Orlando Magic miss Nikola Vucevic’s attention to detail most of all

Orlando Magic coach Steve Clifford was upset with his team following their 110-101 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday. Less upset perhaps, than disappointed.

His team had the tools to complete an 18-point comeback against the best team in the Eastern Conference and let it slip through their fingers. They did so by not doing the things the team has to hang its hat on. The details that matter for their defense — proper rotations, finishing possessions with rebounds and moving the ball.

Ultimately, he wants his team to be able to compete with teams like the Bucks — the 22-3 behemoth that has now won 15 games in a row.
