Serge Ibaka led the team with 21 points, eight rebounds and three blocks, Evan Fournier added 18 points while Bismack Biyombo added a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds off the bench but the Magic really shot themselves in the foot with a season-worst 24 turnovers, 19 of which came in the first half.
