Orlando Magic lose to Chicago Bulls. Nice job!
As the season draws even nearer to the end, the one constant of the year remained the same. The Orlando Magic lost on the road. The Magic faced off against the Chicago Bulls on Monday night, falling 108-95. With the road loss, the Magic fell to 4-37 when playing away from the Amway Center.
More importantly, they inched closer to securing the 3rd-worst record in the league and the 15.6% odds of winning the top overall pick. Wins are fun and obviously important to developing a winning culture, but 81 games deep into a lost season – you root for a competitive game and the L.
The Magic were led on the night by Kyle O’Quinn’s 20 points and 19 points off the bench for the man formerly known as Andrew Nicholson. Victor Oladipo started at PG in place of the injured Jameer Nelson and finished with just 10 points and four assists in 23 minutes.
The stingy Bulls defense had their way with the Magic for the majority of the game and were ultimately led by the versatile Joakim Noah’s 18 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists. Mike Dunleavy Jr. scored 22.
Orlando’s final game of the season comes on Wednesday night at the Amway Center against the Indiana Pacers. Tip is set for 7pm.
