Jim Davis/The Boston Globe via Getty Images(MILWAUKEE) — Orlando Magic guard Jason Richardson hit nine 3-pointers to help lead the Magic (17-11) to a 99-94 victory over the Bucks (12-15).

Richardson ended the night with season high 31 points, including 28 in the second half.

The win closes the Magic’s gap to a half game behind the Pacers for the fifth seed in Eastern Conference. They will get a chance to inch closer to that five seed Monday, when they host the Timberwolves.
