ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Nik Vucevic had 30 points and 21 rebounds and hit six free throws in the final 23 seconds to help the Orlando Magic hold on for a 98-90 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night.

The win was the Magic’s third in a row, and gives them their first three-game streak since December of last season.

Orlando led by as many as 19 points, before a run by Los Angeles in the third quarter.

Blake Griffin led the Clippers with 23 points and 13 rebounds, and Chris Paul added 18 points and 10 assists. Former Magic guard J.J. Redick also chipped in 17 points.

The loss ends a three-game win streak for the Clippers, whose three-game road trip continues Thursday at Miami.
