The numbers tell the story:
- 1: the number of Magic offensive rebounds
- 8: the number of Grizzlies offensive rebounds
Based on that, you'd think we'd be losing. But that is just not the case:
- 30: the number of points the Magic scored on three-pointers (10-of-17 shooting)
- .735: the Magic's eFG%
The Grizzlies made a bit of a run midway through the period, scoring 8 straight points after a timeout, but the Magic regrouped and have taken control. Hedo Turkoglu is puzzling Memphis defenders; they just can't guard him on the pick-and-roll. He has 18 points on just 9 shots.
I'd say we have this one in the bag, but we only lead by 10. Let's not forget we blew a game to the Bobcats last Wednesday with an even bigger halftime lead. It's not over until it's over... even against the Grizzlies.
UPDATE: The 10 first-half treys set a franchise record.
