Spurs Vs. Magic Final Score: Orlando Can't Hold Up In Overtime

The Orlando Magic were on the tail end of a back-to-back-to-back slate of games and just didn't have enough juice to beat the San Antonio Spurs, falling 85-83 in overtime. The Magic held the early lead before the half, as both teams clearly struggled to score against the other's defense. Early in the second half, the Spurs tied the game and overtook the lead, but the Magic battled back and the Spurs sent to game into overtime.

In the overtime period, the Magic just simply couldn't sink their shots and thanks to some questionable decisions by point guard Jameer Nelson, the Magic fell short and dropped the game to the Spurs in overtime. For the Magic, Dwight Howard picked up another double-double with 24 points and 25 rebounds while Ryan Anderson added a double-double of his own with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Guard Von Wafer was also able to add 15 points from the bench, but it just wasn't enough to best the Spurs.
