Dwight Howard had 28 points and 14 rebounds to lead six Magic players in double figures, and Orlando beat the Milwaukee Bucks 114-98 on Saturday.

The game was close until the Magic pulled away in the fourth quarter thanks to some hot 3-point shooting and dominant play from Howard.

Jason Richardson had 18 points for the Magic, while Hedo Turkoglu and Ryan Anderson chipped in 16 points apiece. The Magic shot 51.7 percent (14 of 27) from 3-point distance.

It was the Magic's fourth victory over the Bucks in 22 days. The Magic overcame fourth-quarter deficits in the first three wins, but they didn't need a comeback on Saturday night.

Brandon Jennings led Milwaukee with 27 points.
