Magic Lose to Clippers 94-106

From Sportsline.com:

The Magic are having a hard time finding anyone who can deliver during their three-game losing streak, especially during prolonged stretches of the game when their offense falls out of rhythm.

Steve Francis led Orlando with 21 points, but was only 5-of-13 from the field. Dwight Howard had 15 points and 15 rebounds, but he missed a dunk on a three-on-none fast break in the second quarter.

The missed dunk bounded out to nearly halfcourt and the Clippers converted it into an easy dunk at their end. It was one of three open dunks the Magic missed on the night.

"That whole play upset me," Magic coach Brian Hill said. "When you're three-on-none and don't score, that's inexcusable."

Added Francis: "It looked like we didn't have a lot of energy out there. We've got to find a way to get some drives where we play good consistently and not just for four or five games and then tanking it for three or four games."
