With a mere 47.8 seconds remaining before the team would extend it’s season high win streak to four, the Orlando Magic got hit with the injury bug again. Forward Glen Davis, one of the teams captains and the vocal and emotional lead for the team, was fouled hard by Emeka Okafor of the Washington Wizards. Davis suffered a sprained left shoulder and was listed as out for 4-6 weeks.
When the buzzer sounded at the end of the game, the Magic walked off the court victorious. That victory was the last for the team who went through turmoil all of last season with the Dwight Howard Saga.
After Davis was injured, the Magic encountered their first three point or less game of the season, losing to the Toronto raptors 93-90. Their woes continued and the close losses started to pile up, losing their next two to the Utah Jazz and New Orleans Hornets by a combined seven points. After blow out’s at the hands of Washington and Toronto, the Magic fought hard and found themselves on the losing end of games to the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls. Both losses came by two points.
