Jordan Hill had a career-high 28 points along with 13 rebounds in his first start in over nine weeks and the Los Angeles Lakers beat Orlando 103-94 on Sunday night, sending the Magic to their ninth straight loss.

Nick Young scored 26 points off the bench, helping the Lakers end a four-game skid. Pau Gasol had six points in 18 minutes, and sat out the second half after feeling nauseous and dizzy.

Steve Nash, who had 11 assists in 19 minutes off the bench Friday night against Washington after missing the previous 15 games because of chronic nerve damage in his back, did not play. The 40-year-old two-time MVP has been limited to just 11 games all season because of his condition.

Orlando point guard Victor Oladipo had 21 points and 10 assists in his eighth career start.
