Magic hold team meeting after big loss

After a 2-0 start to the season, Orlando is now reeling, and players and coaches got together in an attempt to right the ship and get the team back on the proper course.

The players and coaches of the Orlando Magic got together for a team meeting in the wake of an embarrassing 21-point loss to the San Antonio Spurs Wednesday night.

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel reports that Magic head coach Jacque Vaughn spearheaded the get-together after the Spurs blew his team out, 110-89, in a game where Orlando shot just 13.3 percent from 3-point range. Schmitz quotes guard J.J. Redick as saying that "the goal, ultimately, is winning and what can we do to get each other to play better."

Orlando beat the Denver Nuggets and Phoenix Suns to begin the season, but the Magic have gone just 3-9 since then. They rank 28th in the NBA in points scored per game (91.5). Orlando has a chance to right the ship Friday night when they host the Brooklyn Nets, who are 10-4 in their inaugural season in Brooklyn and have already beaten Orlando twice in 2012.
