James Harden warps Orlando Magic, exposes concerns with defense

For the past five days, the Orlando Magic have seen some of the best players the league can offer. And for the past five days, the Magic have suffered crushing defeats to all three.

There may be no shame in losing to three of the best teams in the league. The Magic may have put in a good effort (if not a directed and efficient effort) in all three. But they are all still losses.

And they are all still losses that raise some questions about their supposedly elite defense.

If the Magic are going to make the playoffs and be the team they can be, it all starts on the defensive end.
