MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Evan Fournier scored 22 points, Aaron Gordon added 19 and the Orlando Magic held on to beat the Memphis Grizzlies, 101-99, on Wednesday (Thursday, Manila time).

The Magic held the lead through much of the fourth quarter before a rally keyed by Tyreke Evans, who finished with 32 points for Memphis, tied it at 97 with 1:45 left on Marc Gasol's basket.

A 3-pointer from Gordon with 52 seconds remaining put the Magic ahead for good and Memphis missed long-range jumpers from Mario Chalmers and Dillon Brooks in the final 20 seconds.

Gasol had 22 points and nine rebounds.
