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.
