LOS ANGELES – The Wizards are 9-3 in their past 12 road games and are tied with the Toronto Raptors for the third-most road wins in the Eastern Conference with 12.

They are looking to end this four-game road trip with a 3-1 record and claim their first-ever victory against Blake Griffin. The Los Angeles Clippers have won the past five games against Washington at Staples Center, including a 94-87 win on Jan. 19, 2013.

When the teams met on Dec. 14, Clippers all-star point guard Chris Paul scored a game-high 38 points on just 14 shots in a 113-97 victory, but he is sidelined with a separated shoulder for the rematch. The Clippers have gone 9-3 without Paul.
