Jason Richardson Leads Orlando Over Milwaukee 99-94

Led by Jason Richardon's 31 points the Orlando Magic rallied for a 99-94 victory against the Milwaukee Bucks Saturday night.

On the heels of Friday's disappointing home loss to the Atlanta Hawks, the Orlando Magic rallied from a 10-point fourth quarter deficit to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 99-94 in the Bradley Center on Saturday night.

The hero in this contest for the Magic was Jason Richardson, as he scored 28 of his 31 points in the second half to lead the Magic's charge. He finished the night hitting 9 out of his 11 three point attempts, with the team as whole shooting 41% from beyond the arc. Richardson's offensive barrage overshadowed a relatively quiet night from Dwight Howard, who was held to 11 points despite facing a Bucks frontline lacking a true center with Andrew Bogut sidelined with a fractured left ankle. Milwaukee was paced by Drew Gooden's 21 points, with Ersan Illyasova adding 17. The Bucks leading scorer for the season Brandon Jennings had an off night, as he managed to score only 7 points while shooting a woeful 3 of 14 from the field.

Orlando's next game is home Monday night against Kevin Love and the Minnesota Timberwolves.
