Shorthanded Magic too much for the 76ers

Spurs, Pacers win with extra efforts

Hedo Turkoglu scored 22 points, Dwight Howard added 21, and the shorthanded Orlando Magic rallied to beat the visiting Philadelphia 76ers, 115-111, last night. The Magic, missing Grant Hill with a bruised right wrist, trailed by 6 with 2:02 left to play after Allen Iverson's jumper.

Iverson finished with 38 points. Samuel Dalembert tied his career high with 24 points, and added a season-best 16 rebounds.

Jameer Nelson sparked the comeback with two steals, cashed in for three free throws, cutting the deficit to a point. Nelson had seven steals, one short of the franchise record, to go with his 12 points.

Orlando took the lead on Steve Francis's putback with 24.6 seconds to go. He had 14 points, nearly 8 below his average.

Bulls 100, Pistons 89 -- Kirk Hinrich had 24 points and nine assists, leading visiting Chicago. Richard Hamilton led all scorers with 32, including 16 in the first quarter, but only scored 7 in the second half. Hamilton was a game-time decision with a bruised right thigh.
