The season has been one of streaks so far for the Magic. Orlando opened the season with road losses in Indiana and Minnesota and then reeled off impressive home wins against New Orleans, Brooklyn and the Los Angeles Clippers. However, the Magic then dropped games to Boston (twice) and Atlanta before grabbing a win on Wednesday night.

O.J. Mayo scored 25 points for Milwaukee, which was without Larry Sanders, Brandon Knight, Gary Neal, Ersan Ilyasova and Zaza Pachulia because of injuries.

Vucevic had 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Magic. Rookie guard Victor Oladipo scored 10 points off the bench. Veteran point guard Ronnie Price, who had played just 21 minutes in the first eight games of the season, gave the Magic a key spark off the bench with seven rebounds, two assists, two points and some gritty defense on Mayo.

``I was just trying to provide some energy because I thought we came out a little casual to start the game. The one thing that was missing was some energy and I just tried to do the best that I could,’’ said Price, who was a plus-eight points in his 25 minutes. ``I just enjoy playing and I enjoy the game of basketball. Any time you get to be on the court, I try to have fun. There’s no reason not to have fun playing basketball. We’re very blessed and fortunate to play this game at this level and I don’t take it for granted.’’
