ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Terrence Ross scored 13 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter and the Orlando Magic beat Indiana 107-100, handing the Pacers their fourth straight loss Thursday night.

Nikola Vucevic added 17 points and 10 rebounds for Orlando after being selected to the All-Star team for the first time. D.J. Augustin’s 20 points for the Magic included nine free throws in the final 1:26.

Orlando broke a four-game losing streak and snapped an eight-game skid against Indiana.

Myles Turner had 27 points and seven rebounds for the Pacers, who have not won since losing All-Star guard Victor Oladipo to a knee injury. Bojan Bogdanovic added 21 points for Indiana.

Ross came off the bench and shot 11 of 18, including five 3-pointers. He made three steals in the fourth quarter.

Vucevic scored six points while the Magic were taking an 11-0 lead. The Pacers erased that deficit quickly, but never went ahead until Darren Collison drove for a layup and three-point play with 9:56 left in the third quarter. That came during a 17-4 run in which Turner scored 10 points, lifting Indiana to a 65-57 lead, its largest of the game.

Ross converted two straight steals into points to pull Orlando back in front early in the fourth, and Vucevic’s basket put the Magic ahead for good at 91-89.

HONORED

Vucevic was chosen as an Eastern Conference reserve, becoming the Magic’s first All-Star since Dwight Howard in 2012. Vucevic entered averaging 20.7 points and 12 rebounds per game.
