Found April 01, 2013 on Orlando Magic Daily:
You had to do a double take when you looked at the scoreboard as Beno Udrih drained a three-point with about two minutes left in the game. Could this result be real? Could the Magic have made it all the way back from a 25-point deficit in a game the Rockets were tearing up the interior defense with the pick and roll and eating the Magic's defense alive? They did not quite make it all the way back. They never got closer than five points, with Nikola Vucevic failing each time to make a shot that would have pulled the Magic closer. A 25-point deficit and porous defense for the majority of the game outweighed the fight Orlando always has to get back into the game as Houston pulled out a 111-103 victory at Toyota Center on Monday.   Score Off.
