Orlando Magic Fall to Memphis Grizzlies in Summer League Action

The Orlando Magic were on the receiving end of their first loss of Summer League action as they were beaten 80-73 by the Memphis Grizzlies.

Dewayne Dedmon led the team in scoring with 13 points but the Magic were physically outmatched by the Grizzlies, especially on the boards, as Memphis out-rebounded the Magic 34-24 and 13-5 on offensive boards.

Dedmon had seven of the Magic’s 24 boards. He also went 7-for-10 from the line.

Victor Oladipo, who sat out the Magic’s last game, was active today and had 11 points and seven boards.

After a breakout performance last time out, Elfrid Payton was quieter today as he had just six points in a touch under 19 minutes.

He did have this nice steal and dunk though.

Aaron Gordon struggled as he went 0-for-3 from the field but hit all of his free throws for a total of four points. Oddly, he never had a rebound.

Cameron Jones, who averaged 19.4 PPG with the Santa Cruz Warriors of the D-League in 49 games last season, had 10 points for the Magic,

The Magic, who are now 2-1 after winning their opening two games against the Philadelphia 76ers and the Houston Rockets, next play on Thursday at 5 p.m. against the Boston Celtics.
