HEAVILY BEATEN IN BROOKLYN

The Orlando Magic were heavily beaten by 92-129 in Brooklyn by a red hot Nets team. Brooklyn secured their 8th consecutive win as Kyrie Irving and James Harden controlled the game. The Magic again had a settled starting lineup with Michael Carter-Williams, Evan Fournier, James Ennis III, Al-Farouq Aminu and Nikola Vucevic. That left Chasson Randle, Khem Birch, Terrence Ross, Dwayne Bacon, Chuma Okeke, Gary Clark and Mo Bamba to come from the bench. THE OPENING QUARTER An ominous start for Orlando saw James Harden feed Kyrie Irving for a made two under the basket inside 15 seconds. The Orlando…

THE NIGHT OF LACKLUSTRE EFFORT

Unfortunately on the night of lacklustre effort, a loss muted Nikola Vucevic's celebration, being selected for his second All-Star appearance. Simply put Orlando could not find their game.

A SOLID BUT UNEXCITING PERFORMANCE BY ORLANDO

Last night saw a solid but unexciting performance by Orlando to beat Detroit in the Amway. For Orlando the result was the needed one as they seek to build on the win streak they have began. BEFORE THE TIP The Magic again had a different starting line-up as Al-Farouq Aminu joined James Ennis III, Nikola Vucevic, Michael Carter-Williams and Evan Fournier. That left Chasson Randle, Khem Birch, Terrence Ross, Mo Bamba, Chuma Okeke, Gary Clark and Dwayne Bacon to come from the bench.

DAMIAN LILLARD SHONE IN PORTLAND TO BEAT ORLANDO

Damian Lillard shone in Portland to beat Orlando in a game the Magic led only briefly in. This was another loss in tough circumstances. THE OPENING QUARTER Orlando were hit early by Damian Lillard dishing assists out to a red hot Gary Trent Jr, who was drilling the 3 ball. With 4:30 played in the quarter Al-Farouq Aminu joined the Magic team on court. This was something of a surprise having been listed earlier in the day as out.

ORLANDO FALL SHORT IN LAKERS LOSS

Magic 112-119 Lakers Saturday night against the Lakers was a tale of two halves as the teams resumed a full 48 minute scrimmage. Orlando played its second straight game without Markelle Fultz, Jonathan Isaac and Al-Farouq Aminu something that hopefully changes on Monday against the Denver Nuggets. The Magic gotten off to a slow, frustrating start in the opening 12 minutes on both ends of the floor, the Lakers defence was suffocating at every opportunity making Orlando's offence inside the paint difficult. On the other end, it felt like the Lakers could attack the Magic in the paint whenever they…
