PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Rashard Lewis scored 19 points and hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 4.7 seconds left to lead the Orlando Magic to a 96-94 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night.

Lewis inbounded to Hedo Turkoglu, who took several dribbles down the lane before passing to Lewis on the left wing. Lewis drained the shot and the 76ers, without any timeouts left, could manage only Andre Miller’s 40-footer at the buzzer that came up short.

Dwight Howard had 21 points and 14 rebounds for the Magic (11-4), who shot just 12-for-35 in the second half and nearly surrendered a 12-point, first-half lead. Tony Battie had a season-high 20 points and Turkoglu added 10 for Orlando, which won for the seventh time in eight games.
