1. Bad defense by Turkoglu- Hedo Turkoglu was picked on repeatedly by Ron Artest, who finished with 23 points. Turk had an off night on the defensive end.
2. Jameer couldn't throw it in the ocean from the beach- Jameer finished with 6 points on 1 for 11 shooting. Nelson ran the offense well, as he had 7 assists and only one turnover, but he struggled shooting the ball.
3. Slow first half rotations- The Magic defense was in slow motion for much of the first half, and the Kings had plenty of wide open shots. Orlando picked things up in the third quarter.
Orlando played a solid game after a slow start and won their third consecutive home game. The Magic hit the road again as they take on New Jersey and Philadelphia on Tuesday and Wednesday, before heading back home to take on the hapless Knicks Saturday night.
