ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -Hedo Turkoglu and Rashard Lewis scored 20 points apiece and the Orlando Magic overcame Dwight Howard's foul trouble to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 98-88 on Thursday night.
With All-Star center Howard limited to only four minutes in the first half, the Magic got strong performances from Tony Battie and Lewis, who picked up the rebounding slack as Orlando won its third straight game.
Thaddeus Young scored 19 points for Philadelphia, which placed four players in double figures. The Sixers cut a 23-point deficit to six in the fourth quarter but couldn't draw closer.
Jameer Nelson added a season-high 16 points for the Magic.
