Moritz Wagner scored 27 points as the Orlando Magic beat the Boston Celtics 113-96 for their sixth straight win to throw the Eastern Conference's Group C up wide open in the NBA's inaugural In-Season Tournament.
Paolo Banchero had 23 points and seven rebounds for Orlando. Franz Wagner finished with 17 points, eight rebounds and six assists, and Cole Anthony came off the bench with 16 points.
Jayson Tatum led Boston with 26 points. Jaylen Brown added 18, but made just two of 16 shots after scoring 12 points in the first 10 minutes.
Jalen Suggs hit two of the Magic's four 3-pointers on a 17-0 run after Boston had taken a 62-50 lead early in the third quarter. The Celtics missed all eight shots during the game-changing run and went scoreless for 4:42.
The Magic finished 3-1 in group play. The loss dropped Boston to 2-1 with a game at home against Chicago coming up on Tuesday night.
The Brooklyn Nets, who beat the Magic, are also 2-1 pending a game against Toronto on Tuesday night. Friday's score left the Magic with a plus-17 point differential in group play and the Celtics are at zero.
If there is a three-way tie after group play, point differential will determine the group champion.
In Memphis, Devin Booker scored a season-high 40 points for the Phoenix Suns who defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 110-89.
Eric Gordon added 20 while Jordan Goodwin and Grayson Allen finished with 14 points each for the Suns, who played without leading scorer Kevin Durant - a late scratching due to right foot soreness.
Santi Aldama led Memphis with 21 points, while Derrick Rose added 17. David Roddy contributed 14 points as the Grizzlies lost their third game in a row and remained winless at home this season.
The win gave Phoenix a 3-1 record in the tournament, but left them a game behind the Lakers, who won West Group A with a 4-0 record.
The Suns must now wait on how other teams in the West fare to see who qualifies for the tournament wild-card spot.
