CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Magic coach Jacque Vaughn had been eagerly awaiting the return of Nikola Vucevic to his starting lineup. The 7-foot centre showed why Wednesday night. Vucevic had a double-double in the first half after missing the last four games with a sprained left ankle, Jameer Nelson had 12 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter and the Orlando Magic snapped a six-game losing streak with a 92-83 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats. Glen Davis added 17 points and 12 rebounds and Arron Afflalo chipped in with 16 points. "We needed this one," Davis said. "We needed it bad. We are a good team. We just all got to be healthy, you know what I mean? Look at what Nik did out there today. Weve been missing that. Its been tough for us in the paint. He loosens everything up for me, most definitely. Him being a factor out there, people have to guard him and also hes going to get rebounds and help us with fast-break points." Orlando had 36 points in the paint and outrebounded the Bobcats 52-41. The Magic scored 17 points off second-chance points, many of those rebounds kept alive by Vucevic. Vucevic, who was a game-time decision, finished with 12 points and 14 rebounds for his 10th double-double of the season. "Just overall you see rotation-wise, we were a little bit more concrete and had a little bit more flow to our rotations tonight," Vaughn said. "We had favourable matchups at different parts of the game, and when he can match up against Al Jefferson thats pretty good for us." Nelson came up with a big 3-pointer late for the Magic, and also had seven rebounds and six assists while outplaying opposing point guard Kemba Walker. The Magic led by four with just over a minute remaining in the game when Nelson knocked down a 26-footer from the top of the key to push the lead to 86-79. The Bobcats cut it back to five, but Nelson beat Walker on a drive for a layup to push the lead back to seven with 42 seconds left and essentially seal the victory. Seven Orlando players finished in double figures in scoring. "I think that is how we have to play," Vucevic said. "We dont really have a go-to guy on this team that is going to score 20 a game. You got to have a different guy scoring." The Bobcats shot 37 per cent in ending their two-game win streak. Jefferson led Charlotte with 10 points and 11 rebounds. Walker, who had 31 points against Stephen Curry on Monday night, was held to 10 points on 4-of-18 shooting. Orlando led 43-42 at the break behind a productive first half from Vucevic, who had 12 points and 11 rebounds while outplaying Jefferson inside. After going 13 straight games without giving up 100 points, the Bobcats second-ranked defence allowed 111 points to Golden State on Monday night in a four-point victory, prompting coach Steve Clifford to say tongue-in-cheek "we shut them down." While the Bobcats limited the Magic to 42 per cent shooting, they couldnt get their offence going and the ball wouldnt go down. Charlottes trio of Walker, Gerald Henderson and Jefferson were a combined 11 of 42 from the field. "I think our team for the most part all year our effort has been exceptional. Tonight our readiness from our starters was poor," Clifford said. "... We got outworked on the glass. We came in as the No. 1 rebounding team in the NBA and for whatever reason tonight didnt put the effort in, the physicality in, the things that are hard to do night in and night out. We didnt want to do it tonight and it cost us." The game featured a matchup of former Indiana Hoosiers with Cody Zeller taking on Victor Oladipo. Zeller finished with 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting and six rebounds, while Oladipo had 10 points on 5-of-10 shooting with four rebounds. "Its always fun playing against Victor and we seem to bring out the best in each other," Zeller said. NOTES: The Bobcats signed small forward Chris Douglas-Roberts earlier in the day, but he did not play. The team released James Southerland to make room on the roster. ... Afflalo has scored in double digits 21 times this year. ... Henderson has scored in double digits in 13 straight games. ... Walker has started 170 straight games for the Bobcats, tied for the third-longest streak in franchise history.

FUKUOKA, Japan -- Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan brushed off a fall and merely increased his lead in beating three-time world champion Patrick Chan of Canada at the Grand Prix Final on Friday. Hanyu, who had a 12-point lead after Thursdays short program, fell on his opening quad salchow but completed all of his other jumps, including seven triple jumps plus a quad toe loop in the free skate to eclipse Chan by 13 points. "I wasnt completely satisfied with the long program," Hanyu said. "But after falling on the quad I was able to pull myself together and complete all my jumps and that was huge." Chan also hit all his jumps, but he was unable to erase the deficit and finished with 280.08 points to Hanyus 293.25. Nobunari Oda of Japan, a late substitute for defending GP Final champion Daisuke Takahashi, was third with 255.96. "It was a good day and Im happy with how I skated," Chan said. "I felt nervous going into the long program. It was a mental battle even before I got on the ice." Beating Chan was a huge boost for Hanyus chances of being selected to represent Japan at the Sochi Olympics. "This is a huge step for Sochi," said Hanyu, who will turn 19 on Saturday. "I feel I am meeting all the requirements. We still have the national championships but obviously, I am feeling pretty confident." Chan said he wasnt disappointed with the result. "I finished the event strong," the Toronto skater said. "There was a lot of good things I did here, and that was regaining my composure and regaining my concentration after a bad short program and putting out a great long that I dont usually do. Its not very Patrick Chan of me. "Most of the time, I think people know me well that the short program has always saved me ... but I think today was proof that Im getting better and really becoming a more well-rounded competitor." He said his long skate was even more satisfying given his previous track record skating in Japan. "Honestly, I started thinking about my previous performances here in Japan, and I dont really have the best track record," he said. "The last two times I competed here has for the World Team Troophy, and I really havent skated well at every single one of those in Japan, just because its at the end of the season.dddddddddddd "Every time I come back to Japan I feel like I relive those moments where I didnt skate my best and those were really tough times. Thats why I think I learned a lot today." In ice dancing, world champions Meryl Davis and Charlie White of the United States led after the short dance with 77.66 points, seven-tenths of a point ahead of Tessa Virtue of London, Ont., and Scott Moir of Ilderton, Ont. "Overall it was strong," said Virtue. "Technically we got all the points we wanted which was our objective. We just have to go out and perform the same way in the free dance." Ekaterina Bobrova and Dmitri Soloviev of Russia stand third at 68.90 just ahead of Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje of Waterloo, Ont., at 67.68. "We captured the essence of the program," said Poje. "We didnt lose that uniqueness. We wanted to utilize the taps and the back and forth between the two of us." Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov of Russia were first after the pairs short program with 82.65. World silver medallists Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy of Germany were second with 79.46 while Qing Pang and Jian Tong of China were third on 75.40. Meagan Duhamel of Lively, Ont., and Eric Radford of Balmertown, Ont., totalled 73.07 and are fourth less than three points behind third spot. Kirsten Moore-Towers of St. Catharines, Ont., and Dylan Moscovitch of Toronto are sixth. "This is the type of skate weve been waiting for," said Radford. "After some rough short programs this season, this one gives us a lot of confidence." Moore-Towers and Moscovitch also came off the ice satisfied. "We cant do much better than a clean short," said Moore-Towers. "The best part was our energy. We felt comfortable and at home out there. It was fun and when we get to feel it that way, its enjoyable." The GP Final is the first and only event where most of the worlds top skaters will meet before the Sochi Olympics. The womens free skate and the ice dance and pairs free programs are scheduled for Saturday.
