Clippers end losing skid with 86-76 win over Magic

Sports | Updated: Wed, Feb 6, 2013

ORLANDO, Fla. — The Los Angeles Clippers know what it's like to take the floor without key players. A matchup with the equally hobbled Orlando Magic helped them rediscover what winning feels like. Eric Bledsoe had a career-high 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 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. "We were in a little slump," Bledsoe said. "We were in the games, playing good, playing tough, but we just couldn't finish the game. ... So it was a huge win for us."
