LOS ANGELES, Jan. 6 (UPI) -- Eric Bledsoe started a surge 3 minutes into the fourth quarter Wednesday that boosted the Los Angeles Clippers to a 106-93 victory over Denver.

The Nuggets had a four-game winning streak snapped. The Clippers won for the first time in three games.

The contest had been close throughout and the Clippers were clinging to a one-point lead when Bledsoe hit a 3-pointer that gave Los Angeles a 77-73 lead. Bledsoe's layup 19 seconds later increased the advantage to six and the Clippers pulled away from there.

Eric Gordon led the Clippers with 28 points and Blake Griffin had 22 points to go with 18 rebounds. DeAndre Jordan claimed 20 boards and all five Los Angeles starters scored in double figures.

Carmelo Anthony had 30 points for Denver and Chauncey Billups added 25. Those two players, however, were only a combined 17-of-40 from the field.
