What’s the buzz on Twitter?
Cavs had a dominant 2Q on the Pacers, then cruised to a 122-103 win.
– Carlisle called The Magic Number pregame
– Lack of 3-point shooting
– Turner’s productive play
– Why Duarte was out

In the Sixers last two losses they:
a) had an 18 point 2nd half lead before allowing a 42-20 run in under 10 min *at home to Orl.*
b) led by 20, and gave up a 17-0 run in under 4 min to NYK. Played some weak 2-3 zone to spark Fournier.
hideous – 9:21 PM
Trey Murphy subs out for the final time tonight. He finishes with 30 points on 9-11 shooting.
The only other Pelicans player to ever score 30+ in a game on 11 or fewer FGAs?
Jonas Valanciunas earlier this season vs Charlotte – 9:13 PM
FYI Trey Murphy’s career high is 32 pts (vs. Charlotte in March of rookie season). He’s showing no signs of slowing down and barely touching the rim with any of his shots tonight. Murphy 28 pts on 6/7 three-point accuracy. He made 7 treys in that same game vs. Hornets – 8:43 PM
Just noticed the Orlando Magic won earlier today for those interested in such things – 7:41 PM
Video thread of “Good and the Bad” from tonight’s Greensboro Swarm game focussing on Kai Jones and James Bouknight
The Good – Bouk driving into contact
Liked this rim attack, going straight into the defensive bigs, finishing while initiating the contact pic.twitter.com/S9jibNLJGJ – 7:35 PM
Lakeland Magic update: R.J. Hampton had a team-high 30 points on 11-of-23 shooting in 31 minutes off the bench during tonight’s 122-121 home loss to the Mexico City Capitanes. pic.twitter.com/vpqjB8E6ac – 6:44 PM
Markelle Fultz makes the game way better for the Orlando Magic. His off-ball game is getting better and he makes plays for himself.
He was great against the Hornets.
18 points / 5 assists / 3 steals / 8-13 FG
He’s always ready to bring extra effort. #MagicTogether pic.twitter.com/dVG4KX9m0g – 6:22 PM

Just finished up Hornets-Magic. FT shooting down the end and Orlando’s physicality the difference. Now time to queue and catch up the Swarm game, back to back 🏀 pic.twitter.com/KncDrxGosw – 6:00 PM
“The rebounding, defense and all the other stuff like the effort plays, we just have to be better at. It’s something we’ve been preaching about all year and we’re just not doing it.” – 4:40 PM
Has anyone else noticed that the Hornets have reduced their alley oop volume greatly this season? unless it’s in transition now, you rarely ever see it. No Plumlee reverses or Mark Williams lobs, I wonder if it’s a Cliffordism linked to % chance of turnovers? – 4:36 PM
road trip isn’t complete until everyone sings happy birthday to @Terrence Ross 😂

Before tonight, Caleb Houstan hadn’t gotten playing time for the Magic since Jan. 10. Hadn’t played rotation minutes since Jan. 5.
After that corner 3, he’s up to 8 points on 3-of-4 shooting, including two 3s, in 11 minutes. Playing his role really well.
Magic leading 101-97. – 3:00 PM
Mark Williams came in and shut down the paint. He’s going to be really good. – 2:52 PM

Paolo Banchero with 11 points in that quarter. He has 20 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists through 3 quarters. – 2:47 PM

Paolo Banchero with an 11-point third-quarter.
The @Orlando Magic rookie has 20 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 1 steal entering the 4th. – 2:46 PM
I understand saying Cam Reddish on the surface and thinking “hey, we might be able to pick up the next Kelly Oubre on the cheap”. But he’s not gotten anywhere in four years, so if you’re seeing that sort of curve in him, it’s because you want to see it, not because it’s there. – 2:45 PM
He’s had a really good season, but Hornets games feature a lot of Mason Plumlee. – 2:42 PM

That postup for Paolo with Wendell cutting into the paint from the opposite wing as been money for the Magic against the Hornets. – 2:20 PM
Halftime: Magic 62, Hornets 58.
Wendell Carter Jr.: 13 points, 5 rebounds (2 OREBs)

Middleton made some clutch shots.
Holiday made some clutch steals.
Antetokounmpo did a Magic Johnson impression.
And the Bucks won their seventh straight game.
They might not be all the way back, but they’re getting close, at @TheAthletic: theathletic.com/4156902/2023/0… – 2:05 PM
I think teams have just about given up on the idea of getting Gary Harris for a second-round pick or two. Or at least, the smart teams have.
If you want Harris, you’re going to have to give Orlando something of value for him. They love him, his contract is great and he’s good. – 2:05 PM
Controlled chaos is the best way I can describe the final 3 minutes of the first half between the Magic and Hornets. – 2:05 PM

Banchero’s next step will becoming a better off-ball defender. He’s big enough and quick enough to be more impactful than he is. I think he’ll get there eventually. – 2:03 PM
That was a ridiculously impressive pass by Bol Bol to Gary Harris for the corner 3. – 2:01 PM

End of 1Q: Hornets 37, Magic 28.
Orlando was a step behind overall defensively, especially early. Allowed Charlotte to find its rhythm.
Paolo Banchero: 7 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists
Jonathan Isaac: 6 points, 6 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 block. – 1:39 PM

Jonathan Isaac in the first quarter:
6 pts, 6 rebs, 1 stl, 1 blk in 7 mins 👀 – 1:37 PM
Looks like Caleb Houstan will be in the Magic’s rotation tonight vs. the Hornets in light of Jalen Suggs’ suspension.
Also of note: Jonathan Isaac has played 7 minutes in this first quarter. He’s played 8-10 in his previous 5 games since returning. – 1:36 PM
@LaMelo Ball | @HornetsOnBally pic.twitter.com/YfmRaLSGgW – 1:30 PM
Watching Jonathan Isaac now, I think he’s more 4/5 than 3/4. He can still switch out to the perimeter and hold his own, but he’s about a step slower. But he’s also noticeably bigger up top now. He’s done work in the paint since he returned. – 1:28 PM
Terry swoops in 💨

@Paolo Banchero pic.twitter.com/UX6U7cC07X – 1:15 PM
The @Orlando Magic have now made at least one three-point field goal in 1,265 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.
