Philadelphia 76ers fall to Orlando Magic

In an overtime victory, Pat Garrity opened with consecutive 3-pointers and scored a season-high 24 points, Hedo Turkoglu had 25, and the Magic beat the Sixers 119-115 Thursday night for their season-high fifth straight win.

What's more, Keyon Dooling sank the go-ahead free throws with 1:08 left in overtime and had 18 points. Dwight Howard had 22 to help Orlando run off its longest winning streak since it won six straight in 2002. The Magic got their second straight victory after losing their previous eight.

It's important to notice that Allen Iverson scored 38 points and had 15 assists, and Chris Webber used a big second half to finish with 32 points and 11 rebounds for the Sixers, who had their three-game winning streak snapped.
