Jamahl Mosley Explains Reason Behind Magic Loss vs. Pacers

The Orlando Magic has lost two games in a row, and it comes as a result of some not great shooting, both from the field and from the three-point line.

The Orlando Magic just lost two games in a row for the first time since later January. The team has lost to the New York Knicks and the Indiana Pacers, and scored less than 100 points in both games.

The team has some struggles with shooting in both games, and Magic coach Jamahl Mosley talked more about what the team can do in his postgame interview after the team's last loss to the Pacers.

“Well, I think we did miss some around the rim, and I think when you miss around the rim you got guys crashing and they threw about four over the top," Mosley said. "Part of that is the leak out and so you got to make sure one, finish. Two, if you don’t, they’re tapping it out and that’s where those long run outs come into play. But again, I want to go back and look at it to see exactly where there [are] areas for clean up and what adjustments we need to make moving forward.” 

The team only scored 74 points against the Knicks, and it shot less than 40 percent from the field in both losses. The Magic also struggled from three, as it shot 25 percent in the first loss and 23 percent in the second.

If the Magic can improve its shooting, then it could be in great position to make a push in the last stage of the regular season. The team has an eight-game home stand coming up, and it could use that to its advantage to finish strong.

The Magic will be looking to bounce back in their next game on Wednesday against Mikal Bridges and the Brooklyn Nets. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. ET from the Kia Center.
