23 points from Franz Wagner were not enough for the Orlando Magic to win against the Charlotte Hornets in the NBA.
At 105:112, the ball losses were particularly painful and numerous for the hosts. "If you give the ball 22 times and collect 21 points because of it, then that says it all. We have to stop that," said Wagner after his team's tenth defeat of the season. "They live from such simple mistakes, that's how you lose these games." The Hornets had previously lost eight games in a row. LaMelo Ball was only making his second appearance from injury and had 17 points.
Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics are still in good form. Last season's finalist recorded the seventh win in a row in a 126:122 against the Oklahoma City Thunder. At one point, the Celtics were 15 points behind, but came back in time with a strong final quarter.
