Udoka on the uneven play of Jaylen Brown thus far: “I’m trying to ramp him up during the game, pump him up to get going but the contrast of some of those previous games, especially Charlotte and the New York game and the way you see him come out tonight is kind of mind boggling.” – 11:12 PM

Ime Udoka on Jaylen Brown’s inconsistency early in the season: “The contrast of some of those previous games, especially Charlotte and the New York game and the way you see him come out tonight is kind of mind boggling.” – 10:37 PM

Ime Udoka said the contrast of Jaylen Brown in the Knicks and Hornets games compared to other games, is “kind of mind-boggling.” – 10:20 PM

“It’s super early but you can see this being a special group and one that can do some things.” — Mason Plumlee on the #Hornets10:01 PM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Between the Knicks, Hornets and this game, some pretty impressive late-game rallies so far for this group. Still have work plenty of work to do tonight. – 9:52 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Devonte’ Graham making some big threes, just like he often did with Charlotte. Graham is 4/7 tonight, lifting Pels to 89-87 lead mid 4Q – 9:37 PM

David Baumann @DavidBaumannORL
Magic now 1-4.
No answer for Miles Bridges, who had 31 in the Hornets 120-111 win in Orlando.
Magic reserves went -8, -22, -18 and -15 as the Hornets bench went +27, +16, +24 and +14.
Depth a recurring issue as the Magic remain w/o 3 starters (Fultz, Isaac, Okeke). – 9:28 PM

Miles Bridges scores 31 including 5 threes, Ish Smith closes over LaMelo, and people appreciate Mason Plumlee again. What are these Hornets? – 9:25 PM
Justin Kubatko @jkubatko
Miles Bridges tonight:
✅ 31 PTS
✅ 6 REB
✅ 5-10 3P
Bridges has scored 131 points this season. The only player in @Charlotte Hornets history with more points through the first five games of a season is Kemba Walker (155, 2018-19). – 9:24 PM

Final: #Hornets 120, Magic 111
Miles Bridges 31 points, 6 rebounds

Miles Bridges tops 30 points again (he has 31) and has hit a season-high 5 three-pointers. #Hornets lead Orlando 118-109 with 36 seconds left. – 9:18 PM
Cody Taylor @CodyTaylorNBA
Hornets going to take this one, up by 9 with 36 seconds left. Miles Bridges has 31 points, Gordon Hayward 24. – 9:17 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Cole Anthony is one of the most improved players here in the early going pic.twitter.com/8Jeok0S5jF9:17 PM

Cody Taylor @CodyTaylorNBA
The Magic have committed 7 turnovers in the fourth quarter, trail 111-105 with 1:49 left. – 9:14 PM
Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
Borrego going Ish Smith for LaMelo w/ 3:50 to play. Could be a quick blow, but could also be taking the air out of the ball w/ the vet to seal this win. – 9:10 PM
J. Michael Falgoust @ThisIsJMichael
If Wagner is going to deny Hayward the handoff in the strong side corner, the low man has to pull early to defend against the back cut. Otherwise it’s a layup every time. Gotta see a step ahead #MagicHornets9:07 PM

Jalen McDaniels 4/4 3FG 🔥 pic.twitter.com/QIMB3rO0wJ9:02 PM

Hornets take a 102-98 lead with 7:54 left after a 3 by LaMelo. He has 7 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals. – 9:01 PM
Micah Adams @MicahAdams13
Tired: Lonzo Ball will make the All-Star team.
Wired: Miles Bridges will make the All-Star team. – 8:59 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
The rare play where LaMelo will miss someone in transition. Miles Bridges wasn’t too happy with him either. Ball has struggled scoring tonight, think he was focused on getting himself on track. pic.twitter.com/bjIHBbtODf8:56 PM

Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
LaMelo just looks off Miles in transition to jack up a dumb 3. Miles doesn’t hold his feelings back about that decision. pic.twitter.com/cvVLcg0mTa8:56 PM

J. Kyle Mann @jkylemann
whew, bridges did not seem happy with lamelo about that transition three – 8:55 PM

Well, this Cole Anthony game is quite annoying. – 8:50 PM

As the Thunder will likely fall to 0-5, the Magic are a quarter away from stealing on from the Hornets as the race in the reverse standings heats up. – 8:50 PM
Cody Taylor @CodyTaylorNBA
End of 3Q: Magic 93, Hornets 91
Miles Bridges is up to 28 points. Cole Anthony has 18. – 8:49 PM
Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
#Hornets would be lost at sea without Miles Bridges tonight. He’s taking another huge developmental step in front of our eyes. – 8:40 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone
Miles Bridges has 20 points, which marks the fourth straight game he’s had at least that many. It’s the longest streak of his career. – 8:29 PM

Watched first half of Orlando-Charlotte. Franz Wagner looks completely legit. LaMelo Ball with some Illawarra-era defense. – 8:21 PM

one reason Charlotte is ahead: it’s owning the glass, 22-15. Magic have to get to the board quicker – 8:09 PM

