76ers Vs. Magic Recap: Depleted Orlando Team Breaks Out Offensively For 113-100 Win

The Orlando Magic put together a total team effort on the offensive end on Monday night for their second win in as many nights, defeating the Philadelphia 76ers 113-100. The Magic shot 53 percent from the floor and better than 60 percent from behind the arc, putting six players in double figures. It was an impressive showing without Dwight Howard and Glen Davis anchoring the paint.

Ryan Anderson had a monster game for the Magic, scoring 26 points and grabbing 16 rebounds. But unlike usual this season, Anderson did a lot of his work inside the arc, hitting 11 of 16 attempts from the floor and grabbing eight offensive rebounds. J.J. Redick scored 18 points and Jameer Nelson matched Anderson with a double-double of his own, dishing 13 assists and scoring 16 points. It was truly a team win, and one that has to have Stan Van Gundy pleased.

The Magic now travel to Boston on Wednesday to face a Celtics team that has completely thrown them off their offensive game all year. It will be interesting to see if they can carry-over any of the production and momentum from the win over the Sixers.

76ers Vs. Magic Score Update: Depleted Orlando Leading By 6 At Half

The Orlando Magic are looking for back-to-back wins on Monday night after this Sunday's road victory in Cleveland. They lead the Philadelphia 76ers 61-55 after two quarters at Amway Center. The Sixers have struggled mightily in the second half of the season, and Orlando, playing without Dwight Howard and Glen Davis, shot 52 percent from the floor in the first half to take the six-point lead.

Ryan Anderson leads all scorers with 15 points, hitting six of nine from the floor. Anderson has also picked up some slack on the glass, grabbing seven rebounds as the Magic's lone interior player with any experience. Quentin Richardson came off the bench and drilled two quick threes, contributing eight points for Stan Van Gundy. Despite the lack of experienced bigs, the Magic still out-rebounded Philly by eight with a total team effort on the glass.

Orlando will continue to rely on Jason Richardson and J.J. Redick, who each poured in double figures in the first half, to carry them to back-to-back wins to start the week.

Glen Davis Injury: Magic Forward A Game-Time Decision; Daniel Orton To Start In His Place

The Orlando Magic got a big scare in a Sunday night win over the Cleveland Cavalier. Forward Glen Davis fell to the floor clutching his right knee. He hyperextended it. Fortunately, the injury is apparently a minor one, according to Dan Savage with the team, and Davis will be a game-time decision for Monday's battle with the Sixers.

An MRI revealed that Davis has a mild hyperextension. He escaped any structural damage which could have been a real problem for the Magic with the playoffs just over the horizon. Daniel Orton will start in Davis' place.

Orlando is already without Dwight Howard who has a herniated disc in his back. Howard is out indefinitely. Hedo Turkoglu is also out for the near future.

Orlando hosts the Sixers on Monday night, a team they have beaten twice in three games this season.
