Magic rout Charlotte for first preseason win

Eight Magic players scored in double figures, including 5 players off the bench, led by Hedo Turkoglu's 20 pts, to lead the Magic to a resounding 123-99 win over CHA.

Many positives from this game:

1) Jameer Nelson with 12 asts and just 2 TOs in 22 minutes of play
2) J.J. Redick shooting 5 of 8 from 3 pt range and winding up with 17 pts
3) Adonal Foyle with his second strong game in a row with 14 pts, 8 rebs. and 3 blocks in 23 minutes
4) Another solid game from Dwight Howard, with 10 pts, 8 rebs, and 3 blocks
4) The strong bench play, as 8 reserves combined to shoot a sizzling 29 of 42 FGs (even Pat Garrity had a good game with 12 pts)
5) Magic shooting 64.1% FGs (50 of 78) for the game, and 82.4% FTs (14 of 17)
6) 29 total assists to 19 TOs

The only real negative was Rashard Lewis scoring just 2 pts in 8 minutes and leaving the game with a sprained ankle.

    123 points,WOW! Its been a long time since weve seen those sort of numbers. Jameer getting 12 assists in game two under SVG also goes to show what we all suspected,that bsh was complete garbage as a coach.

    Hill has been quoted as saying he doesn't understand why he was fired. Half the team hated him and he played Hill & Battie instead of Darko, Redick & Bogans.

    Best quote from the Sentinel game summary:

    Redick was tuckered out because, this time, the Magic ran the floor. 'Coach told us we could either run tonight or sprint tomorrow (in practice),' center Dwight Howard said.

    Jameer Nelson:

    2 preseason games
    18 assists
    2 turnovers

    I know it's only the preseason, but that's pretty damn impressive.
