=== Orlando Magic Team Report – November 6 ===

(Sports Network) – The Orlando Magic try to start a season with a 3-0 record
for the first time since 1993-94, as they visit the Charlotte Bobcats
tonight for a Southeast Division battle.

On Friday, Steve Francis’ tip-in with 2.7 seconds left on the clock lifted
Orlando to a 90-89 road victory over the New Orleans Hornets. Francis finished
with 19 points and seven rebounds, while Hedo Turkoglu poured in 21 points in
16 minutes off the bench to lead the Magic to their second straight last-
second win in as many games.

Orlando began its 2004-05 campaign Wednesday with a 93-92 triumph over
Milwaukee in which Francis netted a game-winning layup at the buzzer.

After winning their season-opener in 2003-04, the Magic went on to lose 19
straight games.

Francis has averaged 22.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists in the first
two games of the season.
