A lot has been said about the Magic’s offensive struggles this season. Tonight, those struggles didn’t show up until overtime. Despite several chances to tie the game in the final 90 seconds, Orlando couldn’t take advantage of their success on the defensive end, when Detroit finally built a multi-possession lead the Magic couldn’t overcome.
The loss drops the Magic to 0-3 in overtime games and to 19-25 on the year, leaving them a game and a half behind Charlotte for the final Playoff spot in the East. Orlando returns to action back at home against Brooklyn on Friday night. It should be a good test as the Nets are playing good ball right now.
