Turkoglu's magic lost on Orlando


Turkoglu's magic lost on Orlando This wasn't quite the reception Hedo Turkoglu had hoped the Toronto Raptors would give his old friends and former Orlando teammates.

Jameer Nelson scored 30 points, while J.J. Redick added a career-high 27 to lead the Magic to a 125-116 win yesterday over Toronto, Turkoglu's first game against his former team since the July trade that landed him in a Raptors jersey.

"It was good to see them, but I wanted a different way to send them home," said Turkoglu, who helped the Magic to the NBA finals last season.

Chris Bosh had 35 points and 16 rebounds to top Toronto (1-2), while Andrea Bargnani finished with 26 points. Turkoglu, the key piece of a four-team, eight player trade in the off-season, added 19 points, and Jose Calderon finished with 10.

Dwight Howard had 24 points and 11 rebounds for the 3-0 Magic, who were playing without former Raptors star Vince Carter. Ryan Anderson finished with 20 points, while Matt Barnes had 12 points, nine boards and six steals.

The Magic had the hot hand from long-range, draining seven three-pointers in a first-quarter barrage en route to 17 in the game.

"If they're makings threes, we can switch up the game plan, but they had a lot of wide-open threes and that's what killed us," Bosh said. "I think it's just doing things with more energy and more aggression. We came out flat, we let them hit us first, and they hit a couple of threes. Next thing I know they're feeding it into Dwight, and then they get layups."
