ORLANDO, Fla. -- During the Magics recent struggles one of the few constants has been the offence provided by Arron Afflalo. The veteran provided another reminder of why hes so indispensable for a young team trying to find itself. Afflalo scored 23 points to lead five Orlando players in double-figures and the Magic snapped a three-game losing streak with a 109-92 win over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night. Orlando led the Pistons by as many as 22 points and cruised in the fourth quarter. Afflalo said the victory was one of the most complete efforts the Magic have posted in recent memory. "Its good to get a win at home for once," said Afflalo, who has scored at least 20 points in five straight outings. "I dont think weve won here this month. It was pretty impressive defensively. I thought the bigs did a great job trying to fight their bigs all night rebounding. I thought we shared the ball throughout the game, made the right play. "When we play like that I think were pretty good." The Magics leading scorer this season, Afflalo played eight minutes of the third quarter after lightly turning his left ankle. But after coming out of the game briefly, he was able to finish the period -- scoring six points -- before resting in the fourth. "The ankle, its one of those things where if you can fight through it, you go ahead and play," he said. The victory halted a five-game home losing streak for the Magic, who hadnt won at the Amway Center since the day before Thanksgiving. Nik Vucevic added 20 points and 11 rebounds, and rookie Victor Oladipo finished with 16 points and a career-high 11 assists. Magic coach Jacque Vaughn thought Fridays effort was sparked by what he called a surprisingly "intense" practice for this time of year. "That has to be our signature -- we have to come to work," he said. "I always tell them I dont know what results thats going to lead to wins and losses-wise, but you can look yourself in the mirror and appreciate what you do for a living, and your teammates appreciate you when you come to work." Brandon Jennings had 21 points and Will Bynum added 18 for the Pistons, who had a streak of three consecutive road victories ended. "From the start of the game, we just couldnt get anything going. We got a couple stops in the third quarter, but we couldnt score, and it just kept going downhill from there," Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks said. "We couldnt get anything going offensively, they pushed the ball down our throat defensively, and then we didnt make any shots." The Pistons, who claimed eight of their 14 wins on the road, never found a flow on offence. They shot 41 per cent for the game, and were outscored in the paint 58-48. "We had no sense of urgency and we didnt muster energy at all tonight," Jennings said. "Its got to be a collective unit to try to get it back together, but we didnt have it tonight." In some of their recent losses Orlando had started fast, only to fall apart late in the games. The Magic jumped out to another early lead, but this time were able to sustain it with a variety of scoring bursts that kept the Pistons playing catch up for most of the night. Orlando hovered over 50 per cent shooting throughout and carried a 19-point lead into the fourth quarter. The Magic carved out their early advantage shooting 56 per cent in the opening 24 minutes to take a 55-48 lead into halftime. Glen Davis had eight points in less than five minutes and then yielded to Afflalo, who finished the half with 12 points. Oladipo and Tobias Harris each added 10 points. Afflalo said theres no secret to what it will take for the Magic to have another "good night" like Friday. "Just get after it, man. Theres no mystery," he said. "We know what we need to do -- same focus, same effort. It starts with our preparation in shootaround, our intensity, attention to detail. And keeping our foot on the gas pedal." NOTES: The Magic improved to 5-6 when they score 100 or more points. ...

The Coyotes have recorded wins this week against Edmonton and Anaheim, marking the second time the club has posted consecutive victories since a season-high three-game winning streak from Nov. 2-7. After earning a 5-1 road victory over the Oilers on Tuesday, Arizona used a fluky goal to take Saturdays 2-1 shootout win over the visiting Ducks. Shane Doan broke his stick, but was the only skater to score in a four-round shootout. The blade of Doans stick snapped off as he fired a shot at Frederik Andersen, who got a piece of the splintered wood with his shoulder but whiffed on the puck as it trickled past his left pad and inside the goal post. After Devan Dubnyk stoned Ryan Getzlaf at the other end to seal the win, Doan was all smiles. I think thats the old exploding stick trick, he told a TV reporter on the ice after being named the top star. Zbynek Michalek scored his first goal of the season for the Coyotes, who got their fourth win in the last 14 games (4-8-2). Dubnyk made 36 saves, including 18 in the third period. Arizona has won two in a row at home after dropping nine straight and is 6-8-3 in the desert this season. The Coyotes will visit Dallas on Wednesday before returning to Gila River Arena for a six-game homestand that begins Saturday against Columbus. While the Coyotes are shooting for a third straight win, the Flyers are hoping to rebound after having a three-game winning streak hallted with Saturdays loss in Nashville.dddddddddddd Philadelphia had opened its epic eight-game road trip with three straight wins before losing a 4-1 decision to the Predators. The setback dropped the Flyers to 6-10-3 as the guest this season. In Nashville, the Flyers were facing former head coach Peter Laviolette for the first time since he was fired just three games into the 2013-14 season. Laviolettes new club dominated the Flyers in the special teams battle, converting three of five power-play opportunities while killing off all four of Philadelphias chances with the man advantage. Nashville cashed in when Matt Read and Claude Giroux were sent off 26 seconds apart in the latter portion of the second period for the Flyers. The Predators scored twice in a span of 38 seconds to go up by a 3-1 count. We cant put ourselves in that position, Giroux said of the 5-on-3 disadvantage. Giroux provided the lone for the Flyers, who were trying to win four straight for the first time this season. Ray Emery surrendered three goals on 37 shots in defeat. Philly is hoping No. 1 netminder Steve Mason can return to the crease tonight after missing the last four games with a back injury suffered in practice on Dec. 20. He returned to practice on Saturday and could see his first action since Dec. 18 in tonights clash with the Coyotes. The Flyers are facing Arizona for the first time since they notched a 5-3 win in the desert on Jan. 4 of last season. It was Philadelphias second straight win at Gila River Arena and the clubs third victory in the last four meetings with the Coyotes. ' ' '
