The Orlando Magic are one of the most exciting young teams in the league. Although they boast a record of only 10-16, the Magic are only two games back of the Brooklyn Nets for the Eastern Conference’s 8th seed, and they have won three of their last five games. Although they may fall short of the postseason this year, fans should be ecstatic about the direction this team is headed in.
On Saturday night, Orlando fans were treated to a highly entertaining contest between their Magic and a very tough Atlanta Hawks team. The game, which was won by the Magic 100-99, featured 10 ties and 15 lead changes, with the last lead change coming on a Tobias Harris elbow jumper as the game clock expired. Check out Harris’ bucket below:
Orlando’s victory snapped Atlanta’s nine-game winning streak, which was their longest in a season since 1997. Harris, 22, finished the game with 20 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 blocks. He’s quietly having a solid season for the Magic, averaging 18.5 points (career high), and 7.8 rebounds per game.
