Desperately trying to end their five game losing streak, the Orlando Magic find themselves trailing the Philadelphia 76ers by a score of 45-37 at the half. Orlando got off to a solid start in the first quarter of play, only to be outscored 26-13 in front of a raucous crowd at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
Reserves Jodie Meeks and Lou Williams each have 11 points, both making 4-5 of their field goal attempts in the first half to lead the 76ers. Philly shot a torrid 57.1% from long range and will look to continue their hot shooting in the second half.
Glen Davis and J.J. Redick each scored eight points to pace the Magic. Dwight Howard has seven points and eight rebounds, but only made two out of his eight field goals. The Magic will need a big second half from their franchise player if they are going to end their current slide.
