Hornets fall short against Magic
MAR 04, 2013 8:49p ET
Jameer Nelson, returning from a left knee injury that sidelined him six games, scored 15 points and Tobias Harris also scored 15 for Orlando, which trailed by as many as 17 points in the second half and erased nine-point deficit during the final 3:15.
With 12 seconds left and Orlando leading 104-102, Afflalo missed his second of two free throws, but Harris got the offensive rebound and hit one of two free throws with 10.6 seconds left.
The Hornets then struggled to set up a clean shot, and Greivis Vasquez's off-balance 3 missed badly.
Anthony Davis had 17 points, 15 rebounds and four blocked shots for New Orleans. Vasquez and Eric Gordon each added 17 points.
