Magic ride 2nd-half run to 90-74 win over Pistons

ORLANDO, Fla. — Andrew Nicholson scored 15 points, Glen Davis had 11 points and 14 rebounds, and Orlando used a 21-0 run to open the third quarter to earn a 90-74 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night.

Orlando struggled to compete with Detroit's big men early, but used the big spurt to blow open the game. The surge included a more than 10-minute scoring drought by the Pistons.

Greg Monroe scored 19 points and Rodney Stuckey added 13 for Detroit, which connected on just 28 of its 85 field goal attempts for the night.

The Magic stopped a two-game losing streak. They continue a five-game homestand Friday against Cleveland.

The Pistons lost to the Magic for the second time in a week. They return home Friday to host Toronto.
