Orlando, FL (Sports Network) - Andrew Nicholson scored a career-high 15 points
and the Orlando Magic used a dominant third quarter to deliver a 90-74 victory
over a poor-shooting Detroit Pistons team at the Amway Center.
The Magic put together a 21-0 tear to begin the second half, turning a 3-point
deficit into a comfortable lead before cruising towards only their second win
in their last nine tries. That other triumph also came at the expense of the
Pistons, a 110-106 decision over Detroit last Friday.
Nicholson made good on 7-of-9 field goal attempts and Arron Afflalo added 12
points for Orlando, which also received a double-double from Glen Davis in the
form of 11 points and a season-best 14 rebounds.
Detroit shot a woeful 10 percent (2-for-20) in the fateful third quarter and
32.9 percent for the game en route to its 10th defeat in 12 games this season.
Greg Monroe led all players with 19 points, but netted just four after
