Magic hold on to beat Celtics for second time, 105-103


Aaron Gordon had 28 points and 12 rebounds, and the Orlando Magic held off a late rally to beat the Boston Celtics 105-103 on Saturday night.


Jayson Tatum missed a jumper at the buzzer that would have tied it for the Celtics, who charged back from a nine-point deficit in the final 1:43 before losing to the Magic for the second time this season.


Kyrie Irving scored 25 points for the Celtics, 10 of them from the foul line in the final 4:31 as Boston made its late charge.


He appeared frustrated afterward with Gordon Hayward, who inbounded the ball on Boston's final possession.


Celtics: F-C Aron Baynes missed an 11th straight game with a fractured finger on his left hand.


Magic: Rookie C Mo Bamba, who missed a second game with a sore left foot, hopes to return by Wednesday.
