Newark, NJ (Sports Network) - Dwight Howard had 20 points and 17 rebounds, but
the Orlando Magic may have made their biggest run of the game with him on the
bench Wednesday night in a 108-91 win over the New Jersey Nets.
Orlando beat New Jersey for the ninth straight time mostly on the strength of
a 24-12 run while Howard sat on the bench after getting in early foul trouble.
Glen Davis scored 12 of his 16 points during the surge, which gave the Magic a
20-point lead in the second quarter. Ryan Anderson had 14 points and nine
rebounds and Orlando moved to 10-3 in February after ending January on a four-
game losing streak.
The Magic have won 15 of their last 17 meetings with the Nets, who played
without forward Kris Humphries in this one because of a strained calf. It was
New Jersey's final game before the All-Star Break.
MarShon Brooks scored 24 points to lead the Nets, while Deron Williams added
23 points and eight assists. The Nets have lost 12 of their last 15 games.
