Career high 6 steals now for Kelly Oubre. – 9:09 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone
Referee Marc Davis called LaMelo for yet another carrying violation. That’s two, both called by Davis. Steve Clifford and LaMelo were both questioning Davis’ call long after the play was over. – 9:06 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
James Bouknight looking like he will finish the game with just 4 minutes played, without any playing time in the second half. – 9:05 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
Real test for the Hornets here, certainly some questionable shot selection and “gamble” defense going on during the 4th quarter – 9:01 PM
Khobi Price @khobi_price
Magic are on an 8-0 run and trail 96-87 with 7:44 remaining.
Big shots by Chuma and Bol to get Orlando close. – 9:00 PM

would you rather have Bol Ball or LaMelo Bol – 8:57 PM

Steve Clifford unhappy they are getting lazy on defense and not running back. He angrily calls a timeout. #Hornets lead 93-76. – 8:52 PM

Great ATO ran there by the #Hornets to get Kelly an easy dunk. Nicely drawn up by Steve Clifford and the staff. Lead is 70-56. – 8:33 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Vincent 3. #Heat 7-of-8 from deep .
#Suns down only five, but this is after allowing Orlando, a 29.5% shooting team from 3 go to 15-of-33.
#Heat is a 34.3% shooting team from 3. – 8:01 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone
Kai Jones second-quarter sighting. – 8:00 PM
Cody Taylor @CodyTaylorNBA
The Magic have 12 turnovers in the first half and are ‘only’ down 12 to the Hornets. It feels like they should be down much more. Charlotte only shooting 3-15 from 3. – 8:00 PM

LaMelo had that nice drive with the shot clock on his back, but other than that has struggled to beat his man off the dribble and get in the lane tonight. Maybe still getting his burst back with that ankle – 7:43 PM

anytime Franz Wagner gets downhill it’s like an automatic two points – 7:39 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
One of the better quarters of defense from Charlotte. Forced 6TOs, guarded the 3 point line, rebounded and defended without fouling. Some poor defense on Wagner at the end, but other than that solid – 7:38 PM
Khobi Price @khobi_price
End of 1Q: Hornets 31, Magic 23.
In addition to the turnovers, the Hornets’ 6 OREB for 11 second-chance points are hurting the Magic. Orlando’s been a good rebounding team, so uncharacteristic.
Mo Bamba: 8 points, 3 rebounds
Franz Wagner: 8 points – 7:38 PM
Evan Dunlap @BQRMagic
More worryingly, the Magic have allowed the Hornets to rebound six of a possible 11 misses. Orlando is a good rebounding team so this shouldn’t be an issue. – 7:37 PM
