ORLANDO, Fla. -- Nikola Vucevic had 19 points and 12 rebounds as the Orlando Magic routed the Brooklyn Nets 107-86 on Sunday in Jason Kidd's coaching debut.

Magic rookie Victor Oladipo scored 19 points, 14 in the second half, as Orlando won back-to-back games for the first time since Dec. 19, 2012. Andrew Nicholson added 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Magic.

Brook Lopez led the Nets with 21 points. Paul Pierce was the only other Net to score in double figures with 16 points and he grabbed seven rebounds. The Nets shot 38.2 percent for the game.

The Magic used a 17-4 run early in the third quarter to break open a close game. They led by 15 points after three quarters, then Oladipo scored six straight points at the start of the fourth.

His last basket was a steal off Nets' All-Star guard Deron Williams and a breakaway dunk that put Orlando up 82-61 with 10:11 left. The Nets never got closer than 16 points after that.
