Orlando snapped a five-game road losing streak to the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night after strong efforts from rookie Aaron Gordon and sophomore Victor Oladipo. Both players scored eight points in the final quarter, while Gordon also pulled down six boards on top of his 4-for-4 shooting late. The Bucks entered the fourth quarter up by just one, 73-72, but with the Magic connecting on 53 percent of their shots along with Milwaukee going 1-for-5 at the line down the stetch, Orlando ended up stealing a victory.
"As a team," head coach Jason Kidd said, "we came out and took control early. After that, give credit to Orlando. They kept playing. They played hard and they found themselves in the game, and they ended up winning."
Orlando had six players score in double-figures, with former Buck Tobias Harris leading all scorers with 23 points (8-for-15 shooting), while also grabbing 10 rebounds. Ersan Ilyasova led all Bucks players with 18 points.
