WASHINGTON (AP) -Hedo Turkoglu scored 13 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter to help the Orlando Magic beat Washington 94-82 on Saturday night, sending the Wizards to their first 0-3 start since 1992.
Washington led 67-64 entering the fourth quarter but shot 5-for-25 the rest of the way.
The Wizards trailed 76-75 with just under 6 minutes left, but then went the next 3 minutes without a point. Turkoglu, meanwhile, took over on offense for Orlando, scoring nine consecutive points, capped by a 3-pointer that put the visitors ahead 86-77 with 2:45 remaining.
Rashard Lewis scored all 18 of his points in the first half for Orlando, while Dwight Howard finished 17 points and 15 rebounds.
Gilbert Arenas made his first three shots, then went 2-for-12 the rest of the way to finish with 10 points. He finished 0-for-4 on 3-pointers, part of a 6-for-23 effort by Washington on 3s.
At least Washington finally made a 3-pointer, a night after setting an NBA record by going 0-for-16 from beyond the arc in a loss to the Boston Celtics.
Nets 93, 76ers 88
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Jason Kidd had a triple-double with 16 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists, and Richard Jefferson scored 22 points to lead the Nets over the 76ers.
Vince Carter added 18 points for New Jersey.
Andre Iguodala led the Sixers with 16 points, and Kyle Korver had 11 points and 11 rebounds.
Kidd thwarted a late Sixers rally with a 3-pointer from the left side to give the Nets an 86-80 lead. Kidd was dependable as he's always been for New Jersey, posting his 88th career triple-double and 50th with the Nets.
The Nets needed that kind of effort after they lost 106-69 on Friday night at home to Toronto.
