NBA Game Summary - Orlando at Golden State|
(Monday, December 3rd)
Final Score: Orlando 102, Golden State 94
Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - J.J. Redick netted 17 of his 22 points in the
second half on Monday night, as the Orlando Magic bested the Golden State
Warriors, 102-94, at Oracle Arena.
Glen Davis and Arron Afflalo poured in 24 points apiece, while Nikola Vucevic
donated 14 points and 15 rebounds for the Magic, who have won the first two
games of their current five-game West Coast swing.
"We're trying to win one game at a time and work with what we have here to
work with," Davis said. "We're trying to play together as a team and that's
what we're really doing well right now."
Stephen Curry recorded a double-double with 25 points and 11 assists and David
Lee chipped in 22 points and nine boards in the setback, snapping Golden
State's three-game win streak.
"They were the more aggressive team," Warriors coach Mark Jackson admitted of
the Magic. "They outworked us; we haven't been outworked in a long time."
With the game locked at 72-72 two minutes into the fourth, E'Twaun Moore
buried a 3-pointer to spark a 10-2 Magic surge, which Redick capped with a
triple to make it 82-74 with 7 1/2 minutes left in the game.
Curry quelled the run with a trey of his own, but Davis converted a three-
point play at the other end to press the margin back to eight.
Orlando would hold the Warriors at bay from there, never allowing the home
team to get closer than eight the rest of the way en route to the victory.
Early on, Golden State led by as many as six late in the first after Carl
Landry capped a 6-0 surge with a jumper, but the Magic scored the final seven
points of the stanza to take a 28-27 edge into the second.
Neither team led by more than six in a tightly contest second quarter, as
Jameer Nelson nailed a late 3-pointer to send the Magic into the locker room
clinging to a 51-47 advantage.
Orlando looked poised to distance itself late in the third after Redick netted
seven straight points in a 9-0 Magic run, but the Warriors closed the quarter
with a swift 6-0 surge to send the game into the fourth knotted at 69-69.
The Warriors had won five in a row at home ... Landry finished with nine
points and 10 boards off the bench ... Orlando turned 14 Golden State
turnovers into 23 points ... The Warriors tied a season high with five blocks.
