The Memphis Grizzlies went into Orlando and took care of business in a dominant 135-115 win against the Magic. Six players in the white and navy scored in double figures leading the Grizzlies to this convincing victory.
By no means is this surprising as Memphis were the heavy favourites against an Orlando team that is among the bottom of the NBA. However, it’s games like this that catch many teams off guard especially a young team like the Grizzlies. This win is a testament to the poise and respect they have for whoever their opponent is.
This was complete dominance in all facets in all categories especially with their efficiency from the field shooting over 50 percent from the field. With the Grizzlies deserving all the praise meant for them, let’s give some spotlight to the Orlando Magic.
Tip of the hat to the Orlando Magic
The Orlando Magic struggled as a team but Cole Anthony was the one bright spot for this young team. He led the team in scoring and was carrying them on the offensive side of the ball in many ways.
The second-year guard finished with 22 points, six rebounds, and five assists on 57 percent shooting from the field. Alongside rookie Franz Wagner, they were the only two players in the starting lineup for the Magic to shoot above 50 percent from the field.
There isn’t much to take away with a young rebuilding team like this, but Anthony gives the Magic fanbase something to look forward to in the future.
With that being said let’s now look at some studs and duds from the Memphis Grizzlies win against the Orlando Magic
