Los Angeles, February 25: The Los Angeles Clippers ended their losing streak in the NBA on Monday (February 24), while Joel Embiid and Bradley Beal produced career-highs.

The Clippers snapped a three-game losing run by crushing the Memphis Grizzlies 124-97.

Kawhi Leonard had 25 points on 10-of-17 shooting, while Montrezl Harrell contributed 22 off the bench.

Meanwhile, Beal's career-high 55 points were not enough for the Washington Wizards.
