CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Moritz Wagner scored a season-high 26 points, younger brother Franz added 19 points and the Orlando Magic beat the Charlotte Hornets 116-109 to snap a 10-game losing streak.

Gary Harris added 18 points for the Magic, who had not won since before Christmas.

Orlando trailed by three entering the fourth quarter, but took advantage of a cold-shooting Hornets team to open a 13-point lead with 2 minutes left punctuated by Moritz Wanger’s dunk — and flex — off a feed from Cole Anthony.

LaMelo Ball had 23 points and eight assists for the Hornets (23-20), who had their five-game win streak snapped.
