SALT LAKE CITY (AP) _ Tobias Harris scored 22 points and Victor Oladipo had 20 to help Orlando outlast Utah and send the Jazz to their eighth loss in a row.

Harris made a 3-pointer from the corner and then converted a three-point play on a drive to give the Magic an 88-78 lead with 4:04 to play.

Drives and jumpers from Harris and Oladipo kept the Jazz at bay and gave the Magic their second victory in their last eight games.

Kyle O’Quinn scored 13 points, Ben Gordon had 12 and Channing Frye added 11 for the Magic, who close their road swing at Sacramento on Saturday with a chance to go 3-3 on the trip.

Derrick Favours led the Jazz with 21 points, 13 rebounds and a season-high five blocked shots. Enes Kanter had 16 points and Rodney Hood scored 15, but defence was again the problem for the reeling Jazz, who dropped their sixth straight at home.
