NBA: Wagner show at Orlando Magic victory

Franz and Moritz Wagner shine for Orlando in Charlotte, promptly there is a Magic victory. The Golden State Warriors dominate the Chicago Bulls, where another star gets injured. Dennis Schröder caught a completely used evening against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Charlotte Hornets (23-20) – Orlando Magic (8-35) 109:116 (BOXSCORE)

  • The Wagner brothers put on a real show in Charlotte, almost single-handedly leading the struggling Magic to victory. Moritz Wagner booked 26 points from the bench, his brother Franz scored 19 points – the two Germans were also able to convince with their efficiency (19/28 FG combined).
  • Charlotte suffered a surprise defeat after their last four straight wins, despite all five starters scoring in double figures, led by Lamelo Ball with 23 points. The big difference in bench scoring was striking, with Orlando’s second guard throwing in 55 points compared to a meager 19 for the hosts.
  • Defensive deficits were evident on both sides in the first quarter. Both Charlotte and Orlando believed in the motto “attack is the best defense”. The game developed into an open exchange of blows, from the point of view of the hosts it was +2 at the break (63:61).
  • There were highlights mainly at the offensive end of the floor, like this sequence of LaMelo Balls with a triple, followed by a steal and a spectacular Jamal Crawford-style lob pass.
  • After a balanced third quarter, the Magic pulled away in the last section after a 13-0 run, the Hornets were no longer offensive in the final phase. None other than Mo Wagner put a big exclamation mark and at the same time the end with a poster dunk before the end.
