SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Aaron Gordon had 20 points and 11 rebounds, and Victor Oladipo scored six of his 18 points during a 40-second stretch of the fourth quarter to help lead the Orlando Magic to a 107-100 win over the Sacramento Kings on Friday night.
Evan Fournier and Jason Smith scored 16 points apiece and C.J. Watson added 10 points and five assists to help the slumping Magic end their three-game losing streak.
Orlando wasted a 14-point lead in the first half and was up 89-81 with 8 minutes left to play when Oladipo took over. He made a deep jumper from just inside the 3-point line and followed it up with back-to-back dunks.
Gordon added four points down the stretch and Smith had six of his points late to help the Magic hold off the Kings.
Kosta Koufos had 19 points to lead Sacramento.
