In a tightly contested match, the Golden State Warriors, despite facing significant challenges, secured a 101-93 victory over the Orlando Magic during Wednesday’s NBA action. Andrew Wiggins and Stephen Curry stepped up in crucial moments to lead their team to victory.

Curry, who had a rare off-shooting night, clinched the game for the Warriors with a decisive hook shot and a 3-pointer in the final minutes.

“We found a way to fight it to the end and get a win,” Curry said. “It did start with the defensive effort of being detail-focused, talking, rebounding, and then we were locked in for a good stretch of the game.”

The Warriors’ defensive prowess was on full display as they held the Magic to just 93 points, mirroring their defensive achievement against Miami the previous night. This and a notable rebounding advantage compensated for their shooting struggles.

Magic coach Jamahl Mosley pointed out the missed opportunities at the free-throw line and the rim as significant factors in the game’s outcome.

“Shots were not falling, free throws were not falling,” Magic coach Jamahl Mosley said. “We were getting open and good looks. We missed some easy ones at the rim.”

Paolo Banchero reflected on the game’s flow, attributing the loss to a series of unfortunate misses.

“Sometimes it just goes down like that: You come out and miss a couple in a row, and then it just trickles down,” said Banchero, who shot 5 for 17. We just had some tough, tough misses.”
