ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Glen Davis scored 29 points, J.J. Redick added 21 and the Orlando Magic sprinted out to an early lead before holding off the Denver Nuggets 102-89 Friday night.  

Danilo Gallinari led the Nuggets with 23 points, with Ty Lawson chipping in 12. But Denver struggled offensively, unable to dig out of a 20-point first-half hole.  

Friday marked the Magic's season-opener and first one in eight seasons without All-Star Dwight Howard, who was traded this summer in a multi-team deal involving Denver. The win was also new Magic coach Jacque Vaughn's first regular-season NBA victory.

 Orlando did suffer a setback, though, with forward Hedo Turkoglu leaving the game with a broken left hand. 

 The Nuggets dropped to 0-2 on their season-opening three-game road trip.
