APWASHINGTON, United States — Bradley Beal scored 41 points to lead the Washington Wizards to a 117-110 NBA victory on Sunday over a Los Angeles Clippers team suddenly struggling on the defensive end.Beal’s second 40-point game of the season included six three-pointers.ADVERTISEMENT As fate of VFA hangs, PH and US forces take to the skies for exercise Senators to proceed with review of VFA We are young Blake Griffin had 26 points for the Clippers but none in the fourth quarter.Clippers coach Doc Rivers was ejected after picking up two technical fouls with 1:08 remaining — moments after Morris hit back-to-back jumpers.Rivers said he didn’t think his questioning of a foul call on Paul warranted a technical.“At some point, my job is to ask a question,” Rivers said. “You shouldn’t get a technical for that.”But he also thought his side’s defense in the second half didn’t justify a win.“I thought they were far more physical than us in the second half,” Rivers said of the Wizards. “I thought we attacked them in the first half. I thought we attacked them at the beginning of third, but once they smelled blood in the water, I thought they were on the attack. I thought we played on our heels, both ends.”The Wizards certainly took advantage, especially Beal, who is enjoying a break out season and came into the contest averaging 22 points per game.“My game is still not where I want it to be,” the fifth-year player said. “It’s developing for sure. I’m definitely a lot more confident in my game, but I’m my biggest critic. I always want to get better.” CBB View commentslast_img
