Warriors vs. Magic score: Golden State falls 99-85

The Warriors struggled to shoot the ball all night long, and it led to their eighth loss of the year.


The Golden State Warriors had been one of the league's hottest teams entering Friday night. Despite taking on a Magic team that entered with a 8-13 record, the Warriors were able to get very little going on the road as they fell 99-85.

It was essentially a two-man show for Golden State. Stephen Curry led the way with 25 points, while forward David Lee chipped in with 24. Only one other player, Jarrett Jack, reached double-figures in scoring, and the team shot just 37 percent from the floor. They were also out-rebounded by the Magic, 53-49, and got to the free throw line just 11 times.

Orlando turned in one of their best performances of the season. Six players had upwards of 10 points, including J.J. Redick off the bench, who led the team with 16. The Magic hit nearly 48 percent of their field goal attempts, including nine of their 21 shots from behind the arc.

The Warriors will look to get back on track against the first-place Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night. Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.
