Orlando Magic can beat anybody if they choose to have their breakthrough

Orlando Magic coach Steve Clifford was animated in his postgame press conference after his team’s 96-87 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

His team had tied the game in the fourth quarter before making critical mistakes on the glass and in their defensive rotations that cost them the game. The Lakers stretched the lead back out thanks to key shots after the Magic broke at least some of their defensive rules.

That does not even mention the team’s nine-point first quarter and the seven offensive rebounds the Magic gave up in the first 12 minutes.
