Recap: LA Lakers vs. Orlando

Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Jordan Hill scored a career-high 28 points and pulled down 13 rebounds to help the Los Angeles Lakers post a 103-94 win over the Orlando Magic.

Nick Young added 26 points and Jodie Meeks finished with 13 points and six steals for the Lakers, who snapped a four-game losing streak.

"With 13 games left it is important to get on a little streak. When Jordan Hill plays this way we're better. We won one, we're on a roll," said Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni.

Victor Oladipo poured in 21 points and handed out 10 assists and Arron Afflalo scored 18 for the Magic, who have dropped nine straight.

"Too many turnovers on our part and they capitalized on them. We have to value each possession. Give Jordan Hill credit he was aggressive all night. Our goal is to be locked in on every single possession," said Magic coach Jacque Vaughn.

Orlando lost 10 straight games earlier this season.

LA held a 75-73 lead entering the final frame, but quickly pushed their spread to eight, 83-75, following a Young runner. Afflalo hit a 3-pointer and a midrange jumper to make it a three-point game, but the Lakers stretch their lead back to seven shortly thereafter.

A pair of Oladipo free throws with 3:49 left had Orlando within 91-87, but Young nailed a 3-pointer to spark an 8-0 burst. The Magic never got closer than six the rest of the way.

Orlando briefly took a 30-29 lead early in the second, but the Lakers led 55-48 at the break. LA led by as many as nine in the third, but the Magic were able to cut it to 75-73 entering the final frame.
