Well, it was really only a matter of time before a headline like this one would see the light of day. During the Orlando Magic’s 108-82 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, the Amway Center saw its lowest-attended Magic game since opening on October 1, 2010.
The Magic did not lead one time during the game, and were down 60-35 at halftime, scoring less than 20 points during each of the first two quarters. The team dropped to 16-44 on the season, and is in good position to set the record for fewest wins in a season, which is 18, set by the inaugural team in 1989-90.
The announced crowd of 16,020 was officially the lowest for any Magic game at the Amway Center.
The Magic will go on a two-game road trip to New Orleans and Miami before coming back home for a three-game stand which will see Dwight Howard return to town for the first time since being traded to the Lakers. That game almost certainly will compete for the most-attended game of the season.
