Magic Vs. Bucks Recap: Orlando Comes Back In Final 30 Seconds For 93-90 Win Over Milwaukee

After a blowout loss in Miami on Sunday afternoon, the Orlando Magic bounced back with an impressive road win on the second night of a back-to-back. The Magic squeaked it out at the end, as Ryan Anderson drilled a three-pointer with less than 20 seconds remaining to put the Magic ahead by one. Orlando would then force a Brandon Jennings turnover and Jameer Nelson would hit two free-throws to seal the last-minute comeback and 93-90 win.

Dwight Howard had a monster game in the paint against an overmatched Milwaukee front line. The All-Star was relatively bottled up in Miami but exploded in the first half against the Bucks, and finished with 28 points and 16 rebounds. He also uncharacteristically hit ten of 14 attempts from the charity stripe. In addition to Dwight, point guard Jameer Nelson scored 15 points, including those two crucial free-throws in the final seconds.

Orlando, which improved to 9-6 on the road, now travel to New Jersey to face the Nets and Deron Williams on Wednesday night.
