Washington Wizards Game 29 Review: Clippers Dominate Wizards in Pierce’s Return

The Washington Wizards were riding a pretty impressive four-game winning streak headed into their home matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers. However, any momentum they had built up over that win streak was quickly stopped by the team of old friend Paul Pierce. The Clippers dominated from beginning to end, winning 108-91.

The Clippers outclassed the Wizards from the opening tip, mostly with the stellar play of L.A.’s 2-guards, Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford. Paul finished with 23 points and seven assists, while Crawford finished with 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting. John Wall seemed to be the only one on the court that was on his game, matching Paul’s 23 points and adding 11 assists. Otto Porter added a good shooting night, hitting 8 of 12 shots on the way to 21 points.

Marcin Gortat scored 12 points with 16 rebounds. Gortat was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week, leading the Wizards to a perfect 3-0 last week for his first-ever Player of the Week honor. The Polish Hammer put up 21.3 points, 11.7 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks per game while shooting a blistering 59.6 percent from the field.
