With a road win against a tough team like the San Antonio Spurs, the Orlando Magic were happy to break the losing streak.

But the question remains, will the Magic be able to extend this streak when they head home to play the Cleveland Cavaliers?

During the post game interview after the Spurs game, Magic forward, Aaron Gordon put it best on what the team should do when they had back to Orlando.

“It’s good to go get a road win, especially with the team that we only play twice a year. It’s good to get that one,” Gordon said. “But we’ve got to go home and make it happen on our home front.”

Magic v. Cavaliers

Once the game started, the Magic started off strong, ending the first quarter up 30-21. And ending the first half, 58-47.

However, after halftime, the Cavs started to make a push, ending the third quarter, 79-70, with the Magic trailing from behind.

Fortunately, the Magic started to chip away at the Cavs lead. This was done thanks to better defense in the paint and better ball movement, allowing the team to stay competitive in the game.

One moment that made Magic fans anxious was when the game was tied at 100 with less than 10 seconds left, and the Cavs had position of the ball.

Thankfully, the Magic’s Nikola Vucevic blocked George Hill‘s layup, causing a turnover and giving the Magic the ball with 1.8 seconds to score.

Once the ball was inbounded, Evan Fournier, with Cedi Osman playing tight defense against him. Fournier pulled up and shot a long two-pointer, giving the Magic a two-point win with a 102-100 score.

Post game

During the post game interview, Magic head coach Steve Clifford, summed up how the team felt once the game ended.

“So it was an important win and, you know, it’s the first time we’ve won two in a row, so it’s good”, Clifford said.

The Magic will host the Detroit Pistons on Nov. 7 at 7 p.m.

My name is Jonathan David and I am from a small town called Green Cove Springs, located in northeast Florida. Originally from Miami, Florida, my family moved up north, as I was entering the fourth grade. Once we moved, I eventually started getting into sports a lot more. I did soccer, basketball and running and pole-vaulting; however, the main sport that I pretty much keep up with is, basketball, specifically the NBA. Although I’ll occasionally watch track and field if it’s on ESPN. There were many reasons why I got into basketball, besides it looking like fun, one reason was because I wanted to be like Bugs Bunny from Space Jam, not Michael Jordan, but Bugs Bunny, and while my dream of being an animated character hasn’t panned out, I still enjoy playing and watching the sport. My favorite NBA team is the Orlando Magic, and I’ve been a fan since Lebron was in Miami, so when they eventually get good, people can’t say I’m a bandwagon fan.
