The Orlando Magic held a 55-39 lead over the Philadelphia 76ers at halftime and nearly surrendered the lead at the start of the second half. The Sixers went on a run to pull close to the Magic, but Orlando settled in and got back to dominating Philadelphia. Dwight Howard had a poor night, by his standards, finishing with 17 points and 14 rebounds for the double-double, while Ryan Anderson led the Magic in scoring putting down 27 points on the back of seven three-point shots.
The 76ers made a run at the Magic in the third quarter, but they just couldn't do enough offensively. Lou Williams led the Sixers in scoring on the night with 21 points while Andre Iguodala picked up 15 points. Elton Brand ended the night with just 13 points, but he did a nice job defensively on Dwight Howard.
