Magic 118, Knicks 92
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Dwight Howard had 26 points and 22 rebounds to help short-handed Orlando beat New York.
Howard thrived in the paint with the Knicks missing Zach Randolph, their second-leading scorer and top rebounder. Randolph took a few shots in pregame warmups, then went to the locker room because of a sore right foot. He said someone stepped on it in New York's Friday night loss at Atlanta.
Jamal Crawford had 23 points and seven assists for the Knicks.
Missing injured guards Jameer Nelson and Keyon Dooling, the Magic used only eight players until the last 4:50. Hedo Turkoglu had 25 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds and Rashard Lewis had 22 points and seven rebounds.
