Recap

Clippers 86, Magic 76: Eric Bledsoe scored a career-high 27 points and tied a season best with six steals while DeAndre Jordan contributed 13 points and 14 rebounds as visiting Los Angeles defeated Orlando despite missing All-Stars Chris Paul and Blake Griffin.

Ryan Hollins added 13 points and eight rebounds for the Clippers, who won for just the third time in the last 10 games without Paul (knee). Griffin is out with an ailing hamstring and backup guard Jamal Crawford (shoulder) also sat out.

Jameer Nelson scored 18 points and Nikola Vucevic had 15 points and 14 rebounds for the Magic, who have lost 11 straight games and 22 of their last 24. Orlando was without key players Arron Afflalo (calf), Glen Davis (foot), J.J. Redick (shoulder) and Hedo Turkoglu (flu).

The Clippers led 64-55 entering the final quarter and led by at least five the entire stanza. Orlando was within seven with under three minutes remaining, but Lamar Odom drained a 3-pointer and Bledsoe hit two free throws to make it a 12-point game with 1:39 left.

Nelson scored all 18 of his points in the first half as Orlando took a 42-40 lead. The Clippers used a 10-0 surge in the third quarter to build a 56-46 advantage with six minutes left in the period.
