ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) _ Hedo Turkoglu nailed an off-balance
3-pointer with time expiring to lift the Orlando Magic to a 96-93
victory over the Kevin Garnett-less Boston Celtics.
It was Orlando's second home win over Boston this season, and
the Celtics' first game without Garnett.
Dwight Howard had 18 points and 16 rebounds for Orlando, and
Rashard Lewis scored 15.
Orlando nearly blew a 16-point second-half lead with a lousy
fourth quarter. The Celtics trailed 75-65 to open the period. They
then held Orlando scoreless nearly four minutes, and without a
field goal for more than five.
