Orlando never led again after Jameer Nelson's layup made it 37-35 with 3:50 left in the second.
Josh Smith, Atlanta's leading scorer following Joe Johnson's offseason trade to Brooklyn, ended the first half 0 for 5 from the field and 0 for 2 on free throw attempts before finishing the game with a season-low six points.
Nelson, E'Twaun Moore, Josh McRoberts and Maurice Harkless each scored eight points and Nikola Vucevic had 13 rebounds for the Magic.
Johnson and Jeff Teague had nine points apiece, while Devin Harris and Pachulia each scored eight for Atlanta.
