Nikola Vucevic had 28 points and 12 rebounds to lead Orlando past Minnesota 132-118, although the Magic played most of the second half without coach Steve Clifford, who left in the third quarter due to illness.

The Magic tweeted about Clifford's departure during the fourth quarter, saying the coach was being taken to a hospital for further evaluation. Assistant coach Tyrone Corbin took over in Clifford's absence.
