Magic win for 3rd time in 20 games, beat Celtics 103-95

BOSTON (AP) After a near-miss in their last game, the Orlando Magic were rewarded for another solid effort.

Elfrid Payton had 22 points and the Magic won for just the third time in their last 20 games, overcoming Kyrie Irving's 40 points to beat the Boston Celtics 103-95 on Sunday.

"It feels good to get a win, especially after playing well," Payton said. "We felt we played well against the Cavs and didn't come out with the victory. So to get the win today feels good."
