CHICAGO – Hedo Turkoglu hit a fadeaway jumper with seven-tenths of a second left in overtime, and the Orlando Magic beat the Chicago Bulls 112-110 Monday.

The Bulls lost for the first time in three games since Jim Boylan became interim head coach following the firing of Scott Skiles.

After Chicago’s Ben Gordon hit a tying 3 with 6.7 seconds left, Turkoglu made a shot over Ben Wallace. The Magic’s fourth win a row was secure when Wallace missed from midcourt at the buzzer.

Dwight Howard had 17 points and 22 rebounds for Orlando. He also blocked five shots and made three steals, including a key swipe from Gordon late in the fourth quarter.

Turkoglu, who missed a shot in the closing seconds of the fourth quarter, finished with 17 points.

Gordon led Chicago with 39 points and Luol Deng added 19. Kirk Hinrich finished with 10 points and 10 assists before fouling out in the fourth quarter.

The Magic trailed 107-106 in overtime, but Jameer Nelson beat Chris Duhon for an easy layup with 26.9 seconds left. Keith Bogans made two free throws to put Orlando ahead 110-107.

Nelson scored 22 points and Rashard Lewis had 19. Carlos Arroyo and Bogans each had 14 for the Magic.

Orlando trailed 96-93 with 1:08 left in the fourth quarter before Nelson made one of two foul shots. Howard then stole the ball from Gordon, leading to two free throws by Nelson that made it 96-all with 36.5 seconds left.

After Gordon missed a shot with 13 seconds left, the Magic had a chance to win in regulation. Turkoglu missed in the lane and Howard also missed with a tip at the buzzer.

The Bulls led 55-48 at halftime behind Gordon’s 15 points. Howard recorded his NBA-high 29th double-double by the break with 10 points and 13 rebounds.

Notes: Nelson came off the bench after missing Sunday’s game against the Bobcats with a strained back.
