shooting from beyond the arc to lead the Washington Wizards to a 98-90 victory
over the shorthanded Los Angeles Clippers on Monday.
Nene and Garrett Temple each scored 15 points and John Wall added 13 points
and eight assists for the Wizards, who snapped a four-game skid.

points off the bench in the win.
Jamal Crawford poured in 28 points and Eric Bledsoe scored 17 points and

strained his left hamstring during warmups prior to Monday's tilt. He had
played in 197 straight games before the injury.
