Cade Cunningham led Detroit with 21 points, and Killian Hayes had 16 points and seven rebounds.

Cole Anthony added 16 points and six assists for the Magic. They shot 55.1% in winning for the 10th time in 12 games.

The Magic had a 14-0 run to take a 28-21 lead late in the first quarter. Gary Harris started the run with a steal and layup, and Joe Ingles finished it with a 3-pointer.

Franz Wagner scored his first six points in a 10-0 spurt midway through the second quarter to help push Orlando's lead to 15.
