ORLANDO, Fla. – Hedo Turkoglu scored 20 points, Dwight Howard added 14 and the Orlando Magic rallied to beat the pesky Memphis Grizzlies 81-78 on Wednesday night.

J.J. Redick had all nine of his points in the fourth quarter to spark a 19-7 run, helping the Magic overcome an eight-point deficit and stay in the hunt for the Eastern Conference’s second seed. Orlando (58-20) began the day a game back of Boston for the East’s No. 2 spot.

Rudy Gay had 18 points, and Mike Conley and O.J. Mayo had 17 points apiece for the Grizzlies, who were held to just 15 points in the final period and have lost two straight games after winning four in a row.
