After the butt-whoopin' the #Magic just put on the #Pelicans, my algorithm now says the Magic have a 44.8 percent chance of making the playoffs.
Listen to Open Mike 6-9am tomorrow as @TheAdamReardon & @MikeTuckSports will break down the night in the #NBA and see where the @OrlandoMagic and @MiamiHEAT are in the race for that final playoff spot in the east Listen on FM 96.9 / am740 / @iHeartRadio https://t.co/1R8o1iKZvB https://t.co/vneMBsHfw6
The Magic technically are 21-16 at home. Note, however, that two of those wins were in Mexico City. So, the Magic are: * 19-16 at Amway Center, * 2-0 in Mexico City and * 13-22 on the road. They are 34-38 overall and trail the eighth-place Heat by 1 game.
It bears repeating, Michael Carter-Williams has had a real effect on this team. Energy, pace are up (not talking about the actual number). Team just has a bounce to it. Similar to what Briscoe gave. Second unit didn’t need someone who simply kept the boat steady. Needed an engine
This lead was cut to 15 early in the 3rd and the Magic have since rattled off a 22-6 run to open up a 31 point lead after 3 quarters! Terrific focus by this group to handle it's business, 1 more strong quarter and Orlando hopes to make it 3 straight wins
Aaron Gordon has had a really solid game, especially in the second half. Playing a whole lot more aggressively after getting into rhythm from beyond the arc. He is up to 20 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists. Great defense on Randle too.
