The Orlando Magic dropped their fourth game in a row on Monday night, falling 74-69 to the Philadelphia 76ers. Orlando has now dropped five of its last six. Coming into tonight, the Magic were averaging just 74.8 points per game over their last five, as Stan Van Gundy's offense has disappeared. Those offensive struggles continued again tonight, as only Ryan Anderson, J.J. Redick, and Dwight Howard broke into double figures. Howard finished with 17 points and 11 rebounds, but was just six of 17 from the floor and missed seven of his 13 free-throw attempts. With trade rumors continuing to swirl and the Magic in a serious funk, Dwight seemed disengaged over as the second half wore on.
Anderson, who's been wildly up-and-down over the last week, grabbed a whopping 19 rebounds while adding 14 points. But Orlando heads home still looking for answers. The Washington Wizards come to town on Wednesday night, and should provide at least a remedy to end the losing streak.
