The Orlando Magic are having a bad 2016 so far. They have lost 8 out of 9 games, they have only won one game in 2016, and they have fallen below .500 with a 20-21 record.
This week the Magic lost to the Sixers. The Sixers! The team notorious for giving up on each season before it starts to gram yet another high draft pic. The Sixers have the worst record in the league, yet managed to take down the boys in Blue 96-87. The Magic were without Victor Oladipo due to injury and the losing continued.
Tonight the Magic face a surging Charlotte Hornets team at the Amway Center. They are searching for answers as loyal fans are freaking out and casual fans see things as business as usual.
“They are who we thought they were” one fan chimed in on twitter. “Business as usual: mediocrity”
The team had a solid start, breaking previous records of futility with multiple game wining streaks and even having a record over .500. But after December west coast tour the magic have looked fatigues and have yet to seem to recover. The injury to Elfrid Payton didn’t help. Oladipo stepped up and tried to provide the energy that the team needed, but now he’s hurt with a knee injury.
Oladipo hopes to be back for tonight’s game, but who know’s what team will show up around him tonight. Stay tuned.
