angeles Clippers are looking to continue their winning ways back at Staples Center.

The Washington Wizards have played well away from home, but they haven't won a road game against Los Angeles in six years.

Though they remain without All-Star Chris Paul, the Clippers seek their fourth straight victory Wednesday night, while the Wizards will try to move above .500 for the first time in more than four years.

Los Angeles (32-15) split its first four games while Staples was being occupied by the Grammy Awards before bouncing back with three straight wins to close out the two-week trip with a franchise-best 5-2 record.

Blake Griffin and Jamal Crawford continued their strong play with Paul out of the lineup, helping the Pacific Division-leading Clippers roll past Milwaukee 114-86 on Monday following wins at Chicago and Toronto over the weekend.

"When we were flying, flying (to Milwaukee), I remember guys saying they can't wait to get home, stuff like that," the All-Star Griffin said. "But we knew we still had a game to play, some business to take care of."

Crawford finished with 25 points and hit 5 of 9 from 3-point range off the bench in Monday's win, while Griffin scored 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting.

Crawford has averaged 22.3 points and a 42.9 3-point percentage to help the Clippers win nine of 12 since Paul separated his shoulder. Griffin has scored 26.4 per game while shooting 57.1 percent from the floor in his last 10.

"(Blake) just does it," said coach Doc Rivers, whose club has the Western Conference's second-best home record at 18-3. "He has been our go-to guy down the stretch."

Paul had 38 points on 11-of-14 shooting with five 3-pointers and 12 assists to get the best of his matchup with John Wall in a 113-97 victory at Washington on Dec. 14.

Wall finished with 24 points and 12 assists in that contest, though he's likely to be matched up against Darren Collison in this meeting. Collison has scored 14.0 per game while hitting 8 of 12 from beyond the arc in his last four.

Wall had 15 points Tuesday and hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 1:28 remaining, and Bradley Beal scored 18 of his 20 in the second half of an 88-85 victory at Golden State.

"I knew in the second half I had to step up for this team to be able to win," Wall said.

The Wizards (22-22) have won two of the first three on their four-game trip and nine of 12 on the road overall. The now get their seventh opportunity this season to go over the .500 mark for the first time since starting 2-1 in 2009-10.

Washington, however, will have to snap a five-game losing streak to the Clippers at Staples Center. The Wizards have dropped eight of their last nine road matchups, with the lone win coming on Feb. 13, 2008.

After outrebounding the Warriors 56-47, Washington will try to keep NBA rebounding leader DeAndre Jordan (13.9 per game) from controlling the glass. Jordan pulled down 18 boards in Monday's win and is averaging 16.5 per game over his last five.

The Clippers have taken 11 of 14 against Eastern Conference teams, and nine of 10 meetings overall with the Wizards.

Clips can seriously pick up some ground with this win. Portland loss to Memphis ( GOSH THOSE GUYS ARE COMING BACK. I thought we were through with them this year ) Warriors loss to Wizards. I am trolling out loud at the Warriors loss. They think they are so good and better than everyone else. You can't lose games like that AT HOME. Well... You know what they say... LIVE BY THE JUMPSHOT DIE BY THE JUMPSHOT...The Warriors shoot to many jumpshot. The Clips this year shoot a lot too, but our guards GET TO THE RIM, Even JJ. All of our guards can get in the paint and score.

1-1 is a very successful road B2B for the Wiz against these two teams. Jump on them early and they'll roll over. Defensive pressure from the jump.

Warriors lost so that keeps them further down in the standings. San Antonio lost to Houston and Portland lost to Memphis. Also, the Thunder play Miami this afternoon so there's a good chance for the Thunder to lose. All of last nights losses closed the gap between the 2-4th seed, so we are only 1.5 games behind Portland, and 2 games behind San Antonio. I love this narrowing of the gap but this is all due to the top teams finally playing top notch opposition, so we can't assume this trend will continue. We need to make trades to get into that top 3.

Only the Thunder scare me. If they have the 1 seed, I'm ok with the 3rd or 2nd seed. If they have the 2nd seed, I'm ok with the 4th or if we run like God, the 1 seed.

I think our 3 point defense gives us a good chance against Spurs, Blazers, Warriors. We have Houston's number so I'm not worried about them.

Game will be very tough seems the Wizards are better on the road than at home. NeNe playing will be tougher than before because they are going to try and attack us with interior scoring and passing that means DJ and Blake have to step it more so then the last few games. Suspecting John Wall to go at Collison often. This is one of those games where defense must be played at a high level.

2nd seed would give us home court in the second round, so we should push for that and it's within reach; the Thunder aren't even really out of reach. We should win this game, second night of back to back for Washington and we've already blown them out on their home court this year.

I know we say this about a lot of games, but this is a CLASSIC trap game scenario:

  • The team's finally home after a successful 7 straight game road trip; liable to become too relaxed.
  • Playing a mediocre team on their 2nd of a back-to-back but with enough talent to score against anyone.
  • Know we have to play at Golden State TOMORROW. Blake, especially must be looking forward to that game.

I hope I'm wrong and the Clippers stay focused.

Wizards 6-3 in their last 9 games. Good defensive team, ranked 10th in DRtg.

Always the 1st game back from a long road trip is the toughest one. Gotta stay focused.

Clippers -8.5 tonight.

I hope Collison has a big game against Wall. And Blake should have his way with Nene. We have to win this game and close in on Portland and San Antonio in the standings.
