Paul leads Clippers past Magic in OT, 107-102

BY KYLE HIGHTOWER Associated Press Published:

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Chris Paul scored 29 points, including 11 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, and the Los Angeles Clippers slipped by the Orlando Magic 107-102 on Monday night.

Blake Griffin and Chauncey Billups each added 18 points for the Clippers.

The Clippers have won six of the last seven games and snapped a nine-game losing streak to the Magic. But they may have lost Billups for an extended period after he slipped and left in the fourth quarter with a left Achilles injury.

Dwight Howard had 33 points and 14 rebounds, and Jason Richardson 20 points for the Magic.

Orlando's loss ends a three-game win streak. It came as point guard Jameer Nelson returned to the lineup after missing five consecutive games with concussion symptoms, but had 15 points and 12 assists.
