Seth Curry top-scored for the hosts with 20 points to his name and Joel Embiid chipped in with a double-double.

This was Orlando Magic’s 50th defeat of the season, and as a result became the fourth franchise to reach the ill-fated landmark this campaign.

Justise Winslow scored 25 points for the hosts. On the other hand, top scorer Louis Kings’ 27-point effort ended in a losing cause.

Warriors 125-122 Pelicans

The absence of Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram continued to hurt New Orleans as they slid to their third defeat in a row.

Playing without Stephen Curry, the Warriors were led by the performances of Jordan Poole and Mychal Mulder who scored a combined 66-points for their fifth win in a row.
