Tobias Harris slammed down a two-handed dunk as time expired to give the Orlando Magic a 103-102 NBA triumph over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday.

The Thunder fell to 40-12, still the second-best record in the NBA, while the Magic remained the second-worst team in the league at 15-37.

NBA scoring leader Kevin Durant had a chance to stretch the Thunder lead in the dying seconds but missed a jumper that was rebounded by Orlando's Victor Oladipo.

Oladipo flipped the ball to Maurice Harkless under the net and he threw the ball to Harris, who was trailing on the fast break and jammed the ball through the hoop just ahead of the final horn.

Harris led Orlando with 18 points while Arron Afflalo added 16 points and Oladipo and Glen Davis each contributed 14 for a Magic side that trailed by as many as 16 points in the third quarter.

Durant scored a game-high 29 points and added 12 assists for Oklahoma City while Spaniard Serge Ibaka added 26 points, six rebounds and five blocked shots for the Thunder, who have lost their past two road games, falling earlier at Washington.
