Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- For a change, the Los Angeles Clippers showed there is resilience in youth, instead of just inexperience.

Lamar Odom and rookie Keyon Dooling broke out in the fourth quarter, leading the Clippers back from a 20-point second-half deficit to pull out a 93-88 victory over the Washington Wizards.

Odom scored 14 of his 20 points in the fourth period and Dooling scored all his 12 and dished out five assists in the final 12 minutes, giving the Clippers their first victory after starting their five-game road trip with three losses.

The Clippers were coming off a blowout in New York where they fell behind early, just as they did tonight. Against the Knicks they never recovered, losing 106-78.

But the Wizards could not keep the young Clippers down. The 21-year-old Odom hit three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter while the 20-year-old Dooling took advantage of Washington on the break, twice outrunning the Wizards for dunks and also hitting once from long range.

"There's no player in the league at the age of 21 with as much responsibility as Lamar," Clippers coach Alvin Gentry said. "We ask a lot of him for a franchise that is trying to rebuild and turn the corner. He's still a kid, and sometimes we tend to lose sight of that. He's maturing very fast, but he still has a lot to learn and at his age, he can only get better with time."

Los Angeles trailed 66-46 when Richard Hamilton hit a running jumper with 3:26 left in the third quarter. The Clippers trailed 72-56 entering the fourth quarter before Odom and Dooling came alive.

Odom hit just 3-of-11 from the field through the first three quarters but was 5-of-6 in the fourth, including 3-of-3 from 3-point range. All five of Dooling's assists came on passes to Odom, and when he wasn't passing, he was taking apart Rod Strickland, a guard once known for being a good defender.

"He's hard to check one-on-one," Odom said of Dooling. "He made some plays, some incredible moves to the hole. I'm always telling him to be confident and that no one can guard him in this league. Tonight he got to the hole and made some big plays when we needed it."

Dooling's dunk with 3:55 left gave Los Angeles its first lead at 84-82. The Clippers didn't go ahead to stay until Odom flipped in a left-handed running jumper with 1:06 left, making it 89-88.

Rod Strickland had a chance to put Washington on top again but missed a 3-pointer with 40 seconds left. Odom hit from beyond the arc with 17 seconds to go, putting the Clippers up, 92-88.

"We got some steals down the stretch and Keyon made some clutch shots," Gentry said. "I know how they feel. We felt like this after the Toronto game (a 104-95 overtime loss), so I can relate to constantly coming up short."

Felipe Lopez scored 15 points, Strickland and Richard Hamilton added 14 apiece and Juwan Howard 12 for the Wizards, who lost their fifth straight game.

"It's very embarrassing," Howard said. "We didn't get the stops we were supposed to. We were playing like we were playing not to lose instead of playing to win. There is no excuse for this. Our effort was just horrible. It was embarrassing for this team, for this organization and the city."

It didn't look like it would go that way in the first half. The Wizards came out and hit their first six shots, opening up a 16-4 midway through the first quarter.

Already trailing 24-11 going into the second quarter, the Clippers did not get credit for a field goal until Michael Smith was charged with goaltending on a shot by Sean Rooks with 8:40 left in the half. Jeff McInnis's jumper with 7:55 to go was the first shot by a Clipper that went through the net, but by that time the Wizards were up 34-17.

Washington led by as much as 47-27 when Strickland hit 1-of-2 free throws with 34 seconds to go in the half.

Corey Maggette scored 18 points and Jeff McInnis added 10 for the Clippers, who recorded nine blocked shots and forced 21 turnovers while committing just 15 themselves.
