ORLANDO MAGIC WIN AT SACRAMENTO KINGS
Fri, 11 Mar 2011 04:47 AM EST

There is no question about how much Dwight Howard means to Orlando Magic at the moment. In their previous game, the Magic played without him and they were utterly crushed, but this time, versus the Sacramento Kings (not much of an opposition, we know, but still…), they had Howard and they were amazing. Vegas odds.

“I call it wonderman basketball,” Gilbert Arenas stated. “He’s out there, but he’s not out there.”

The first quarter started as they do most of the time for Sacramento. There probably few teams out there which managed to take the lead after the first quarter, and then just play miserably in the following three. Something is happening there, because you can’t just say their opposition isn’t taking them seriously EVERY SINGLE TIME. However, the first quarter ended 29-33, and it looked like the Magic could face a humiliating defeat.

“We played poorly. We didn’t put much into the game, got crushed on the glass. I’m not happy, but we got a win. We’ll take it and move on,” Stan van Gundy, Orlando Magic coach, stated. “We’ve said [we'll change] a lot. We say a lot of things.” van Gundy looked positively frustrated and bewildered by his team’s performance. Betting lines.

The Orlando Magic continued to play poorly throughout the second quarter. Their defense was obviously not at its best, and they could have done way better on the offense, at least when considering their opposition. Well, at least they managed to shave off one point from their deficit. The second quarter score was 27-26, and the overall score 56-59.

“There were so many really good things about that game for our team. I just hate to come in here and talk about that close loss against a good team, but that’s what it was,” Paul Westphal, Sacramento Kings coach, stated. “We had too many turnovers again, and it wasted a really, really, good effort.”

In the third quarter, the torment continued for both teams. They could do nothing to outscore each other, and the Kings knew they needed much more if they wanted to win this game. Meanwhile, the Orlando players looked like they are somehow missing the point. Both teams scored 20 points and the score before the final quarter was 76-79.

Dwight Howard’s double-double and a good fourth quarter allowed the Magic to finally turn it around and win the game. The fourth quarter score was 30-23, and the game ended 106-102. Sports scores.
