The Philadelphia 76ers entered Monday night's contest against the Orlando Magic playing some excellent basketball. The Sixers had won seven games in a row and they were coming off an impressive win over the Denver Nuggets where they trailed by 15 on two separate occasions.
On Monday, they led the Magic by 21 and it looked like they were going to cruise to an easy win.
However, Orlando woke up and they put on an impressive comeback led by rookie Paolo Banchero on their way to a 119-109 win. Banchero had 29 points with 14 of those points coming in a dominant third quarter and 10 rebounds in order to lead the Magic to an impressive win.
Along with Banchero's efforts, Markelle Fultz made his Philly return and had 12 points, 10 assists, and four steals.
Joel Embiid led the Sixers with 30 points, 11 rebounds, and five assists, James Harden and Tobias Harris had 17 points each, and Matisse Thybulle had 10 points off the bench.
