Recap


Magic 102, Timberwolves 93: Glen Davis scored 18 of his 28 points in the second half as host Orlando rallied from a 15-point deficit.

Davis shot 13-for-17 from the field and hit four clutch baskets in the final five minutes to seal the Magic's third straight win.

J.J. Redick added 18 off the bench for Orlando, which shot 53.7 percent and outscored Minnesota 53-32 in the second half. Nikola Vucevic chipped in 14 and 11 rebounds while Arron Afflalo contributed 13, including the go-ahead 3-pointer that gave the Magic an 88-87 lead with 5:42 remaining.

Kevin Love posted his ninth double-double by collecting 23 points and 15 rebounds. Nikola Pekovic also had a double-double as he added 19 and 12. Ricky Rubio was held without a point and had four assists in his second game back from knee surgery.

Minnesota led for most of the first half and stormed ahead with a 17-4 run that gave it a 61-49 lead at halftime. Love had nine points during that stretch and ended the half by hitting a 3-pointer with 0.8 seconds remaining.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Rubio logged 16:28 of court time and will not play Tuesday in Miami, giving him two days to rest for Thursday's contest against Oklahoma City. ... Orlando hit 6-of-14 3-pointers and is 11-4 when hitting at least five.  ... Love made seven of his first 10 shots and was 10-of-20 from the field. Minnesota, which had a four-game winning streak stopped, had not won five straight since December 2005.
