ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Eric Bledsoe picked up the slack for an injury-riddled Los Angeles lineup Wednesday, scoring 27 points to pace the Clippers past Orlando 86-76.

Los Angeles broke things open by holding the Magic to 13 points in the third period while ending a three-game losing streak.

The Clippers were again missing Chris Paul, who sat out his ninth straight game with a bruised right kneecap. A strained hamstring also kept Blake Griffin out for a second consecutive contest.

Bledsoe added had six rebounds and six steals in helping the Clippers hand Orlando its 11th straight loss. Orlando has gone 2-22 since Dec. 21.

Jameer Nelson paced the Magic with 18 points and five rebounds. Nikola Vucevic produced 15 points and grabbed 14 boards.
