Orlando Magic Team Report – November 15
=== Orlando Magic Team Report – November 15 ===
(Sports Network) – Tracy McGrady was a one-man wrecking crew with a league
season-high 51 points on Friday night, but the Magic still fell 106-101 to the
Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center. He was 20-of-30 from the field, including
drilling 8-of-11 from three-point range in the losing effort.
Only two other Magic reached double digits, as Tyronn Lue posted 13 points and
Drew Gooden chipped in 10. Outside of McGrady, Orlando hit just 19-of-57 field
goal attempts (.333). The Magic were also outrebounded, 53-45, in the win.
Orlando forward Pat Garrity did not play due to a sore right knee. Garrity
continues to be listed as day-to-day.
Orlando hasn’t won since an opening night overtime victory over the New York
Knicks at Madison Square Garden. The Magic nearly lost that contest, but made
a late comeback to get a victory.
The Magic are in the midst of their worst skid since dropping eight in a row
from January 7-20, 2000. Orlando hasn’t lost more than eight straight since
1991-92, when they dropped a franchise-record 17 consecutive games.
Orlando continues its road jaunt against the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday
