The Magic cooled down a bit earlier in the week with a two-point loss to the Toronto Raptors. It looked bad again in Denver on Friday night, losing 112–87.
DJ Augustin and Evan Fournier combined for just nine points (one 1-for-9 from three) in the loss. Fournier went 0-for-5 from distance. As a team, Orlando shot just 8-for-32 (25 percent) from three. It had been the best three-point shooting team in the NBA during its run of seven wins in nine games.
If the Magic is coming back down to Earth, this could be a rough week ahead. Orlando’s West Coast road trip continues in LA and then goes to Oracle Arena for a game with the Warriors. The Magic plays in Portland and Phoenix before going back to Florida for a game in Miami. Not until after that game, will the Magic return home.
After what happened last season around the same time, it’s hard to believe that anything we saw from Orlando for the last two weeks will be here to stay for any sort of long-term period of time.
The Magic sure lit up the Lakers in Orlando a week ago. It scored 130 points behind thirty-six points and thirteen rebounds from Nikola Vucevic in that game.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers won an ugly one against Utah on Friday night and moved further up in the Western Conference standings. LA is one of nine teams with double-digit wins and none of the eleven have more than thirteen.
LeBron James was the only Laker with an assist as late as midway through the third quarter. In all, the Lakers turned it over twenty-three times and only threw ten assists in a 90–83 win.
Brandon Ingram led all scorers with twenty-four and Lonzo Ball had nine points and ten boards. LeBron had twenty-two, ten and seven.
LA was fortunate Donovan Mitchell suffered a rib contusion and didn’t return in the second half. Otherwise, Utah, which tied the game in the fourth quarter, may have snuck away with a road win.
The Lakers’ only loss in nearly three weeks was that one in Orlando last Sunday. We’ll see if JaVale McGee and Tyson Chandler can do a better job containing Vucevic this time around.
