Last night from MCI Center:

SEEN AND HEARD

Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said the new active/inactive list has added a nuance to the game he must get used to, especially since he can make a move up to an hour before the game.

But the big shock of the night was on Andray Blatche, the rookie the Wizards drafted out of high school in the second round. Blatche found out from a reporter he was replacing injured veteran Antonio Daniels on the active roster.

“I didn’t know I was active; I didn’t know anything about it,” said Blatche, who was shot in the chest in late September. “I don’t even have my game stuff on. But this feels good. I feel like I’m reborn.”

KEY TO THE GAME

The Clippers had no trouble getting the shots they wanted in the fourth quarter, hitting 12 of 18 from the floor (66.7 percent).

KEY PLAYER

Corey Maggette, playing in his first game of the season, scored 10 points in the fourth quarter for the Clippers.

KEY NUMBER

13 Free throws in a row made by the Wizards to start the game. The Wizards shot 63.2 percent from the line in their first three games.
