I wrote about the Magic’s game with Toronto on Tuesday. It ended up losing, 93–91, a buzzer-beating leaner by Danny Green. Too bad.
Orlando may have lost, but it still covered. And it’s still playing really well, as far as I’m concerned. Nikola Vucevic is a rebounding machine and had eighteen against Serge Ibaka and company and Evan Fournier poured in twenty-seven.
Neither Jonathan Isaac nor Mo Bamba are playing big minutes yet, just a full year of experience between the two of them, but together they are playing between thirty and forty minutes a game now. That’s a start and they’re making a difference on defense.
The Magic will be underdogs for this game, and rightfully so. You aren’t going to favor Orlando in Denver but, given the two teams’ current form, I’m not sure you can give the Magic more than five or six.
The Nuggets beat Boston on that Jamal Murray forty-eight-point game, which feels like a month ago now. They lost four in a row after that and then dismantled the Hawks.
Then they went on another two-game losing skid, in New Orleans and then Milwaukee. Denver stopped the bleeding in Minnesota, hanging on to win by two despite getting outscored by nine points in the fourth.
Nikola Jokic isn’t scoring and I’m not sure why. He’s never been a particularly aggressive scorer but I wonder if his conditioning has something to do with it. He isn’t exactly a model of excellence in that discipline.
Paul Millsap did pour in twenty-five but he’s long past the days when he can do that for any extended period of time. I’m seriously skeptical about Denver scoring enough to keep up with the Magic in this one.
