Fournier, Gordon lead Magic to 119-96 rout over Pelicans

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) The Orlando Magic showed no mercy on an undermanned New Orleans team, routing the punchless Pelicans.

Evan Fournier scored 22 points and Aaron Gordon had 20 as the Magic took advantage of the Pelicans playing without All-Star Anthony Davis and beat New Orleans 119-96 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory.

Terrence Ross had 19 points and Nikola Vucevic added 15 points and 17 rebounds for the Magic, who had little trouble finding shots inside or outside against the defenseless Pelicans. Orlando is chasing Miami for the final spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
