INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Dwight Howard
recorded his 195th career double-double (24 points, 12 rebounds) Saturday when Orlando beat the Indiana Pacers 121-115.
Hedo Turkoglu had 23 points, five rebounds and eight assists. Rashard Lewis scored 19, while Keith Bogans, Maurice Evans and Carlos Arroyo all scored 16 for the Magic -- who won their fourth game in a row while breaking a four-game losing streak at Indiana's Conseco Fieldhouse.
A big 36-25 third quarter was enough to quell Indiana's continued determination and led to a 94-85 lead entering the fourth.
Danny Granger led Indiana with 29 points and five rebounds. Mike Dunleavy had 19 points, seven rebounds and five assists.
Troy Murphy had 17 points and six rebounds. Kareem Rush scored 13 and Shawne Williams 12 for the Pacers, who held a 60-58 halftime advantage but finished with their sixth straight loss.
