Bucks Vs. Magic Recap: Dwight Howard 20-20 Game Makes It Four In A Row For Orlando

A huge fourth quarter on the defensive end against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night delivered the Orlando Magic their fourth straight win. The Magic trailed for much of the game before holding the Bucks to an 11-point fourth quarter and sealing a 94-85 win. After an ugly first quarter on the offensive end, the Magic stormed back from a double-digit lead and then pulled away with a strong defensive effort for Stan Van Gundy.

Dwight Howard kicked it into high gear in the second half, cleaning the glass for a monster 20-20 game against an overmatched Bucks frontline. Howard finished with 26 points and 20 rebounds to lead Orlando. Ryan Anderson paired up with Howard in the frontcourt and added 23 points. Anderson hit four of seven attempts from three-point range, while also grabbing nine boards of his own.

The Magic now have a Sunday showdown against division rival Miami on national television at American Airlines Arena.

Bucks Vs. Magic Score Update: Orlando Struggling On The Offensive End Against Milwaukee

The Orlando Magic are struggling to get much offensive rhythm going against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night at Amway Center. In the second half, the Magic are shooting under 30 percent from behind the arc and have just 54 points through thirty plus minutes. Orlando had seemed to be out of their offensive funk that plagued them at the end of January, but a 15-point first quarter put them behind the eight-ball against Milwaukee.

Only Ryan Anderson and Dwight Howard have managed to get any flow going on offense, with each frontcourt player scoring 16 points so far. Anderson has done his damage from outside, as the three-point contestant has hit two of four threes while also grabbing eight rebounds. Howard has 16 points and nine rebounds. He's managed to hit six of eight free throws so far to keep Orlando close.
