Rashard Lewis fell one assist shy of his first triple-double, finishing with 17 points and 10 rebounds in the Orlando Magic's 108-94 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night.
Lewis, who was suspended for the first 10 games of the season
for violating the league's substance abuse policy, didn't play in
the fourth quarter, which the Magic started with an 88-58 lead
His performance helped Orlando overcome the loss of starting
point guard Jameer Nelson, who underwent arthroscopic surgery
Wednesday to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. Nelson is
expected to miss four to six weeks.
Vince Carter added 18 points and Dwight Howard had 11 points and
10 rebounds for the Magic, who put six players in double figures
and won their third straight game.
