Bobcats 105, Magic 92: Gerald Henderson, Kemba Walker too much for Orlando defense.

Kemba Walker - USA TODAY Sports

Charlotte's backcourt helped the Bobcats take a 20-point lead into halftime, and the visitors held on against Orlando.

The Orlando Magic rested during the All-Star Break, but their bleeding didn't stop in their first game back in action. The losses keep piling up. On Tuesday night, Orlando hosted the Charlotte Bobcats and fell, 105-92, in a game that resembled their previous loss to the Bobcats on January 18th.

Shooting guard Gerald Henderson got off to a fast start in the first quarter, scoring 14 points on 5-of-6 shooting. Sounds familiar, right? He did something similar in the January game by scoring nine points in the first. He and Kemba Walker finished with 24 points for game-high honors.

The Magic trailed by as many as 22 points and Charlotte to hit nearly 60 percent of its shots in the second quarter alone. For the entire game, they let the Bobcats shoot 46.9 percent.

"We dug ourselves a pretty deep hole," coach Jacque Vaughn said.

Orlando had six of its players score in double-digits against the Bobcats.

Rookie power forward Andrew Nicholson notched his second double-double of the season. Nikola Vucevic also tallied a double-double.

The Magic will travel to Texas to face the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday at 8:30 PM EST.
