Lou Williams put together another big game, scoring 33 points to lead the Los Angeles Clippers to a 113-105 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

Williams connected on all 15 of his free-throw attempts as the Clippers won their fourth consecutive game and their sixth in the past seven. Williams topped 30 points in four of the past six contests and is averaging 30.8 points during the stretch.

The Clippers, who shot 54.9 percent from the field, led by two points entering the fourth quarter but started strong and took a 101-90 edge on Lou Williams' three-point play with 6:37 to play. Memphis responded with an 11-2 run to pull within two on Wayne Selden's driving hoop with 2:04 left.

Griffin drained a 3-pointer 17 seconds later to halt the Grizzlies' momentum, and Los Angeles closed it out.

A 3-pointer by C.J. Williams gave the Clippers a 75-68 lead with 8:13 left in the third quarter. Memphis responded with 14 consecutive points to take a seven-point lead on two free throws from Marc Gasol with 4:16 remaining.

Los Angeles answered with an 11-2 burst to enter the final quarter with an 86-84 edge.
