Bamba, Gordon lead Magic over Heat 104-101

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Mohamed Bamba made a big impact in his first NBA game.

Orlando's 7-foot rookie dunked twice and blocked a shot during a 9-0 fourth quarter run, and the Magic held on for a 104-101 win over the Miami Heat in the season opener for both teams Wednesday night.

"I was so nervous going out there, but it was everything that I expected. It was a fun game to play in," said Bamba, who came off the bench for 13 points, seven rebounds and two blocks in 25 minutes. "It's just a matter of doing that 81 more times."
