ORLANDO, Fla. — After giving up a 12-point halftime lead, the Orlando Magic recovered with enough baskets and key stops down the stretch to grind out a big win.
Serge Ibaka scored 16 points and Nikola Vucevic broke out of his shooting slump with 10 points and 14 rebounds to help lift the Magic to an 89-82 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night.
After Terrence Jones’ basket pulled New Orleans to 84-82, Vucevic made back-to-back shots in the waning moments for the win.
“We are going to keep fighting, keep trying to find a way,” said Vucevic, who finished 10 points and 14 rebounds. “We’re not playing really good basketball right now, it’s not easy to get stuff going and get into the flow but we just have to find ways to get wins until we figure that out.”
