Richardson's 3s help Magic defeat Pistons

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Jason Richardson hit six 3-pointers and scored 22 points, J.J. Redick had 20 points and the Orlando Magic eased past the Detroit Pistons 119-89 Monday night.

Glen Davis added 16 points and 16 rebounds starting in place of center Dwight Howard, who missed his third game in two weeks with back spasms.

All five Orlando starters reached double figures in the Magic's first win over the Pistons this season.

The Magic also were playing without backup point guard Chris Duhon, who was suspended for the game for conduct detrimental to the team.

Tayshaun Prince led Detroit with 21 points and eight rebounds.

The Pistons lost their third straight game since a three-game winning streak. Detroit concludes its four-game road trip at Charlotte on Thursday.

With both Howard and Hedo Turkoglu (out for the regular season with a facial fracture) missing from the starting lineup, Magic coach Stan Van Gundy inserted Davis and Redick into the lineup.

The Magic led by as many as 23 in the first half, and the lead ballooned above 30 early in the third quarter.

Odom done in Dallas

DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks and Lamar Odom are done with each other.

The NBA's reigning Sixth Man of the Year and the defending NBA champions who are trying to make sure they get back to the playoffs made it clear that the partnership is over after an underwhelming 50-game stint.

Odom will be on the inactive list and not play again for the Mavericks.

Even when wife and reality TV co-star Khloe Kardashian was in the stands near the bench, Odom never seemed happy. His averages of 6.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 20.5 minutes were career lows.
