DALLAS (AP) – Dwight Howard had 23 points and 13 rebounds, and the Orlando Magic extended the NBA’s longest active winning streak to nine games with a 117-107 victory over the injury-depleted Dallas Mavericks on Saturday night.

Jason Richardson scored 20 points and Jameer Nelson had 16 for Orlando, which rallied from a 16-point, first-half deficit.

Hedo Turkoglu contributed 13 points and 17 assists, and Gilbert Arenas had 14 points for the Magic.

DeShawn Stevenson scored a season-high 24 points for the Mavericks, who were without top scorer Dirk Nowitzki for his career-high seventh straight game with a sprained right knee.
