Orlando Magic Daily:
Los Angeles Lakers
Golden State Warriors
The 2009 Magic now have company at the top of the record books.
Last night, the Rockets defeated the Warriors 140-109, tying an NBA record with 23 3-pointers in the game. This ties the mark the Magic set in 2009 in Sacramento when the Magic hit 23 3-pointers in a perfect storm of spacing and shooting. If there was any game that exemplified what the Stan Van Gundy-era teams were about it was this game.
The Magic used Dwight Howard to clog up the middle and draw the defense in and then great perimeter ball movement to find open 3-pointers. And it helped having great 3-point shooters like Jameer Nelson, Hedo Turkoglu, Rashard Lewis and J.J. Redick. Yes, Turkoglu could actually hit a 3-pointer back then.
The Kings though were not much of anything and had no one to handle Howard. Again, a perfect storm.
Last night's Rockets game was something else.
