Magic Vs. Knicks Score Update: New York Surges In Second Quarter To Take 57-41 Lead

The Orlando Magic are trying to win their fourth game in a row and their second over the New York Knicks this season, and looked to be well on their way after the first period. In the second period however, the Magic let a banged up Knicks team right back into the game as New York took the lead. The Knicks were without Amare Stoudamire and Jeremy Lin on the evening, but were still able to battle back and get the 57-41 lead at halftime.

Despite Stoudamire being out, the Knicks were still able to hold Magic center Dwight Howard in check, as Howard finished the first half with just 10 points and the Magic as a whole were out rebounded. The Knicks began to pull away in the second half as the Magic offense just faded into almost nothing, scoring just 12 points in the second half. If Orlando wants to get back into the game in the second half, they'll need to get Howard more involved and improve their three-point shooting, hitting on just 15.4 percent in the first half.
