Orlando, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Arron Afflalo put on a shooting clinic in
leading a second-half rally that propelled the Orlando Magic to a 94-91
victory over a short-handed Milwaukee Bucks squad at Amway Arena.
Afflalo knocked down a career-high eight 3-pointers in 11 attempts and racked
up a personal-best 36 points -- 29 of which came after halftime -- as Orlando
overcame a 19-point second-quarter deficit to halt a three-game skid. The
talented guard finished 11-of-15 from the field while adding eight rebounds
and six assists.
Nikola Vucevic contributed a double-double to the Magic's comeback, recording
17 points and 11 rebounds.
Milwaukee, which dressed only eight healthy players due to injuries, was
outscored by a 71-55 margin after the first quarter en route to a third
consecutive defeat and 15th straight to the Magic in Orlando.
O.J. Mayo tallied 25 points and Caron Butler had 20 for the Bucks. Khris
Middleton set a career high with 19 points while pulling down eight rebounds
in the loss.
