LOS ANGELES -- Washington coach Randy Wittman wanted his players fouling DeAndre Jordan, whose free-throw shooting has always been the weakest part of his game. http://www.nikezoompegasusuk.com/men-s- ... 9-441.html
. That strategy didnt 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. "Im 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 three-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 dont get the credit they deserve, thats what Ive 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 theyre still a great team and theyve been winning games. Its 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 Crawfords 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 Temples steal and basket. After Crawford scored, Beals basket got the Wizards within one again. "We put ourselves in a great position, but we just didnt have it at the end of the game," Beal said. "They were executing at the other end of the floor and we couldnt 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 three-pointers in that stretch to put them up 97-90. "Him and J.J. have this thing going," Clippers coach Doc River said. "Its just been really good stuff. We can do that with veterans." Kevin Seraphins 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 didnt make plays at the offensive end," Beal said. "We got out of rhythm a little bit."

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Lightning coach Jon Cooper could sense the momentum start shifting in Tampa Bays favour once Sabres forward Thomas Vaneks third-period goal was disallowed. Less than half a minute later, Lightning forward Teddy Purcell tied the game at 2. Alex Killorn then capped the Lightnings comeback, scoring 1:50 into overtime in a 3-2 victory on Tuesday night. "That was a big turn of events," Cooper said. "The way it played out, that was a big momentum shift for us." Vanek concurred, and was none too happy about it either. "I tipped it in, and the next thing I know hes waving it off and pointing at me that I got 2 minutes," Vanek said. "I just thought he was wrong, but it doesnt matter. Me yelling and screaming at him is just going to get him mad and get them more power plays." The turn of events occurred 5:21 into the third period. Vanek tipped in Jamie McBains point shot, but the goal was immediately waved off by referee Jean Hebert, who called Vanek for high-sticking on Matthew Carle. What was confusing is that Hebert had his arm up while the Sabres controlled the puck as if to indicate a delayed penalty against the Lightning. It took 22 seconds into Vaneks penalty for Purcell to capitalize by completing a nifty three-way passing play. Purcell was surprised by what happened. "Actually, I thought the call was on us, too," Purcell said. "The crowd sure didnt like it. But I thought it was the turning point of the game." Tyler Johnson also scored for the Lightning, who have yet to hold a lead in regulation. They were coming off a 3-2 shootout victory at Chicago in which the Lightning overcame a 2-0 third-period deficit. Vanek had two assists, while McBain and Cody Hodgson had a goal and assist each for Buffalo (0-3-1). Despite the loss, Buffalo finally generated some offence by doubling its season goal total. The Sabres also earned a point to avoid extending their franchise-worst season-opening losing streak to four games. Buffalo had previously never oopened a season losing more than two straight in regulation. http://www.nikezoompegasusuk.com/men-s- ... 2-010.html
. Following the game, the NHL issued an email to explain the disallowed goal. The league said, Hebert did not see Sabres forward Steve Ott touch the puck and pass it to McBain at the point. The league backed Hebert in ruling that he made the right call by disallowing the goal. "The net result was the correct call -- no goal, penalty to Buffalo," the release said. Killorns goal came during a scramble in front and after Sabres goalie Jhonas Enroth stopped Valtteri Filppulas shot from in close. Filppula then circled the net and passed the puck out front, where Killorn drove across the top of the crease and backhanded a shot into the open right side. Cooper would prefer the Lightning get off to a better start, but hes not complaining of his teams finish. "We dont want to play with fire every single game," Cooper said. "But they showed some resiliency and came back in two tough buildings and got us four points." The Sabres power play produced both goals after entering the game 0 for 13 this season, and 0 for 16 in its previous five games going back to last year. And Buffalo took its first lead of the season 11:09 into the second period when Hodgson opened the scoring. By scoring two goals, the Sabres avoided several dubious marks. They avoided becoming only the 15th NHL team to open a season with three or fewer goals through four games. Thats a group that includes the 1970-71 Sabres, who opened their inaugural season with three goals in four games. NOTES: Sabres LW Marcus Foligno returned after missing the first three games with a shoulder injury. ... Sabres G Ryan Miller returned, serving as a backup after sitting out one game with a lower-body injury. ... With an assist on Purcells goal, Lightning RW Martin St. Louis earned his 915th career point to move into a tie with Bobby Orr for 94th on the NHL list. ... The Lightning concluded a three-game road trip, and return home to play seven straight at home.
