Magic shut down 76ers in 2nd half, win 119-98, close on 8th

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) A little desperation went a long way for the Orlando Magic.

The Magic shut down the Philadelphia 76ers in the second half of a 119-98 victory on Monday night that moved them within a half-game of eighth place in the Eastern Conference.

"They were desperate. They played like it and we did not," said 76ers coach Brett Brown, whose team was held without a field goal for a second-half stretch of nearly 12 minutes. "Nik Vucevic is a really difficult matchup and (Evan) Fournier really had a fantastic night. Their desperation was evident."
