ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Grant Hill scored 21 points in his return from a three-game absence Sunday night as the Orlando Magic won its fourth straight, 87-79 over Boston.

Hill came back from the latest in his long line of maladies -- in this case a foot injury -- and was helped by 18 points from Dwight Howard.

Boston, losers of eight of its last 10, was led by Tony Allen with 21 points.

The Celtics were within six early in the fourth quarter, but Orlando went on a 9-2 run to regain control.
