ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Short at guard, the Orlando Magic turned to two unlikely sources to run the offense. Both responded brilliantly.
Hedo Turkoglu just missed a triple-double with 25 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds and Carlos Arroyo had 13 points, eight assists and only one turnover as the Orlando Magic beat the New York Knicks 118-92 on Saturday night.
The Knicks' loss was their 41st of this season assuring them their seventh straight season without a winning record. That streak is one shy of the longest in franchise history. New York had a .500-or-worse record in eight consecutive seasons from 1959-60 through 1966-67.
Crawford had 17 points in the first 15 minutes as New York opened the game 16-of-25 from the field. The Knicks led by as many as five in the second quarter before the Magic pulled away with a 13-0 run. Howard had six in the spurt and Lewis capped it with a 3-pointer that put Orlando ahead 62-49.
"Before you knew it, a five-point game had turned into a 14-point game," Isiah Thomas said of an early Knicks lead that quickly evaporated.
The Knicks were short-handed also, because Randolph was a late scratch. He took a few shots in pregame warmups, then went to the locker room with a sore right foot. He said someone stepped on it in New York's Friday night loss at Atlanta.
"The way the inactive list needs to be reported now, when Zach came back in and said he couldn't play we had already filled out the form," Thomas said.
Dooling (sprained left foot) and Nelson (strained hamstring, flu) were both hurt in the Magic's loss to Philadelphia on Wednesday, but Nelson's bigger problem was illness.
Without either, Van Gundy was forced to use Arroyo, who before Wednesday hadn't played in six previous games. Arroyo was Orlando's starter for a stretch a few months ago, but hadn't played double-digit minutes since Feb. 4.
"I still did my normal cardio and lifting weights and I was staying ready," Arroyo said. "It's been like this all season for the guards."
Orlando made good on almost all 10 Knicks turnovers for 18 points, while New York scored 10 on 12 Orlando turnovers.
