Starting with Sunday’s matchup against the Charlotte Hornets, the Magic will play seven of their next eight games at home. The one road game in that span will take Orlando down I-4 to face the Toronto Raptors at Amalie Arena in Tampa.
Fournier, though, struggled at the free throw line, hitting just 6 of 12 attempts after entering the night shooting nearly 90% from the stripe. The Magic overall left easy points on the board that came back to prove costly (15-for 24 from the free-throw line for the Magic, 16-for-18 for the Pacers). Free throws and turnovers turned what would have been a Magic win into a loss.
This has been Malcolm Brogdon's team for quite some time, even before the Indiana Pacers traded away Victor Oladipo. Friday, he cemented his hold on the franchise with a game-winning 3-pointer to erase a five-point overtime deficit to beat the Orlando Magic, 120-118. "He seems cool and calm but at the same time he's the one who's motivating us and firing us up," said Myles Turner in his first game back after missing two in a row with a broken bone in his right hand.
