Game Recap

The Memphis Grizzlies fell to the Orlando Magic 118-86 inside of the Amway Center on Friday night on the front end of the team’s first back-to-back slate of the season.

The Grizzlies trailed the Magic 84-78 after three quarters, but a poor start to the fourth quarter would allow the Magic to break the game open. The Magic would go on to outscore the Grizzlies 34-8 in the final quarter as the Grizzlies dropped to 2-6 on the season.

Through the first three quarters, the Grizzlies were 29-of-63 from the floor (46.0 percent) and 9-of-20 from behind the arc (45.0 percent), however the Grizzlies struggled to get anything to fall in the fourth quarter as they shot 3-of-23 from the field and 2-of-9 from deep in the final period. The Grizzlies came in to the night leading the NBA in paint points per game at 57.7; however the Magic controlled the paint, outscoring the Grizz 62-34.
