Even a supreme scoring effort by Dwyane Wade wasn't enough for the Miami Heat to beat the visiting Orlando Magic.

Dwight Howard had 29 points and 20 rebounds, Hedo Turkoglu capped his 22-point night by hitting a huge three-pointer with 11 seconds left, and the Magic survived some late-game Miami heroics to beat the Heat, 121-114, last night.

Wade matched a career high with 48 points, 20 of them coming in the fourth quarter and all of them in regulation for Miami, which fell to 8-22.

Daequan Cook sent the game to overtime with a long three-pointer with 1.9 seconds left in regulation, then tied the game again on another three with 1:18 left for Miami. But Turkoglu scored the next five points.

Rashard Lewis scored 17 points, while Keith Bogans and Carlos Arroyo each had 13 for Orlando.

Ricky Davis and Udonis Haslem each scored 17 for Miami, which played without starting center Shaquille O'Neal and point guard Jason Williams.

O'Neal missed his first game of the season with left hip bursitis and Williams was sidelined by a sore left knee. Miami also played without backup point guard Chris Quinn (sprained ankle), and the Heat aren't sure if any of those three will be ready to play Saturday night in Washington.
