They also bettered their match winning streaks in January and February by yet another unbeaten record of 7 games in last month. In their last outing, they got the better off Grizzlies in convincing fashion extending their glorious run this season.
The Orlando Magic is far off from playing the post season games after a bumpy regular season for the underdog side. They have currently settled at 13th spot with 17 triumphs and 31defeats in 48 games.
After getting off to a great start, it seemed like it was the breakthrough that they were looking for when they took down Wizards and Thunder in the subsequent games. But their campaign started to tail away after continuous defeats in the first two months of 2021. Even though it looked like everyone was going against them, they have secured victories against Clippers and Pelicans in the last two games this month.
