[LOS ANGELES] — The Los Angeles Clippers played host to the Orlando Magic last night and the Clips did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 105-96 victory. The win bumps Los Angeles's record up to 27-14 on the season, while the loss drags Orlando's down to 16-24. Though a win's a win and Clippers fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.
On this night it was DeAndre Jordan leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 10 points, 20 rebounds, 1 assists, 3 blocks and 2 steals in 32 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Ask anybody, however - Jordan included - and the most important part is that the Clippers walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.
Though not quite able to steal the show, Nikola Vucevic did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Magic. Vucevic's 16 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.
Los Angeles's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Magic, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Clips will settle for the upper hand in this one.
Up next for the reeling Clips will be a date with the Los Angeles Lakers while the visiting Magic will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Portland Trail Blazers.

Vucevic 45.5 FP

It's not official yet, but it's no surprise that the Clippers were willing to offer Chris Paul $200M. They always wanted him for any price.
