Kemba Walker was weaving in and out of the defense throughout the fourth quarter and it was his final salvo that put a nail in the conffing for the Magic and made it a very realistic possibility that the Magic finish with the worst record in the league (and the most ping pong balls in May's NBA Draft Lottery).
Walker was trapped on the perimeter and the Magic were switching on every screen. There must have been a miscommunication or a slow rotation because Walker threw the ball toward the rim toward a flying Josh McRoberts who threw down a one-handed alley-oop that made it a six-point game and completed Charlotte's 114-108 win over Orlando at Time Warner Cable Arena.
The Bobcats still own the NBA's worst record, but are just a half game behind the Magic in the standings.
In a game with so much offense, Orlando simply ran out of fuel at the end. The Magic played only eight players and had no post players in reserve with the team sticking to its decision to shut down Al Harrington and the team not ready (or unwilling) to play Hedo Turkoglu in his first game back from suspension.
Those eight guys played too exhaustion at the end. The Bobcats closed on a 16-6 run, erasing a four-point Magic lead as the shots ran out for the Magic and the offense slowed enough to give the Bobcats control of the game.no comments
