ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Arron Afflalo had 30 points and Maurice Harkless added 20 points and eight rebounds as the Orlando Magic got their first win of the season, hammering the New Orleans Pelicans 110-90 on Friday night.
Anthony Davis led winless New Orleans with 26 points and 17 rebounds, while Jrue Holiday added 17 points and five assists.
Orlando seized control in the second quarter when Harkless scored 12 points and the Magic limited New Orleans to 6-of-21 shooting on their way to a 53-35 halftime lead.
The Pelicans cut the deficit to 62-48 on a spectacular dunk by Davis off a lob from Holiday early in the third quarter, but that was as close as they got.
Afflalo, who had 15 points in the third quarter, led Orlando on a 13-3 run that he ended with a 3-pointer. The guard was 4 for 5 on 3-pointers, all in the second half, as Orlando built leads as big as 30 points.
