Recap: Atlanta vs. Orlando

Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Arron Afflalo netted 10 of his game-high 26 points during a third-quarter surge that propelled the Orlando Magic to their first road win of the season with a 109-92 triumph over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday at Philips Arena.

The Hawks held a 63-58 edge with 7:24 left in the third before Afflalo finished back-to-back layups to spark a 21-6 swing that he capped with a three-point play that gave Orlando a 79-69 lead with 2:24 on the clock.

The Magic extended the margin to 85-73 by the end of the third and scored the first nine points of the fourth to build a comfortable 21-point cushion from which the Hawks couldn't come back.

Victor Oladipo and Andrew Nicholson each netted 18 points, while Nikola Vucevic donated 12 points and 15 rebounds for the Magic, who had lost their last 11 meetings with Atlanta.

"It felt good," Afflalo said. "We got contributions all over the board. I thought the chemistry was great."

Al Horford and Jeff Teague tallied 15 points apiece to lead Atlanta, which has dropped two straight games.

"They made a run and we couldn't really recover after that," Horford said of the momentum switching in the third. "We had some careless turnovers and I think that impacted the game there in the third quarter."

A back-and-forth first frame found Orlando clinging to a 26-25 lead before a Mike Scott 3-pointer just over three minutes in the second sparked an 11-2 Atlanta run that Horford capped with back-to-back jumpers for a 39-31 edge.

With the margin at seven shortly after, Afflalo finished a three-point play and then knocked down a triple on Orlando's next possession to bring the Magic within one with 4:29 left in the half.

However, the Hawks held Orlando without a field goal over the next 3 1/2 minutes and grabbed a 51-43 lead on Lou Williams' trey with 2:06 remaining.

Afflalo's triple with 50.4 seconds remaining halted Orlando's field-goal drought and helped the Magic get within 53-49 at the break.
