West tapped it near midcourt, and George Hill was able to scoop it up and sprint ahead for a layup to cut it to 93-92 with just 14.9 seconds left.
It wasn't enough, though.
"We are good," George said. "This is obviously a game we got to take care of ... but we are still positive. It happens. We just have to do a better job and learn from this."
And for the second straight game, the Magic were able to turn their early mistakes into late-game mettle.
While it is only two wins, Magic veteran guard Jameer Nelson said they are certainly victories to build on for this young team.
"I've always said it's a process," Nelson said. "You're not gonna just become a great team overnight. Not too many teams have done that. You have to work on it; you have to learn and get better."
Note: Nelson celebrated his 32nd birthday on Sunday.
