Magic vs Sixers: What Didn't Work

The Magic manhandled a poor Philadelphia team on Friday night, and really didn't do much wrong. We at Magic Illustrated are now going to point out a few things that didn't exactly go right for the Magic.

Here were some of the challenges Orlando faced:
1. Four 76ers scored 18 or better- The Magic allowed big games by the Andre's (Miller and Iguodala), Louis Williams, and Willie Green. Each had better than 18 points, and the Andre's each had 25.

2. Fourth quarter defense- Orlando allowed 33 fourth quarter points by Philly, and at one point the 76ers trimmed the Magic lead down to six.

3. First quarter turnovers- The Magic had five turnovers in the first quarter, and it appeared as if Philadelphia would effectively drag Orlando down to their sloppy offensive level.
