ARRON Afflalo led the Magic with 20 points to help Orlando beat the Atlanta Hawks 109-102 on Sunday night (Monday, Manila time) to give them back-to-back victories for just the third time this season.
Jeff Teague added 22 points for the Hawks in their second game without two-time All-Star Al Horford, who is out indefinitely with a torn right pectoral muscle. The Hawks were also coming off three straight, grinding overtime games.
The Hawks made the game's first bucket, a 3-pointer, but then trailed until a spurt in the fourth quarter gave them a three-point lead. But a 9-0 run midway through the final quarter put Orlando in control for good.
