LOS ANGELES (AP) - Chris Paul had 21 points and eight assists, Blake Griffin added 20 points before both All-Stars sat out the fourth quarter, and the Los Angeles Clippers breezed to a 108-76 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night.

Nine-year veteran Danny Granger did not make his debut with the Clippers because of a technicality on the team's active list, which is signed by coach Doc Rivers before every game and relayed to the officials.

Granger's name was printed by hand by a member of the public relations staff under the heading: "Updated Roster Additions," but the number on the sheet was not circled along with the other active players by the required deadline of 6:30 p.m. local time, which is mandatory.

As a result, referee Bill Spooner ruled Granger ineligible and instructed him to change back into street clothes.
