Bobcats get destroyed by Orlando

The Bobcats hosted the Magic last night and they got whooped to the tune of 71-60! The Magic raced out to a 6-1 lead to start the game and never looked back despite being without Davis and with D12 and Ryan Anderson getting into foul trouble. Love and Walker got into foul trouble as well. The Magic were leading 19-5 in the first quarter before the Bobcats got some life to their step. The Bobcats went on a 9-2 run to finish the quarter, the Magic took a 21-14 lead into the second quarter. The Magic opened the second quarter on a 13-4 run to go up 34-18. With Ryan Anderson and D12 having three fouls each in the second the Cats were able to go on a 6-0 run to finish the quarter to cut the Magic lead to 34-24.
D12 picked up his 4th foul seven seconds into the fourth quarter. Due to Howard and Ryan's foul trouble the Bobcats were able to keep pace, despite Justin Harper hitting lights out from behind the three point line! The Magic won the third quarter by 2 points and took a 51-39 lead into the fourth quarter. 58 seconds the Bobcats were within eight points of the Magic 51-43, but this was the closest they were able to get. Kevin Love picked up his 5th foul with 1:33 left and the Magic went up 65-52 and the Fat Lady began to warm up her voice as the Magic won the game 71-60.

Odd Stat: Eric Gordon was 3-12 from beyond the arc and cost the Bobcats the game with his poor shooting.

New Cards

Hedo Turkoglu suffered a twisted ankle. He returned to finish the game.
