MILWAUKEE -- Missing three-fifths of their regular starting lineup, the Orlando Magic could have been easy pickings for a surging Milwaukee Bucks team looking to snap a two-game losing streak. Instead, the Magic made things tough on Milwaukee, which responded to every attempt at an Orlando rally before pulling away late for a 107-98 victory at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. The battered Magic lost their ninth game in a row. Already without Glen Davis, who underwent surgery on his broken foot Friday and is expected to be out for the next two to three months, the Magic took the court Saturday without leading scorer Arron Afflalo, whose strained hip has kept him out of four games, and Jameer Nelson, who bruised his left forearm Friday night against Boston.

Getting to know the Magic: Jacque Vaughn
