Magic stun Thunder
Tobias Harris slammed a two-handed dunk as time expired to give the Orlando Magic a 103-102 NBA triumph over the Oklahoma City Thunder yesterday morning (Singapore time).
The Thunder fell to 40-12, still the second-best record in the NBA, while the Magic remained the second-worst team in the league at 15-37.
NBA scoring leader Kevin Durant had a chance to stretch the Thunder's lead in the dying seconds but missed a jumper that was rebounded by Orlando's Victor Oladipo.
Oladipo flipped the ball to Maurice Harkless under the net and he threw the ball to Harris, who was trailing on the fast break and jammed the ball through the hoop just ahead of the final horn. - AFP.
