Marreese Speights could not attend tonight's game because of a personal matter. But Khem Birch said Speights contacted him before tipoff to offer scouting reports on Karl-Anthony Towns, Taj Gibson and Gorgui Dieng. In his postgame media avail, Birch thanked Speights for helping.
With tonight’s win (1st since Dec. 28), the @Orlando Magic now have 13 wins. They’ve beaten the current 3-6 seeds of the West (@Minnesota Timberwolves, @San Antonio Spurs, @Oklahoma City Thunder & @PelicansNBA). They’ve also beaten the 3, 4 & 8 seeds of the East (@cavs, @MiamiHEAT & @DetroitPistons).
Biyombo and Birch have combined for 21 points, 25 rebounds and nine blocks. That is big production without Vucevic.
Aaron Gordon almost ended Taj Gibson.
