WASHINGTON — Mike Scott tied a season-high with 22 points while Bradley Beal added 20 as the Washington Wizards held off the Los Angeles Clippers, 100-91, on Friday (Saturday, Manila time).

John Wall scored 15 points on just 5-for-16 shooting in his second game back after a nine-game absence but scored seven points as the Wizards closed the game on an 18-9 run after Los Angeles had come back to tie the game at 82 on a 3-pointer by Lou Williams.

Williams led the Clippers with 23 points while rookie Jawun Evans had a career-high 15 points as Los Angeles had a three-game winning streak snapped.
