Halftime: Kings 72, Magic 52.
Orlando’s had no answer for Sacramento’s high-octane offense.
Kings had a hot start. Once they started missing, they grabbed the OREBs. They closed out half well, attacking the paint and spraying out for 3s. We’ll see how the Magic respond. – 11:07 PM

Magic are shooting 3/8 from the field in this quarter. Kings are 4/17.
Orlando needs to limit Sacramento to one shot on each possession to make an even bigger dent in this deficit. – 10:54 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
Third foul on Huerter. – 10:53 PM

The @Orlando Magic have been at their best all season when their defense fuels their offense. They’ll need more plays like that if they want to make a comeback in Sacramento. – 10:49 PM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
Bench energy is way different (better) with Malik Monk. – 10:45 PM
Khobi Price @khobi_price
Kings started missing shots, but Magic not consistently grabbing the DREBs to make it count.

Yeah, until the Kings add a different option, Chimezie Metu should be the backup center. – 10:34 PM
Khobi Price @khobi_price
Cole Anthony’s made significant growth as a passer since he’s been in the league, especially with his interior passing over the last year or so. – 10:32 PM

Magic can’t get sucked into the Kings’ pace. Need to lock in and sharpen up things defensively, especially at the point of attack.
Kings lead 24-16 with 5:41 in the 1Q. – 10:23 PM
