Nuggets 119, Magic 116: Jokic spoils Orlando’s second-half comeback

In a game that came down to the last possession, the Magic unfortunately found themselves on the wrong side of the scoreboard after some late Nikola Jokic heroics. Despite erasing a fifteen-point half-time deficit the team couldn’t hold the Nuggets off in the final minute, falling 119-116 on a Jokic game-winner.

Markelle Fultz pulled the right strings early, drilling two mid-range jumpers and a three while also finding Paolo Banchero with a wonderful pass for a corner triple. His fast start allowed the Magic to jump out to a 13-7 advantage, a valuable stretch against a tough opponent.
