ORLANDO (NBA.com exclusive) -- Rashard Lewis didn't play and Hedo Turkoglu is gone, but the Orlando Magic didn't miss their 3-point production in Wednesday night's season opener.
Seven Magic players made 3-pointers in the first half of a 120-106 rout of the Philadelphia 76ers.
"We definitely have a lot to choose from," said Vince Carter, who contributed three of the Magic's 16 3-pointers and finished with 15 points in his Magic debut.
Ryan Anderson, starting until Lewis is eligible to return from his 10-game suspension in mid-November, shot 4-of-7 from behind the arc and Jason Williams added three more in a big rally in the first half.
Marreese Speights came off the Sixers' bench with a game-high and career-high 26 points on 10-of-11 shooting. Louis Williams was the only Sixer starter in double figures with 18 points, 10 of them in the first quarter.
All-NBA center Dwight Howard led the Magic with 21 points and 15 rebounds, but it was a quiet night by his standards.
The Sixers shot 50 percent for the game, but they fell behind by 31 points entering the fourth quarter.
"They had a big second quarter and outscored us by 18 or 19 points," said Sixers forward Elton Brand, who scored eight points in 31 minutes. "We are still trying to get on the same page as an offense. Defensively, they knocked down a lot of 3-point shots. They shot 16-for-29; you're not going to shoot a lot better than that."
Even with five new players in its rotation, Orlando's perimeter shooting was in midseason form in the rematch of teams that met in the first round of the playoffs six months ago.
"We've put a lot of energy and effort into hitting the ground running in game 1," Carter said. "Each game in the preseason helped us."
Lewis, who was suspended for using a substance banned by the NBA's anti-drug policy, led the NBA with 220 3-poiners last season. Turkoglu, who signed with the Toronto Raptors, added 134.
Their absence didn't keep the Magic from firing away.
"The successful organizations in this league, they don't just pick players willy-nilly," explained coach Stan Van Gundy.
With the exception of Howard and the other inside players, Van Gundy added, "everyone else on that roster can shoot the hell out of the ball, and that's not by chance. Otis (Smith) put together a team that fits. We're not always gonna shoot like this, but they're capable of shooting that way on a given night."
The Magic shot 56 percent overall and had six players in double figures.
A couple of turnovers by Jason Williams helped the Sixers to an early 14-2 run and a 24-19 lead, their biggest of the game.
Jason Williams' 3-pointer then launched a 42-18 Magic run over the next 12 minutes. It included 3-pointers by Carter, Matt Barnes, J.J. Redick and Anderson, and two by Jason Williams in a span of 23 seconds.
The Magic made 15-of-20 shots, including 6-of-9 3s, in a 41-point second quarter that left them with a lead of 70-47.
The Sixers never again got the margin under 20 until the final minute.
"Their threes destroyed us. I don't think they hit the rim, so give them a lot of credit," said Sixers coach Eddie Jordan. "I don't think we were as bad as it looked."
