Following a buzzer-beater win on Sunday night, the Spurs maintained their momentum by blowing out Orlando 120-97 on the road. Seven Spurs players scored double digits, with DeMar DeRozan leading the way with 19 points and six assists in only three quarters of work. Meanwhile, R.J. Hampton led Orlando with 16 points and eight rebounds on 7-of-10 shooting from off the bench.

Takeaways

Magic

The Magic are now 2-8 in their last 10 games and have lost six straight. This is expected, though, after the Magic shipped a lot of their main contributors at the trade deadline.

In addition to R.J. Hampton’s solid game from off the bench, Wendell Carter Jr. pitched in 15 points, eight rebounds and four assists. In total, Orlando shot 45% from the floor and made only 5-of-20 three-pointers.

“We started a bit slow, but they took it seriously and respected their opponent,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “Orlando is in a tough spot right now, but they’re trying.”
