Default Clippers rout Pelicans as Danny Granger sits due to technicality

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

Granger could not play 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.
