Magic coach Mark Price entered the game planning to give his starters somewhat of a rest, saying he could see they had "hit the wall."
That paved the way for the likes of Charlie Westbrook (three points) and Bradford Burgess (six points), but the stars for the Magic mostly remained the same.
Despite playing just 16 minutes, Andrew Nicholson scored 16 points on four-of-seven shooting. He showed good patience in the post handling double teams. He found his way to the free throw line often, going eight-of-eight from the stripe.
Point guard Maalik Wayns played just under 22 minutes, but still managed to match Nicholson's 16 points on six-of-11 shooting. The undrafted Villanova product also dished out four assists. After the game, Price raved about Wayns's play, saying he belonged on an NBA roster.
Wayns was scheduled to leave the team Wednesday night in order to join the Golden State Warriors in the Las Vegas Pro Summer League.
