Scoring consistently has been a problem for the Orlando Magic throughout the first quarter of the season, as they rank 27th in the league in points per game. That was not a problem Saturday night as they poured it on the Charlotte Bobcats, winning 107-98.
Arron Afflalo and Glen Davis both scored 20 points to pace a balanced Magic offense, which shot 54 percent from the field. Bench production was key for the Magic as J.J. Reddick scored 14 points, while big men Gustavo Ayon and Andrew Nicholson both added eight points.
Kemba Walker scored 32 points for the Bobcats, who have now lost 11 in a row. The win moved the Magic to 10-13 on the season, good for tenth place in the Eastern Conference. It also puts them just two games behind the Philadelphia 76ers for the conference's final playoff spot, something not many people expected after Dwight Howard was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers. The Magic next play host to the Minnesota Timberwolves. That game is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET on Monday.
