1. Hedo Turkoglu's stats- Turkoglu finished with 25 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists, while shooting 10-17 from the field. Unfortunately for Orlando, 5 of his 25 points came within the final minute when the game was long since decided.Orlando has played mostly uninspired basketball for much of this homestand, as referenced by their 1-3 record. All the "good feelings" that built up in the Magic's narrow victories over Eastern Conference bottom-dwellers Miami, Philadelphia, and Indiana have now been replaced with a harsh dose of reality against the league's better teams. Orlando must find a way to bounce back with a victory over Denver Wednesday night and stop the current tailspin that they're experiencing.
2. Jameer Nelson offensively- Jameer continued his solid play, scoring 22 points, dishing out 4 assists, and grabbing 4 rebounds.
3. Ball-handling- The Magic committed just 10 turnovers which led to only 7 Cavalier points. Imagine how bad the score could've been if they didn't take care of the ball.
