Turkoglu saves the day for Magic in last-second win over SEA
Turkoglu and JNelson led the Magic with 18 pts each. GHill added 12 pts and CArroyo 10 pts 6 assists. DHoward had his third straight quiet offensive game with 8 pts and 5 TOs, but did grab 10 rebounds. Ray Allen with 21 pts (4 of 8 3 pt FG) and Rashard Lewis with 16 led SEA.
The Magic shot very well from the field again (34 of 63; 54%) compared to SEA (32 of 77; 41.6%) and outscored them 74-70. Magic shot 6 of 16 on 3 pointers (37.5%), while SEA was 6 of 15. SEA (17 of 20; 85%) had the edge on the FT line over the Magic (14 of 23; 60.9%). Rebounds were even at 36, even though SEA had 16 offensive boards to just 7 for ORL. Way too many TOs for the Magic again, with 25, compared with 21 assists. SEA also had a poor assist/TO ratio at 14-21. The Magic bench edged the SEA bench 26-24.
Hedo saved what would have been an awful loss for the Magic, not being able to protect a 9 pt lead with 3 minutes left, and turning the ball over 4 times in that span. Magic are now 3-2 as they hit the road for 11 of their next 15 games, but have a number of issues to deal with and improve on.
