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.

Although the Cleveland Cavaliers haven't defeated the Orlando Magic in almost three years, they would appear to have an ideal opportunity to so Friday night.
Having picked up the pace over the last two weeks, the Cavaliers try to snap a 10-game losing streak to a struggling Magic team dealing with more than its fair share of injuries.
Though Cleveland (15-34) sits at the bottom...
Showtime is back in L.A., but it’s not with the Lakers, it’s with their little sister; the JV team of L.A. – the L.A. Clippers. The Los Angeles Clippers, not the Lakers, are the toast of the town.
Already without Chris Paul, the slumping Los Angeles Clippers could be in for an even rougher road ahead with Blake Griffin hurt, too.
They aren't likely to get much sympathy from the injury-plagued Orlando Magic.
With Griffin uncertain to be available for a second straight game, the visiting Clippers try to get back on track Wednesday night against a Magic team that's...
Last night's victory over the Orlando Magic was the least bit impressive.
The victory was not the night's biggest story; Thaddeus Young's injury was. Young suffered a left hamstring strain during second quarter of the Sixers 78-62 victory over the Magic. News came back, but Young did not.
