The Orlando Magic are struggling to get much offensive rhythm going against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night at Amway Center. In the second half, the Magic are shooting under 30 percent from behind the arc and have just 54 points through thirty plus minutes. Orlando had seemed to be out of their offensive funk that plagued them at the end of January, but a 15-point first quarter put them behind the eight-ball against Milwaukee.
Only Ryan Anderson and Dwight Howard have managed to get any flow going on offense, with each frontcourt player scoring 16 points so far. Anderson has done his damage from outside, as the three-point contestant has hit two of four threes while also grabbing eight rebounds. Howard has 16 points and nine rebounds. He's managed to hit six of eight free throws so far to keep Orlando close.
