Former Seattle Prep standouts Spencer Hawes and Martell Webster led their NBA teams in scoring and helped them win Monday night.

Hawes collected 21 points and a season-high 14 rebounds to lead the host Philadelphia 76ers to a 78-61 victory over the short-handed Orlando Magic.

Meanwhile, Webster scored 21 points for the Washington Wizards in a 98-90 decision over the Los Angeles Clippers, who were missing Blake Griffin and Chris Paul.

The only player in the game with more points than Webster was the Clippers’ Jamal Crawford — a graduate of Rainier Beach High School in Seattle who scored 28.

Philadelphia won its third in a row, but it was a costly victory. Thaddeus Young, the team’s top rebounder, injured his left hamstring diving for a ball and team officials estimated he might be out for two weeks.

“It’s going to be tough because there is no replacing what Thad brings to the table,” Hawes said. “But that’s the name of the game. Injuries happen. We’re trying to catch up to Boston and they just lost their best player (guard Rajon Rondo) for the year and look how they responded.”

Hawes, a former Washington Huskies player, made 9 of 17 shots against an Orlando team that listed six players as inactive. The Magic has lost 10 in a row.

In the Wizards-Clippers game, Webster connected on 6 of 10 shots.

Griffin’s streak of consecutive games played ended at 197 because of a strained left hamstring. Point guard Paul missed his eighth straight game — the Clippers are 2-6 during that span — and 11th of the last 13 because of a bruised right kneecap.

“You guys would have printed it a wholly different other way if we had lost,” Wizards coach Randy Wittman playfully told media after the game. “Now you’re going to print, ‘Ah, you won because Blake didn’t play.’ Give me a break.”

Washington snapped a four-game losing streak.

Wittman said his team was inconsistent on offense and added, “If my forehead’s red, (it’s from) banging the wall.”

Crawford, who made 10 of 20 shots, said, “When you’re a championship-level team, you have high expectations. And we do, no matter who’s in and who’s out. Obviously we’re missing some of our better players, but no excuse.”

Portland prevails

MINNEAPOLIS — LaMarcus Aldridge had 25 points and 13 rebounds to help the Portland Trail Blazers beat Minnesota 100-98.

Wes Matthews scored 22 points and Damian Lillard added 21 for the Blazers, but each had five of the team’s season-high 28 turnovers.

Minnesota had a chance to tie or win on its last possession, but Dante Cunningham’s 19-footer was short.
