Paolo Banchero Aids Orlando Magic To Thrilling Win Against Utah Jazz


Paolo Banchero promised after the game the other night against the Los Angeles Clippers that he would not allow a few poor starts to the season to get to him or worry him.

Of course, the 6-foot-10, 250-pound star was frustrated that his shots weren’t falling, just like any other player of his caliber. However, he was aware that things would eventually start to click once more.

He demonstrated on Thursday night in Salt Lake City that perseverance, composure, and the correct mindset are keys to success.

To cap off a four-game West Coast tour, the Orlando Magic upset the Utah Jazz 115-113 in a thrilling game played at the Delta Center. Banchero scored a season-high 30 points, including the game-winning driving layup with 14.1 seconds remaining.

With less than two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, the Magic led by seven points, but the Jazz countered with eight consecutive points to tie the game in a thrilling contest that saw multiple wild momentum swings. With 20.1 seconds left, Lauri Markkanen, a first-time NBA All-Star who finished with 22 points, gave Utah the lead with a 3-pointer.

Wendell Carter Jr. rebounded Talen Horton-Tucker’s missed triple after Banchero’s clutch bucket. Carter injured his hand on the play despite being fouled. Unable to attempt the free throws, the Jazz instead chose youngster Anthony Black, who played a significant amount of minutes after Gary Harris had to leave the game early due to a sore groin and Markelle Fultz was sidelined due to swelling in his left knee, to attempt the foul shots.

Black split the two, finishing with nine points, three rebounds, one assist, and two steals while making all four of his field goals. On the last play, Franz Wagner intercepted Kelly Olynyk’s in-bounds pass.

Following the game, Magic head coach Jamahl Mosley spoke with Fultz, Harris, and Carter about their injuries; however, further testing was required at that time to provide a precise diagnosis for each player. It was revealed shortly afterward that Carter had broken his left hand’s third metacarpal. When the squad gets back to Orlando, the treatment plan will be decided.

The Magic’s ability to make 27 of 36 free throws was crucial to their offensive approach. Banchero tied his career high with 15 foul throws, making 11 of them, previous season. He became the fourth rookie this century to average at least seven free throw attempts.

Cole Anthony scored 18, Carter had 14 points before to the last-second injury, and Franz Wagner added 21 points for the victorious team.

Utah held a 10-point lead in the first half, but Orlando had a lead as large as 14.

At 7 p.m. on Saturday, the Magic will play the Los Angeles Lakers again at home. In Los Angeles, the Lakers defeated the Magic 106-103 on Monday night.
