The Orlando Magic held an early lead over the New York Knicks on Wednesday night, but after the first quarter let the game get of of hand. The Magic were dominated by the Knicks in the remaining three quarters, as the Magic struggled to score at all in the second and third quarters. The Magic ended the night scoring just 86 points after a late surge in the fourth quarter, but it was way too little way too late as the Knicks put down 108.
Dwight Howard finished the game with just 12 points and five rebounds while Jameer Nelson led the Magic in scoring with 17 points. Orlando struggled to score in the game, but the Knicks didn't as both Iman Shumpert and Carmelo Anthony picked up 25 points each with Steve Novak adding 16 points from the bench.
With the loss, the Magic have their three-game winning streak snapped.
