ORLANDO - Hedo Turkoglu had 27 points and 12 rebounds, Rashard Lewis scored 19 points and the Orlando Magic needed 12 consecutive points in the final quarter before pulling away and beating the undermanned Miami Heat 107-91 Wednesday night.

Dwight Howard scored 16 points with 13 rebounds and Maurice Evans added 13 points for the Southeast Division-leading Magic, who have won the last eight meetings between the Sunshine State rivals.

Ricky Davis scored 21 points and Luke Jackson and Chris Quinn added 14 apiece for the Heat, who fell to 9-35.

An 18-1 fourth-quarter run turned a close game into another Magic-Miami rout. In the teams' last four meetings at Orlando, the Magic have prevailed by an average of 23 points.

76ERS 112, BUCKS 69: Andre Iguodala scored 18 points and Andre Miller had 14 to lead Philadelphia to a victory, the 76ers' largest win in 12 seasons at the Wachovia Center.

Thaddeus Young scored 14 points for the Sixers, who won for only the fourth time in the last 15 games. Even with that abysmal record of late, Philadelphia still finds itself on the brink of a playoff spot.

RAPTORS 122, WIZARDS 83: Andrea Bargnani scored 19 points, Chris Bosh had 16 and Toronto used a big second quarter and a flurry of 3-pointers to beat Washington.

The 39-point margin of victory matched the biggest in team history, a 112-73 win against Atlanta on April 12, 2002.

Anthony Parker had 15 points and Jose Calderon added 11 points and 11 assists for the Raptors, who avenged a 108-104 overtime loss at Washington on Tuesday.

TIMBERWOLVES 83, BULLS 67: In an ugly offensive game, Al Jefferson and Ryan Gomes gave Minnesota more than enough.

Jefferson had 26 points and 20 rebounds and Gomes added 25 and 10 boards to help the Timberwolves to a victory.

After a horrendous start to the night on offense for both teams, the Wolves closed the third period with an 11-0 run and added a 15-6 spurt in the fourth to avenge a loss to the Bulls on Tuesday night.

WARRIORS 116, HORNETS 103: Stephen Jackson scored 26 points as Golden State snapped the Hornets' nine-game winning streak.

Former Hornets star Baron Davis hit six 3-pointers and finished with 23 points and nine assists for the Warriors, who shot 52 percent and made 13 3-pointers.

Chris Paul had 28 points and 12 assists for New Orleans, which lost for only the third time in 20 games.

NUGGETS 106, GRIZZLIES 102: Allen Iverson had 32 points and 12 assists, and Denver used a late run to beat Memphis.

Iverson made all six of his free throws in the final 23.2 seconds, helping the Nuggets snap a six-game road losing streak.

Rudy Gay led Memphis with 30 points and 10 rebounds, and Mike Miller contributed 22 points.

JAZZ 100, KNICKS 89: Deron Williams had 22 points and 12 assists for his fifth straight double-double, and Utah extended its winning streak to a season-high six games.

Carlos Boozer added 17 points and Mehmet Okur finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds for the Jazz, who haven't trailed in their last two games. All five Utah starters scored in double figures.

CAVALIERS: Forward Anderson Varejao will miss up to four weeks with a left ankle sprain, another loss for a team gaining momentum in the Eastern Conference.

Varejao sprained the ankle when he accidentally stepped on Sasha Vujacic's foot during a win Sunday against the Lakers.
