Magic Vs. 76ers Score Update: Orlando's Offense Continues To Sputter

The Orlando Magic head into Philadelphia to take on the Sixers hoping to avoid losing four games in a row.

The Orlando Magic traveled to Philadelphia to take on the Philadelphia 76ers hoping to avoid losing their fourth game in a row. In the three-game losing streak, the Magic's offensive game has sputtered outside of Magic star Dwight Howard. Early on against the 76ers it looked like more of the same, as the Magic trailed the 76ers 19-18 after the first quarter of play.

Entering halftime, the Magic continued to trail, scoring just 15 points in the second quarter and hit the locker rooms down 37-33. Howard once again led the way for the Magic in the first half scoring eight points with five rebounds, while Ryan Anderson added just four points and six rebounds. Guard J.J. Redick got a little bit of offense going, scoring seven points and hitting on 2 of his 3 three-point shots.

The 76ers offense on the other hand hasn't been that much better, but they still hold the lead at the half. Thaddeus Young leads the Sixers is points off the bench with 10, while forward Elton Brand has added eight points. Andre Iguodala added six points and seven rebounds.
