WASHINGTON (AP) – Blake Griffin scored all of his 26 points in the first half and the Los Angeles Clippers rolled to a 122-101 victory over the Washington Wizards on Saturday night.

In the matchup between the last two No. 1 overall picks, Griffin got the best of John Wall, both on the scoreboard and in the individual battle.

Wall finished with 25 points, although the rookie from Kentucky also added eight assists and seven rebounds.

Los Angeles built a 19-point, first-half lead, only to see Washington close the gap to 68-65 with 8:36 left in the third quarter.

But the Clippers went on a 29-8 burst over the third and fourth periods to cruise to their fifth win in six tries.

Eric Bledsoe added a career-high 23 points for Los Angeles.
