HTurkoglu had an outstanding game, with 21 pts, 14 rebs, and 8 assists. KDooling (13 pts), JNelson (12 pts 7 assists), DHoward (10 pts 9 rebs), and Darko (10 pts) also contributed. GS was led by Derek Fisher (20 pts), and Baron Davis, who scored 17 pts off the bench. Jason Richardson, who scored 44 pts against MIA, was held to 11 pts by the Magic.
The Magic had another outstanding game shooting, as they shot 58.6% on 41 of 70 FG shooting. GS was held to 46.8% FG shooting. Even though the Magic shot only 69.2% from the FT line, they outscored GS 18-8 from the line. GS only attempted 9 FTs the whole game, compared to the Magic's 26 FT attempts. The Magic outrebounded GS 37-26. Even though the Magic had 18 TOs, they did have 24 assists, which showed they are running the offense better. GS had a similar 23-17 assist-to-turnover ratio. The Magic bench did well once again, bettering the GS bench 42-39. Bo Outlaw had another nice effort with 6 pts on 3 of 3 shooting in 15 minutes.
Nice job by the Magic winning back-to-back games. Now if only we can break that long 13 game road road losing streak on Monday against the Pacers.
