The Lakeland Magic have won two of three NBA G League games.

The Magic lost Monday to the Westchester Knicks, 114-105, in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Guard TJ Haws had 21 points, eight rebounds and two assists, while center Jeremiah Tilmon had 21 points on 9-of-9 shooting and four assists. Both were players of the match.

A late-game precision shot put the Magic ahead for good and on their way to a 107-97 victory over the Greensboro Swarm on Sunday at the RP Funding Center.

Guard Jeff Dowtin finished with 20 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. Forward Aleem Ford, who was instrumental in that late-game push, had 19 points, including five 3s and six rebounds. Forward Janis Timma, another key 3-point shooter in the final stretch, posted a career-best 17 points and six rebounds in his third game with the Magic.

Defensively, the Magic forced Greensboro to less than 40% shooting.

The momentum with the Orlando Magic translated into a stellar game with the Lakeland Magic and a 134-115 dominance over the Wisconsin Herd on Feb. 3 at the RP Funding Center.

Forwards Admiral Schofield and Ignas Brazdeikis – players on two-way contracts – who were both on the traveling roster in the Orlando Magic’s one-point win at Indiana helped score a points record for the season. The two traveled on a flight back to Florida the next day, and Schofield ended up having 27 points, 13 rebounds and five assists, while Brazdeikis recorded 13 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

And after

The Magic (4-11) won’t play in the state again until Feb. 24 to face Long Island on the road. Lakeland traveled to Egypt on Tuesday to represent the United States and the NBA G League in the FIBA ​​Intercontinental Cup. The home G League side will face league champions from around the world, but will face Basketball Champions League Americas winners Flamengo first.
