Flash: Gordon lights up Suns
in points for a game for the second consecutive night. They put up 127 in a win at Washington on Tuesday and eclipsed that 24 hours later at home. The two-night outburst marks only the third time in Magic history they have scored 125 points or more in consecutive games.
Gordon wasn’t the only Magic player with the hot hand as Orlando showed glimpses of last season’s team and its ability to make shots. Orlando, which started the season as one of the worst shooting teams in the NBA, made nearly 60% (57.6) of its field goals against the Suns and everyone was feeling it.
Six Magic players hit double digits in scoring and three players scored more than 20 points. Terrence Ross had 22 points, Evan Fournier 21, Markelle Fultz 13 and D.J. Augustin and Mo Bamba 11 each.
The Magic also were rolling on defense, showing extra urgency
