Lewis layup sees Magic edge Celtics

Rashard Lewis' layup with 1.3 seconds remaining saw the Orlando Magic cap a rally from a 16-point deficit to beat the Boston Celtics 96-94 in the NBA on Thursday.
Lewis took the ball after a broken play and sprinted down the baseline past Kevin Garnett for an uncontested layup.
Rasheed Wallace missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer, giving the Magic their second victory in three games against the Celtics this season. Orlando moved level with Atlanta atop the Southeast Division.
Lewis led the Magic with 23 points, and Dwight Howard overcame early foul trouble to score 11 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter. He also had 10 rebounds.
Ray Allen had 20 points for Boston, whose Atlantic Division lead was cut to six games.
