Cohen Courtside: Storylines vs. Mavs
Cohen’s Analysis: It’s encouraging, on one hand, that practically every Magic loss is one that was decided in the last few minutes. It implies the team is playing with great effort and resilience. It’s frustrating, on the other hand, that Orlando has not been able to close out most of the thrillers it has competed in. Sunday was another example. If Darren Collison doesn’t bury that corner 3-pointer with 31 seconds left, it would have been the perfect opportunity for the Magic to try and finish off an opponent in the final seconds.
