Dwight Howard had 28 points, 12 rebounds, and was just 3 assists shy of a triple double to help the Orlando Magic blow out the Milwaukee Bucks 106-80 Wednesday night. Hedo Turkoglu netted 14 points with 10 rebounds as the Magic went on to earn their eighth win in 10 games.
The Bucks are fighting desperately for the last spot in the playoffs with a 31-39 record. Their next game will be against the Portland Trailblazers at home before they hit the road for four games.
The win for Orlando marked their second consecutive season with 50+ wins. “Other people can downplay winning a division title or winning 50 games,” said head coach Stan Van Gundy. “I’m appreciative of our guys’ effort and what it takes to get to 50 wins. To do it two years in a row is a measure of your organization getting better and getting some consistency. Look for the Magic to host the New York Knicks for their next game on Saturday, March 21st.
