Magic vs. Grizzlies final score: Orlando falls, 115-100

Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE

The Orlando Magic dropped their second-to-last preseason game to the Memphis Grizzlies, 115-100.

J.J. Redick scored 23 points off the bench, but the Orlando Magic fell to the Memphis Grizzlies, 115-100, on Wednesday night at the FedExForum.

Orlando struggled out of the gate, falling behind, 33-21, after the first quarter. The Magic were able to trim the gap over the next two quarters, and they trailed by just two points heading into the final frame. However, Memphis dominated the fourth quarter, outscoring the Magic, 27-14, and cruising to victory.

Memphis got major contributions from their starting lineup, as the unit shot a robust 58.9 percent from the field. Rudy Gay led the way for the Grizzlies with 20 points, while Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol each chipped in with 18.

Aside from Redick, Orlando got a nice performance from young big man Nikola Vucevic. Vucevic, who came over from Philadelphia in the Dwight Howard trade, scored 16 points and pulled down nine rebounds in 31 minutes.

With the loss, Orlando dropped to 2-5 on the preseason. The Magic have one preseason game left on the slate, as they host the Houston Rockets on Friday at the Amway Center.
