Paolo Banchero drops 32 points as Magic triumph over Pelicans 117-108

In a thrilling game, Paolo Banchero led the Orlando Magic to a 117-108 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans with an impressive 32-point performance. Franz Wagner contributed 24 points and Moritz Wagner added 18 points for the Magic. This win marks their third straight victory, putting them half a game ahead of the New York Knicks for fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

Meanwhile, CJ McCollum recorded 36 points and 10 rebounds for the Pelicans, who have lost three of their last four games and dropped from fourth to sixth place in the Western Conference. During the game, Zion Williamson had a scary moment when Gary Harris unintentionally tripped him, causing Williamson to briefly leave the game.

They shot an impressive 51.3% from the field as they held a commanding 20-point lead in the fourth quarter after Moritz Wagner’s free throws made it 104-84.
