Redick, Gortat score career highs as Magic wind up regular season with win

Five Magic players scored in double figures, led by JRedick with his career high of 18 pts (7 of 14 FGs, 4 of 8 3 pt FGs); RLewis 15 pts (5 of 10 FGs); MGortat a career high 12 pts (5 of 11 FGs), 11 rebs; HTurkoglu 11 pts (5 of 8 FGs); KBogans 10 pts (4 of 9 FGs). Arroyo added 11 asts.

The statistical breakdown:

FGs... ORL 41 of 88 (46.6%) WAS 36 of 76 (47.4%) ORL 94 WAS 76
3 PT FGs... ORL 12 of 30 (40%) WAS 4 of 16 (25%)
FTs... ORL 9 of 16 (56.2%) WAS 7 of 13 (53.8%)
REBs... ORL 43 (16 offensive) WAS 41 (11 offensive)
AST/TO... ORL 29/7 WAS 20/12
