After sliding past the Anthony Davis-less Pelicans on Wednesday, the Magic found themselves once again in a dogfight against a shorthanded Dallas Mavericks bunch on Saturday. Thanks to a big fourth quarter outburst from D.J. Augustin, and stellar play from fellow bench mate Bismack Biyombo, the Magic were able to slow down the Mavericks hot three-point shooting just enough to pull out the victory. It's still a work in progress, but the Magic have seen significant improvements on the defensive end, something that will be vital moving forward.
Game time is set for 8:00 PM Eastern at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. The game can be seen on FoxSports Florida and heard on ESPN580 Orlando.
