Celtics fall to Magic

ORLANDO -- Tobias Harris scored 18 points, including two free throws with 10.1 seconds left to snap a tie, and host Orlando held on to halt a 10-game losing streak, 93-91 on Sunday.

Arron Afflalo recorded 20 points and matched a career high with 13 rebounds while Glen Davis scored 17 for the Magic, who did not allow Boston to get off a shot in the final seconds. Jameer Nelson added 16 points and 10 assists for Orlando, which beat the Celtics for the first time in 11 games.

Jeff Green led the way with 22 points, including 13-of-15 at the foul line, as Boston lost for the 11th time in 12 games. Kris Humphries tied his season high with 18 points and added 12 rebounds while Avery Bradley scored 18 for the Celtics.

Humphries scored eight during a 13-0 run that gave Boston a four-point lead before Orlando countered with nine of the last 12 for a 66-64 edge after three. Green's basket tied it at 91 with 33 seconds left, but Harris was fouled on the rebound of Nelson's missed shot to allow him to score the winning points.

The Celtics led by as much as 11 before Kyle O'Quinn scored seven points in the final three minutes to pull Orlando within 26-18 after one quarter. Harris and Afflalo finished with 10 points each in the opening half as the Magic scored 13 of the last 18 to take a 53-46 edge at intermission.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Boston G Rajon Rondo had six points on 3-of-10 shooting with six rebounds and four assists in his second game since returning from knee surgery. … Nelson played his 621st game for the team, tying Dwight Howard for second on the franchise's all-time list. … O'Quinn added 10 points and nine rebounds off the bench as the Magic won for the first time without C Nikola Vucevic in the lineup this season (1-12). Vucevic, the team's leading rebounder, is currently out with a concussion.
