Fading Magic tip off five-game road trip at Hawks

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

The struggling Orlando Magic will try to find some answers away from home on Monday when they begin a five-game road trip in Atlanta against the Hawks, who have proven to be one of the NBA’s best teams in their own building. The Magic’s starting lineup on opening night was the youngest for any team to begin a season in NBA history dating back to when the league began tracking starters in 1970-71.

Cole Anthony has led or shared Orlando’s scoring lead eight times and averages 19.5 points, 6.9 rebounds and 5.2 assists. “We did a better job competing, but overall there are so many little things that go into winning a game that we failed to do.”

Defense has been an issue for Orlando, which is now 2-9 when surrendering 100 or more points. The Hawks won all three games against the Magic last season.
