No Magic at Amway Centre
Philadelphia 76ers defeated Orlando Magic 133-103 at Amway Centre with Shake Milton leading the Philadelphia 76ers to victory with 29 points and seven assists.
For Philadelphia, who also defeated the Magic 107-99 on Friday night, Tobias Harris added 25 points. Paul Reed, another backup, contributed 12 points and 13 rebounds in addition to Danuel House Jr.'s 19 points.
Franz Wagner scored 17 points for the Magic, who lost their fourth straight game, while Paolo Banchero led Orlando with 18 points.
The 76ers shot 66% in the first half while playing their fourth straight game without their top three scorers, and when Milton drained a 3-pointer to start the third quarter, they were up 70-45.
Coach Doc Rivers was thrilled with the tenacity of his players.
"When a team wins three out of four games while missing James Harden, Tyrese Maxey, and Joel Embiid, that shows you a team is linked and can be a really good team, "Rivers remarked"
All we've been doing, according to House, is "keeping the ship afloat. "We are the only ones participating in the game's flow. The supporters would likely be more astonished because they haven't seen that kind of lineup and rotation, if anything.
The majority of Philadelphia's scoring came from Milton and Harris during a 29-10 run that began the second quarter; the Magic were never closer than 20 points after that.
“We didn’t play any (defense). That’s the reality of it right there," Magic coach Jamahl Mosley said. “It was more effort-based than anything.”
