Magic make Warriors disappear

MIAMI (AFP) — Jalen Suggs nailed a pair of late three-pointers as the Orlando Magic sent the Golden State Warriors crashing to a fourth straight defeat in the National Basketball Association on Thursday.

The 21-year-old Suggs scored nine points inside the final two minutes as the Magic overcame a 39-point display from Stephen Curry to score a surprise 130-129 victory over the reigning NBA champions.
Suggs led the scoring for Orlando with 26 points, while rookie No.1 Draft pick Paolo Banchero impressed again with 22 points.

Franz Wagner also provided offensive support with 19 points, one of seven Orlando players who finished in double digits.

“This is such an amazing team,” Suggs said.

“We’ve been doing everything the right way all season.”

“We’ve come up short in a couple of tough ones, a couple of close ones. And we just stuck with it. We had a real heart to heart conversation last night, just the players and the coaching staff, about what we need to do to change the culture.”

“We need to get used to winning, get used to moments like this when we finish and close it out, which is exactly what we did today. It was a great a great team win, we stuck together through their big runs and closed it out.”

The win improved Orlando’s record to 2-7, although the Magic remain rooted to the bottom of the Eastern Conference.
