Can the Magic recover?

The Orlando Magic lost to the Philadelphia 76ers on February 2nd with a score of 105-94 after defeating them a few days prior. The 10-time All-Star James Harden was on fire, scoring 26 points, dishing out 10 assists, and pulling down 9 rebounds—just missing a triple-double. Joel Embiid led the 76ers to win with an outstanding 28 points and 11 rebounds.

The Magic attempted to slow down the 76ers’ offense in the first half, but they ran out of steam in the second. For the Magic, Markelle Fultz scored 18 points. The Magic are thought to be the most improved team in the NBA, but they will need to pick their shots carefully, especially three-pointers since they only made 6 of their past 36 attempts from beyond the arc.

Can the Hornets manage one more win?

The Hornets went face to face against the Miami Heat in their last Home game on 29th Jan. They displayed a good offensive display against the Miami and defeated them with a score of 122-117. Terry Rozier made 31 points with 7 assists and 6 rebounds. While P.J. Washington and LaMelo Ball made 27 and 19 respectively.

The Heats were giving a tough challenge to the Hornets till the last quarter. Jimmy butler made 28 points while Tyler Herro scored 24 for the Heat. The defensive lag by the Miami Heat was creating a problem that allowed the Hornets to score some easy layups. This allowed the Hornets to change the momentum of the game and take it to victory.
