In an outcome that likely ended any hope the Lakers had for the third lottery position of the 2014 NBA draft, the Lakers gave Orlando their ninth straight loss.
Playing on the second night of back-to-back games, the Magic got a double-double from rookie Victor Oladipo (21 points, 10 assists). Orlando owned a 46-34 rebounding advantage but couldn't overcome 20 turnovers.
Pau Gasol sat out the second half because of dizziness and nausea after scoring six points and getting two rebounds in 18 minutes in the first half.
Nick Young helped carry the offensive load for the Lakers. He finished with 26 points off the bench. Hill had 13 rebounds. Jodie Meeks also scored in double figures with 13 points and he had six steals.
Kent Bazemore, playing point guard behind starter Kendall Marshall, set a career high with eight assists while scoring eight points. Both Steve Nash (nerve root irritation) and Jordan Farmar (groin) were unavailable. The Lakers were also without Kobe Bryant (knee) and Xavier Henry (wrist).
The Lakers shot 46.3% from the field and 37.5% from three-point range. Orlando shot 45.1% and 31.6%, respectively.
Tobias Harris finished with 16 points and nine rebounds for the Magic, a far cry from the 28 points and 20 rebounds he tallied when the Lakers visited Orlando.
Oladipo started at point guard for injured Jameer Nelson (knee). Arron Afflalo had 19 points and five assists while Kyle O'Quinn contributed 14 points with seven rebounds. Nikola Vucevic collected 11 rebounds but scored only four points.
With the victory, the Lakers are now even in the win column with the Boston Celtics (23-47) and Utah Jazz (23-47). The three teams appear likely to finish in the fourth, fifth and sixth slots heading into the NBA draft lottery.
The Magic shot 44.6% from the field but held a 37-23 rebounding advantage over the Lakers.
