Magic beat Hawks for consecutive victories

By The Associated Press
ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- Arron Afflalo scored 20 points and the Orlando Magic beat the Atlanta Hawks 109-102 on Sunday night to give them back-to-back victories for just the third time this season.

Jeff Teague scored 22 points for the Hawks in their second game without two-time All-Star Al Horford, who is out indefinitely with a torn right pectoral muscle. The Hawks were also coming off three straight, grinding overtime games, the latest of which was Saturday night at home against Charlotte.

The Hawks made the game's first bucket, a 3-pointer, but then trailed until a spurt in the fourth quarter gave them a three-point lead. But a 9-0 run midway through the final quarter put Orlando in control for good.
