Jazz 112, Magic 108: Orlando falls short in frantic final minutes

A frantic few final minutes ultimately didn’t fall in Orlando’s favor on Friday night, the Magic losing a tough one in Salt Lake City by a final count of 112-108.

Both teams were careless through the opening quarter, with some questionable shot attempts and wayward passes evident at each end of the court. An aggressive Franz Wagner got Orlando’s offense rolling before a pair of Wendell Carter Jr. triples provided scoring support, important points considering the unfriendly whistle that the team was dealing with. Terrence Ross and Moritz Wagner both buried jumpers shortly after checking in, but a late 8-0 burst by Lauri Markkanen pushed the Jazz in front as the Magic failed to keep pace.
