MEMPHIS, Jan. 14 (UPI) -- Jamaal Crawford and Matt Barnes combined for 32 points Monday and the Los Angeles Clippers routed Memphis 99-73 despite the absence of guard Chris Paul.

Crawford and Barnes each netted 16 points and Eric Bledsoe filled in for Paul with 14 as the NBA West-leading Clippers rebounded from a loss Saturday against Orlando.

Paul was scratched before the game and listed as day-to-day with a bruised kneecap suffered against the Magic.

DeAndre Jordan blocked three shots to pace a tough Los Angeles defense that held the Grizzlies to just 30.3 percent shooting from the floor.

Zach Randolph managed to hit only 5-of-16 shots en route to 15 points and 12 rebounds for Memphis, which dropped a second straight following a four-game winning streak.
