It was the Hornets' 12th straight win over the Magic.
ATLANTA (AP) — Dwight Howard insists he holds no grudges against the Atlanta Hawks and coach Mike Budenholzer.
They traded him to Charlotte after one forgettable season, but Howard, in his 14th season and with his third team in three years, believes it made him a better player.
"It motivated me to just come back this season with a different mindset," he said. "Play with more confidence and stuff like that, so thank you, Bud."
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Dwight Howard and the Charlotte Hornets needed a win heading into the All-Star break.
So it was perfect timing for a trip to Orlando.

PHOENIX (AP) — Credit the Charlotte Hornets' bench for the team's biggest comeback victory of the season.
The reserves ignited a 20-2 run to start the fourth quarter and Charlotte rallied from a 21-point second-half deficit to beat the Phoenix Suns 115-110 on Sunday.
"They did an amazing job," the Hornets' Dwight Howard said. "MCW (Michael Carter-Williams), Treveon Graham, just that whole second unit, their defense was great, their offense was amazing and I think that's what won us the game."
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Kemba Walker likes the Charlotte Hornets' chances with Dwight Howard altering shots in the lane.
Walker scored 29 points and made two key 3-pointers down the stretch that helped Charlotte beat the Atlanta Hawks 121-110 on Friday night.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Dwight Howard lost control of the ball on his way in for an apparent dunk when he was fouled from behind by Zach Randolph. As Howard tried to regain his footing, the ball floated about 3 feet above the rim and then fell straight back down and through.
"I don't know how it went in," Howard said with a grin.
On a night when Charlotte set season highs in several offensive categories, Howard's play was symptomatic of just how good things were going for the struggling Hornets.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Hornets swingman Nicolas Batum will miss a minimum of six to eight weeks with a left elbow injury.
The team announced that an MRI on Thursday revealed the nine-year NBA veteran tore his ulnar collateral ligament in his non-dominant arm in the first quarter of Charlotte's preseason road contest against the Pistons on Wednesday.
The Hornets have not decided if Batum will need surgery or will attempt to rehab the injury.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Hornets second-year forward Frank Kaminsky said his biggest problem on the court has been letting go of the past.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Just before the first-quarter buzzer sounded, Nicolas Batum heaved up a long shot. The 29-foot toss banked off the glass and fell through the net.
That was when the Charlotte Hornets knew things were going their way Monday.
Kemba Walker scored 28 points, Batum added 21, including that improbable 3-pointer, and the Hornets beat the Indiana Pacers 100-88.
DENVER (AP) — With Frank Kaminsky out, the Charlotte Hornets needed someone to step up at the end of a long road trip.
It ended up being a journeyman playing on his third 10-day contract of the season.
Johnny O'Bryant scored a career-high 15 points against his former team to supplement Kemba Walker's 27, and Charlotte beat the Denver Nuggets 112-102 on Saturday night.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Since returning from knee surgery last month, a healthy Blake Griffin has been on quite a tear.
His performance Sunday night was the most impressive yet.
Griffin scored a season-high 43 points and added 10 rebounds and five assists as the Los Angeles Clippers held off the Charlotte Hornets 124-121 in overtime.
"He's played like he's on a mission," teammate J.J. Redick said. "I don't know what that mission is, but he's been dominant. That's as good as I've seen him play."
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — A strong bench made up for a shaky start for the Los Angeles Clippers.
Blake Griffin had 20 points and 12 rebounds, Austin Rivers scored 16 of his 18 points in the second half and the Clippers beat the Charlotte Hornets 107-102 on Saturday night.
Griffin finished two assists shy of his second triple-double in his past three games. Jamal Crawford provided a spark off the bench, scoring 22 points while going 5 for 8 on 3-pointers.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Someone's streak was going to continue Tuesday. The Charlotte Hornets were simply happy it wasn't them as they snapped a seven-game losing streak and held onto a 111-107 victory over the Brooklyn Nets.
Charlotte (24-28) had not won since a Jan. 21 triumph over Brooklyn. The Nets (9-43) dropped their 10th straight, and still have not won since a Jan. 20 victory at New Orleans.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Nicolas Batum says there is an art to drawing a foul on a 3-point shot.
"It's not easy," Batum said with a wide smile.
Batum twice drew whistles on 3-pointers en route to a season-high 28 points in the Charlotte Hornets' 123-112 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Batum was a regular at the foul line Wednesday night, converting 13 of 15 free throws. As a team, the Hornets made 40 of 49 foul shots to snap a two-game losing streak.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Nicolas Batum isn't sure what has been happening in third quarters lately for his Charlotte Hornets, though he'd like to bottle it up for whenever it's needed.
"We're just really good," Batum said. "If we could start the game the same way we start the third quarter, we'd be a really, really good team."
Thanks to another dominating third quarter Thursday night, Charlotte beat the Miami Heat 91-82.
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Nicolas Batum's teammates are well aware of how talented he is. Now, opponents are taking notice, too.
Batum could have had his second triple-double in a week Wednesday night, but the Charlotte Hornets didn't need him in the fourth quarter of a 120-101 rout against the Orlando Magic.
Charlotte won its fourth in five games as Batum had 20 points, nine rebounds and eight assists in just under 30 minutes.
NEW YORK (AP) — Randy Foye might not even have been in the game if not for Jeremy Lin's injury.
The Brooklyn Nets were lucky he was.
Foye made a 3-pointer to beat the buzzer and give the Nets a 120-118 victory over the Charlotte Hornets on Monday night.
The Nets overcame the loss of Lin and a 14-point deficit in the third quarter to stop a five-game losing streak. Foye played a little with Lin in the first half, then was on the floor the entire fourth quarter after the point guard exited.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — After watching the Los Angeles Lakers set a season high in points in a half, knock down 12 of 18 3-pointers and seize a 73-59 advantage at intermission, Hornets coach Steve Clifford was unusually calm at halftime.
"I was surprised because he wasn't mad, actually," Charlotte guard Nicolas Batum said. "He just told us to wake up."
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Paul George and Myles Turner were determined to end Indiana's recent woes against Charlotte.
George and Turner scored 22 points each to lead the Pacers to a 110-94 win over the Hornets on Monday night, snapping Indiana's four-game losing streak against Charlotte in the regular season.
DALLAS (AP) — Yet another Dallas injury opened the door for a Charlotte Hornets rally.
Kemba Walker scored 19 points, Nicolas Batum had 14 points and 15 rebounds, and the Hornets came back from an 11-point, third-quarter deficit to beat the Mavericks 109-101 on Monday night.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — It felt like those old college days for Jeremy Lamb.
Starting in the same backcourt as Kemba Walker for the first time since Connecticut beat Butler in the 2011 NCAA championship game, Lamb turned in one of his best games since joining the NBA.
Walker scored 28 points, Lamb added 18 points and a career-high 17 rebounds and the Charlotte Hornets snapped a four-game losing streak with a 107-102 victory over the New York Knicks on Saturday night.
