Back to Scores

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Evan Fournier scored 27 points to lead the Orlando Magic to a 110-106 overtime victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night at the Amway Center.

Aaron Gordon had 24 points and season-high 15 rebounds for Orlando. Nikola Vucevic added 22 points and a season-best 16 rebounds, and Jonathon Simmons scored 15 points.

Dennis Schroder led the Hawks with 26 points and added seven assists. Taurean Prince scored 19, rookie Tyler Cavanaugh 13 and Marco Belinelli 12.

Fournier left the game limping in the first minute of overtime after turning his right ankle when he landed on the foot of Vucevic after scoring with a driving layup.

Six players scored in overtime for the Magic. Elfrid Payton had a steal and scored on a breakaway for the 102-101 lead the Magic never relinquished.

Orlando (11-15) won despite making only 6 of 28 from 3-point range. Atlanta (5-19) was 11 of 27 from long distance.

Magic guard D.J. Augustin hit a 3-pointer with six seconds remaining to tie the score at 96, sending it into overtime when the Hawks failed to get off another shot before time expired.

The Hawks took a 96-93 lead when Schroder and Kent Bazemore each made free throws in the final 30 seconds of regulation.

The Magic went on a 9-0 run midway in the fourth -- including a three-point play by Gordon -- to tie the score at 86. They took their first second-half lead at 90-88 when Vucevic scored with 4:10 remaining.

The Hawks led 79-74 going into the fourth quarter despite Vucevic and Fournier each scoring 10 points in the third for the Magic.

The Hawks trailed by eight after the first quarter but led 52-44 at halftime, holding the Magic to 13 points and forcing seven turnovers in the second quarter.

Schroder had 10 points and four assists in the first half. Gordon had 12 points and seven rebounds for the Magic, who made only 1 of 9 3-point attempts in the first two quarters.

NOTES: Hawks C Miles Plumlee, who started his third consecutive game, had a marijuana possession charge against him in New York dismissed earlier this week. The charge stemmed from an August incident. Plumlee is starting because C Dewayne Dedmon missed his fourth consecutive game with a left tibia stress reaction. ... The Magic still were without G/F Terrence Ross (right knee injury) and rookie F Jonathan Isaac (sprained right ankle), who hasn't played since Nov. 11. ... The Hawks came in with their worst 23-game record since the 2004-05 season. ... The two teams play again Saturday in Atlanta, but not before the Hawks play Thursday in New York, and the Magic are home Friday against the Denver Nuggets.
