Jason Richardson was among six Orlando players in double figures with 14 points. He hit four 3-pointers to help the Magic finish 15 of 25  from beyond the arc.

Lou Williams scored 21 points to pace the Sixers, who trailed by as many as 17 points in the first quarter but were within 66-62 midway through the third and trailed 79-70 entering the final 12 minutes.

Orlando led by nine points with just over three minutes to play before putting away the Sixers with consecutive 3-pointers by Anderson and Richardson.

The Magic, getting 11 quick points from Anderson, bolted to an early 23-6 with just under five minutes to play in the opening quarter.

GAME NOTEBOOK
: Shaquille O'Neal, who bolted the Magic for the Los Angeles Lakers via free agency, doesn't want Orlando center Howard to follow in his footsteps. Citing the growth of the Orlando area, O'Neal said it would be a "travesty" if Howard leaves when he becomes a free agent after the season. ... The Sixers acquired a piece of their history by obtaining the court on which Wilt Chamberlain registered his historic 100-point game in 1962.
