Howard scores 30 as Magic send Pacers to fourth straight loss

Sunday, March 11, 2012

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Dwight Howard had 30 points and 13 rebounds, and J.J. Redick added 18 points and a career-high nine assists as the Orlando Magic ran past the Indiana Pacers 107-94 on Sunday night.

The Magic played without starters Hedo Turkoglu and Jason Richardson, but seemed unfazed as they built a 20-point lead in the first half and got 30 points from their reserves.

Orlando has won four out of its last five, and also earned a 3-1 season series victory over Indiana.

Paul George led the Pacers with 22 points, Tyler Hansbrough added 19 and Danny Granger 18.

The Pacers lost their fourth straight game and will try to avoid their second five-game losing streak of the season Tuesday when they host Portland.
