Magic Vs. Hornets Recap: On Second Night Of Back-To-Back, Orlando Blown Out By New Orleans

The Orlando Magic coughed up a 20 plus point lead Thursday night to the Boston Celtics, scoring just eight points in the final quarter to squander a home win. Those woes carried over to Friday night as they were run off the floor by the New Orleans Hornets in their fourth game in five nights. The Magic failed to scored 20 points in a quarter, as the Hornets closed it out 93-67 at New Orleans Arena.

Dwight Howard was the only Magic player who showed up, scoring 28 points and grabbing 16 rebounds against an overmatched Hornet frontcourt. No other Magic player would score in double figures, as Orlando shot less than 40 percent from the field. In addition to the poor-shooting, they also committed 22 turnovers, which made this a laugher early in the fourth quarter.

The Magic now have one day off, before they host the Indiana Pacers at Amway Center on Sunday evening.
