Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Michael Malone called out his starters for the beginning of the third quarter tonight. Orlando opened the half on a 12-3 run: “Monte, Will, Jeff, Aaron, Nikola. Those guys were not ready to play.” pic.twitter.com/T1pn15D5aU12:30 AM

Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA
Franz Wagner is an intriguing player. Did not expect him to play like this. Tantalizing combination of shooting, playmaking, and off-ball skills.
Who’s a good comp for his play style? I keep picturing some combination of Kings Hedo and Danny Granger, but I’m not sure that works – 11:16 PM
Cody Taylor @CodyTaylorNBA
Cole Anthony on facing Aaron Gordon:
A.G. was a real cool dude. I got a lot of love for him. I’m very appreciative. He was actually renting me my first apartment. It was dope to not let him come back here and walk all over us. He had a good game but I was happy we got the win. – 10:13 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Aaron Gordon: “This one hurts.” – 10:10 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
The Nuggets have a 119.5 defenisve rating over their last eight games in which theyve gone 1-7 — the worst mark in the NBA by 3.4 points. – 10:06 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Last time a team made 60% or more of their field goals against Pelicans: Nuggets on 11/17/2017 in Denver (146-114).
Worst opponent FG% in a game in franchise history: Timberwolves shot 65.1% on 4/13/2016 (144-109).
Mavericks currently shooting 68.8% w/ 2:45 left.
Embarrassing. – 10:00 PM

Malone: “We let Gary Harris drive to his right hand. We should know better than anybody in the world which way Gary Harris is driving.” – 9:51 PM

Katy Winge @katywinge
Coach Malone also said postgame that he didn’t feel like the starting group – Jokić, Barton, Morris, AG, and Jeff Green – was ready to play in the third quarter, when Orlando came back strong after being down 16 at the half. – 9:44 PM
Katy Winge @katywinge
Coach Malone postgame: “You can’t play one quarter of basketball and expect to win.”
Said they defended in the first quarter, & then didn’t defend anyone after that.
Specifically pointed out the PITP for the Magic. Nuggets gave up only 10 in the first, 56 in other 3 quarters. – 9:42 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Malone on the defensive issues: “Everything under the sun.”
First thing he pointed to was Orlando’s 66 points in the paint. – 9:38 PM

Michael Malone postgame in Orlando: “You can’t play one quarter of defense and expect to win. We got lucky in Miami.” – 9:35 PM
Chris Dempsey @chrisadempsey
And while Orlando lived in the paint in the 2nd half — 38 points on 19/24 shooting (66 points for the game), the #Nuggets took just 7 shots….total… in the paint in the second half. And the jumpers didn’t fall at a high enough rate to hold off the Magic. – 9:35 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Orlando scores 93 points over the final three quarters. Denver’s defense let it down, as #Nuggets fall to 10-11 on the season. – 9:34 PM

“I FEEL LIKE MONEY, MAN” – @Cole Anthony to @DanteMagic after going off for 24p,8r,7a in his return. A 108-103 win for the Magic over the Nuggets. pic.twitter.com/24ue206Xdr9:30 PM

Chris Dempsey @chrisadempsey
This is two straight games now where the #Nuggets 2nd half defense has let them down. Even in the win vs. Miami, they allowed 68 in the 2nd half. Orlando shot 68 percent in the 2nd half tonight. So finishing what they start is the emphasis for Saturday at the Knicks. – 9:30 PM

Good win for the Magic to snap their losing streak. Game-winner for Franz Wagner. Good stuff all around for Orlando. – 9:26 PM

Awful loss. Doesn’t matter how many players Denver is down. Nuggets have Nikola Jokic and this was the Magic. Denver drops to 10-11. Still five games left on this road trip. – 9:25 PM

Will Barton wanted a foul on the 3, didn’t get it.

And a rare bad game from Jokic. His 18-15-7 statline doesn’t tell the story. He was really bad after the first quarter. – 9:23 PM
Evan Dunlap @BQRMagic
Gary Harris absolutely mugged Will Barton on that game-tying three-point attempt. It missed by a mile and the Magic are going to complete the double-digit comeback against Denver. – 9:23 PM

David Baumann @DavidBaumannORL
Wow, Denver looking like they have no idea what they’re doing down 3 with under 20 seconds to go. Malone screams for a timeout with 8.4 secs left. 106-103 Magic lead. – 9:20 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
That is a ludicrous timeout by Malone. The Magic will now foul up 3 with 8 seconds left to go, and the ball was in Barton’s hands who’s shooting like a million percent – 9:20 PM
