Orlando, Florida:

Jason Richardson scored 17 points, and Jameer Nelson and Hedo Turkoglu each added 14 as the Orlando Magic used a big second half to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 102-89 on Monday.

Richardson, coming off a season-high 31 points, was strong early against Minnesota but sat out the fourth quarter.

The Magic didn't need him, though, hitting 12 of 30 3-pointers for the game and with all five starters reaching double figures. Orlando have won two of their last three games and earned their seventh straight victory over the Timberwolves.

Kevin Love led Minnesota with 19 points and 15 rebounds, and Nikola Pekovic added 16 points and 13 rebounds.

Minnesota lost their fourth straight game, with their next opportunity to stop the skid coming Wednesday when they host Charlotte.
