Philadelphia — Blake Griffin scored 26 points, Chris Paul added 25 points and 13 assists, and the short-handed Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 94-83 Monday night.

DeAndre Jordan had 11 points and a season-high 21 rebounds, and Jared Dudley scored 10 points for the Clippers, who won their second straight. The Clippers are 2-1 on a season-high tying seven-game road trip.

Los Angeles played without guards J.J. Redick (injuries to right hand and wrist), Reggie Bullock (sprained left ankle) and Maalik Wayns (left knee). Forward Matt Barnes is out with a torn retina in his left eye.

Bobcats 115, Warriors 111

Charlotte, n.c. — Kemba Walker scored 27 of his 31 points in the second half, and the Charlotte Bobcats ruined Stephen Curry’s homecoming with a wire-to-wire victory.

Curry overcame a slow start to finish with a season-high 43 points, 32 of those coming in the second half.

Curry, a Charlotte native who burst on the national scene while playing at nearby Davidson College, scored 19 points in the fourth quarter, including a 27-footer with a hand in his face to cut the Bobcats’ lead to 111-109 with 11 seconds left.

But the Warriors (12-10) couldn’t contain Walker, and the point guard hit four free throws in the final 11 seconds to seal the victory.

Nuggets 75, Wizards 74

Washington — Wilson Chandler scored 17 points, Nate Robinson added 16, and Kenneth Faried had a key block and transition dunk with 33 seconds left to lift Denver over Washington.

Washington had three possessions after Faried put Denver ahead, but John Wall missed a layup, Trevor Ariza missed a 3-pointer, Chandler blocked a layup try by Garrett Temple, and Robinson stripped the ball from Wall in the closing seconds.

Chandler also had eight rebounds to help the Nuggets rally from 12 points down in the second half, and Robinson helped the Denver reserves outscore their depleted Washington counterparts 34-5.

Grizzlies 94, Magic 85

Memphis, Tenn. — Zach Randolph had 19 points and 12 rebounds, and Jon Leuer added 16 points and a career-best 12 boards to lead the short-handed Memphis Grizzlies over Orlando.

Mike Conley had 13 points and Jerryd Bayless finished with 11 points, including a late 3-pointer to preserve the win and end a two-game slide. Conley also had seven assists.

Andrew Nicholson and Jameer Nelson led the Magic with 19 points apiece. Nicholson also grabbed 11 rebounds while hitting 8 of 12 from the field. Arron Afflalo scored 17 points, Glenn Davis finished with 16 and Victor Oladipo added 10 in Orlando’s sixth straight loss.

The Magic reserves managed only four points — all from Jason Maxiell. Leuer led the Memphis reserves, who scored 38 points.

Memphis held a 14-point lead with just over 7 minutes left, but had to weather a final push from the Magic.
