Orlando, FL (Sports Network) - Dwight Howard had 28 points and 16 rebounds and the Orlando Magic snapped a two-game losing streak Wednesday with a 103-93 win over the Phoenix Suns. Ryan Anderson scored a game-high 29 points for the Magic and Glen Davis added 16 off the bench. Howard and Anderson scored almost as many points as the entire team did during an 85-59 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Monday, which started the Magic's three-game homestand off on a sour note. Jared Dudley scored 17 points and Robin Lopez added 14 for the Suns, who lost their second straight and fell two games back of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Final Score: New York 82, Philadelphia 79

Jrue Holiday paced Philadelphia with 16 points while Jodie Meeks, Lou Williams and Andre Iguodala each netted 13 in the loss. Elton Brand had a 12-point, 12- rebound double-double in the defeat, the Sixers' fourth in their last five games.
