Knicks head into break with loss to Magic
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Nik Vucevic had 28 points and 18 rebounds, and the Orlando Magic held off the New York Knicks 89-83 on Wednesday night.
Victor Oladipo added 19 points and Willie Green 13 off the bench. It helped offset a third-quarter injury to starting forward Channing Frye, who left with a dislocated left index finger.
The victory stopped a two-game skid by the Magic. It also improved interim coach James Borrego's record to 2-2 since taking over for Jacque Vaughn, who was fired last week.
Jason Smith led the Knicks with 25 points.
New York struggled offensively throughout, scoring just 36 points in the second half.
The Knicks played without forward Carmelo Anthony, who sat out their final game before the All-Star break with of a sore left knee.
