76ers vs Orlando Magic
In 2005, Philadelphia 76ers legend Allen Iverson recorded his career high against the Orlando Magic when he dropped 50 points during a February game at The Center. It was six years prior, though, in a first round matchup in the 1999 NBA playoffs, that the Iverson-led Sixers started to make their mark on the league, winning a first-round playoff series against Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway’s team 3 games to 1. Two years later, AI would take his squad to their first Eastern Conference title since 1983.
Since the Orlando Magic joined the NBA via expansion in 1989, there have been several other memorable matchups with the Philadelphia 76ers, including games that featured stars like the dominant Shaquille O'Neal and former 76er Dwight Howard. These two teams square off four times in the 2021-22 NBA regular season, twice in Orlando and twice at The Center in South Philly.
