Tobias Harris and Nik Vucevic each scored 25 points to propel the Orlando Magic to a 102-94 win over Portland.

Elfrid Payton added 19 points and Victor Oladipo scored 15 points and had six assists for the Magic, who won their third straight game.

CJ McCollum led Portland with 29 points. Damian Lillard added 17 points and 10 assists, and Al-Farouq Aminu had 16 for the Trail Blazers.

Orlando started the fourth quarter with a 74-68 lead and forced the Trail Blazers into four turnovers and two missed shots in the first three minutes. Oladipo scored five straight and Evan Fournier added a driving layup to push the Magic lead to 81-68 with 9:31 to play.

Portland failed to close the gap until it hit four straight 3-pointers to cut the deficit to 100-94 on Aminu's 3 with 1:01 to play. However, McCollum missed another 3-pointer on the next possession and the Magic were able to hang on from there.
