New Orleans Falls To Orlando In Overtime

by | Apr 2, 2021 | Eastern Conference, NBA, Orlando Magic, Southeast | 0 comments


The Orlando Magic edged out a 115-110 overtime victory over the short-handed New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday night. The recent victory was the team’s second straight win, after snapping the Clippers’ six-game streak on Tuesday. The Magic currently claim the 13th spot in the Eastern Conference standings, with the victory boosting their record to 17-31.

Recent acquisition Wendell Carter Jr. certainly raised some eyebrows on Thursday. The former Bulls forward led the Magic in scoring with 21 points. Small Forward Terrence Ross tallied 19 points, scoring the go-ahead points with under a minute remaining in the 4th quarter. While the Magic are in the midst of the rebuilding process, forward Chuma Okeke has served as a bright spot. Prior to Thursday’s game, the Auburn product was averaging 17.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 2.3 assists over the past five games. While Okeke only added eight points in Thursdays victory, the explosive forward appears to have a promising future.
