On Tuesday night, Orlando Magic applied some magic to their game as they won with a score of 104-98 against the Miami Heat. It was a thrilling overtime victory and this win is considered to be one of the biggest victories of Orlando Magic for this season.
Aside from that, Dwight has also turned the tables on what has been the biggest player soap opera of this NBA regular season. Minutes before the team seemed to come back to their senses and worked very hard to score even more in order to beat Heat, Howard took back his preseason trade request and said that he has told his team officials that he wanted to stay with the team for remainder of the season.
“Well, I told those guys, I’ve been telling them for the past two or three weeks now that I want to stay and finish the season,” Dwight Howard said. “I told them I feel we have a great opportunity to win and I told them that I want to be here and I want to bring a championship here. I told them they’ve got to give me that chance. They didn’t trade me at the beginning of the season and I told them I’d go out and play as hard as I could every night to put our team in a position to win.”
In the recently held game between the Magic and Heat, Howard scored 24 points for Orlando Magic with and addition of 25 rebounds. Aside from Howard, Jameer Nelson also scored 25 points, including in the fourth quarter and overtime. Looks like Magic is really determined to make it in this season’s championship.
