Magic snap road losing streak

January 2, 2010
From AP wire reports

Rashard Lewis scored 21 points, and Matt Barnes added 17 to help the Orlando Magic snap a three-game road losing streak with a 106-94 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves Friday night.

Jonny Flynn led Minnesota with 23 points, Kevin Love added 17 points and 10 rebounds, and Al Jefferson had 14 points and 10 rebounds.

The Magic, who have won five of six overall, won despite below-average scoring from Vince Carter and Dwight Howard. The two entered the game averaging a combined 36.5 points, but Carter was held to 12 points and Howard had nine.

With Orlando's two leading scorers limited, the Magic relied on Barnes' energy plays and Ryan Anderson's three-point shooting.

Orlando, which leads the NBA with 10 made three-pointers per game, finished with 15 against Minnesota.