Franz Wagner has been great on offense through these first five games. Just keeps things so simple and makes the easy, right play every time. – 8:07 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone
Halftime: #Hornets 64, Magic 61 – 8:06 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
Charlotte have struggled to be consistent on defense but have relied on a 5 minute sequence of high effort defense to pull away from their opponents so far this season – 8:06 PM
Cody Taylor @CodyTaylorNBA
Halftime: Hornets 64, Magic 61
Miles Bridges has a game-high 17 points, while Terrence Ross leads the Magic with 13. – 8:05 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
No Nick Richards, Miles Bridges in as the back up center and that’s while Bamba is in the game – 8:00 PM

the Hornets just glitched like videogame henchmen and gave up a dunk pic.twitter.com/xtps1umbMi8:00 PM

Franz Wagner has a team high 11 on 4/4 FG, 3/3 3s with his mom in attendance – 7:58 PM

Suggs can’t play any better defense on LaMelo here. Length kills. And then LaMelo let’s Suggs know about it. pic.twitter.com/dkjE7m8vtl7:56 PM

A. Sherrod Blakely @ASherrodblakely
That dunk by @Jaylen Brown over Miles Bridges… will that ever get old? – 7:52 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
This Orlando team is not good offensively, but if you don’t rebound, switch off at inbounds, they’re going to punish you. If they can’t stop this Magic team it’s really a red flag for this much talked about defense – 7:49 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
Jalen McDaniels handle looks much improved this year, used to be a wildcard when he put it on the floor but he’s managed to really put some pressure on the rim – 7:47 PM
Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
I’ve underestimated Nick Richards presence as a rim protector. He’s still a baby deer on the court in terms of IQ, but the dude is affecting stuff around the basket pretty consistently. pic.twitter.com/C9MWVpx05t7:42 PM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Nice @DylanTMurphy shoutout on the Magic broadcast, correctly telling coach Mosely not to challenge a goaltending call on Wendell Carter. – 7:42 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Nick Richards has done a nice job providing competent backup center play the last 2 games with PJ Washington out. Nothing spectacular, but he was totally unproven coming into the season. – 7:40 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
Terrance Ross doing what he always does, two ridiculous 3s to close out the 1st. I know fans think Charlotte have got a raw whistle this year, but it’s been kind so far. Oubre travel, McDaniels non charge, Richards non call basket interference – 7:38 PM
Orlando Magic PR @Magic_PR
END OF 1ST QUARTER BOX: Orlando 31, Charlotte 31 pic.twitter.com/ydyiqeJQ5T7:37 PM

Cody Taylor @CodyTaylorNBA
Magic and Hornets tied up at 31 after the first quarter.
Terrence Ross leads all scorers with 10 points. Cody Martin leads Charlotte with 8. – 7:37 PM
Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
It appears as if Cody Martin might have found a jump shot. pic.twitter.com/yaLMELYCBU7:36 PM

David Baumann @DavidBaumannORL
Magic second unit getting run out of its own building – 7:35 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
Gordon Hayward continuing to look out of sorts, can’t get to the rim at all and seems to be quite passive – 7:33 PM
Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
3 TOV for Hayward in 1Q. – 7:33 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Kelly Oubre just got away with the most blatant travel that he laughed about it the whole way back up the floor. – 7:27 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
Uncontested layup for Orlando straight after Borrego called a timeout to address the lack of effort on that end, 4 offensive rebounds already – 7:24 PM
Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
Mason Plumlee is incapable of not going for a ball-fake. – 7:20 PM
Cody Taylor @CodyTaylorNBA
Charlotte takes a timeout after a 3-pointer by Franz Wagner puts Orlando up 16-8 to start the game. Wagner up to 5 points. – 7:20 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
LaMelo purposefully played passive defense on Wagner in an effort not to pick up his second foul, next possession down he picks up an offensive foul. – 7:19 PM
Orlando Magic PR @Magic_PR
The @Orlando Magic have now made at least one three-point field goal in 1,134 consecutive games, dating all the way back to March 17, 2007.
It stands as the fifth-longest active streak in the #NBA and also the fifth-longest streak in @NBAHistory.
#MagicTogether7:19 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Wendell Carter Jr’s contract is going to look like a steal by the end. He’s finding his way and that deal will be under MLE money, in a rising cap, when it’s in the last couple of years. – 7:18 PM
Cody Taylor @CodyTaylorNBA
Jamahl Mosley said pre-game he wants to continue to see Cole Anthony makes plays for others and get his teammates involved. He has done a lot of that to begin the game tonight. – 7:16 PM
Evan Dunlap @BQRMagic
Cole Anthony’s playmaking is so much far ahead of what it was last year – 7:15 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Because of the Orlando blowout to start the season, the Spurs are still a +6 for the early season despite losing three in a row.
The free throw line is where SA is starting to see the biggest difference in scoring. The last few years it had been the 3PT line pic.twitter.com/3m4jEQ2AdF6:48 PM

James Plowright @British_Buzz
Watched the Boston 4th quarter back, have to say it feels like Boston made some good late adjustments. Full court pressure, intentionally fouling Plumlee, really through Charlotte off their rhythm and slowed the pace, watch for other teams to do the same – 2:01 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
I so strongly associate @Josh Robbins with the Magic, which is a tribute to his work covering that team. This is a beautiful piece on why he’s going to cover the ‘Zards for @TheAthletic. D.C. is getting a great one.
