The Bobcats were on a five game losing streak and in their last 22 games had lost 21, so for them to win here was a huge task. Also if i told you that as one stage of the game they had a 20 point deficit to overcome you will probably fall off your chair!
Corey Maggette made 29 points for the Bobcats as they gave a strong performance after being poor in the first quarter. Dwight Howard scored 15 points for the Magic and 17 rebounds but he couldn’t do it all himself. The loss is a shock but it was going to happen some time or another.
Magic Coach Stan Van Gundy said: “We deserved to lose and they deserved to win. This is how we’ve played a lot lately. We try to pick spurts in the game to play, but we’ve been able to turn it around at times and then bounce back. We’ve gotten away with it and we’re happy getting away with it. We’re not trying to become a great team. We’re not putting the effort in mentally or physically to do that. Quite honestly, we got what we deserved.”
