ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Eric Bledsoe had 27 points, including 19 in the second half, and the Los Angeles Clippers used a big third quarter to secure an 86-76 win over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night.

The victory ended a three-game losing streak for Los Angeles, which has three games remaining on its eight-game road trip.

The Clippers won despite playing without its three top scorers in All-Stars Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, and Jamal Crawford. Paul remains sidelined with a bruised right kneecap and Griffin sat with a strained hamstring. Crawford was out with a sore right shoulder.

Jameer Nelson scored 18 points to lead the Magic and Nikola Vucevic added 15 points and 13 rebounds.

The Magic lost their 11th consecutive game and have now dropped 22 of their last 24.
