They did not quite...
The losing streak is at 10. Not any temporal streak. The Magic won Friday night after all.
This is a 10-game losing sterak against Atlanta, a team that has somehow figured out Orlando. The tables have turned in this rivalry. Or perhaps it is just one Playoff team beating a non-Playoff team. The better team just found a way.
Orlando opened up a lead in the first half, but...
