Fansided: Repeat it over and over: The Orlando Magic are a Playoff team
It was the second game of the season and the familiar sinking feeling was settling in.
The game before, the Orlando Magic put together an impressive victory over the Miami Heat in their home opener, riding the brilliant and surprising play of Mohamed Bamba in the fourth quarter with Aaron Gordon leading the charge to get that first win. It was a twinkle in the eye of the season, but there was a reason to believe things were different.
The Charlotte Hornets provided a dose of reality a few nights later.

Orlando Pinstriped Post: Orlando vs. Charlotte preview: Can the Magic avoid getting stung by the Hornets once again?
What else can be said, it's been a great time to be a Magic fan.
The Orlando Magic are one of the hottest teams in the NBA, currently riding a four-game winning streak into play Thursday night. This is Orlando's first winning-streak of four or more games since November 25th-December 23rd of 2015.
The Magic have won six of their last seven games, the latter three wins coming on the road. Tuesday night's win in New Orleans resulted in a three-game sweep on the road trip, the first successful three-game road sweep for Orlando since '12.
Orlando Pinstriped Post: Magic 127, Hornets 89: The Orlando Magic are simply unstoppable right now
Sorry, Hornets. This Magic team is a little different than the one you had defeated 13 straight times.
Earlier in the season, Charlotte dominated Orlando twice, with victories of 32 and 25 points, while extending a 13-game winning streak over the Magic that dated back to 2015. Things have since changed.
The Magic took 13 games of frustration out on the Hornets in one night by crushing them, 127-89, on Thursday for their largest margin of victory over Charlotte in franchise history. The win was the fifth straight for Orlando, and seventh in eight games, for their first five-game winning streak since 2015.
Official Site of the Magic: Postgame Report: Magic 127, Hornets 89
ORLANDO - A significant streak - one way or another - was bound to fall on Thursday, and the Orlando Magic are plenty happy that their season-best winning spree is still alive and the futility against the Charlotte Hornets has finally ended.
Orlando pushed its feel-good, season-saving winning streak to five games on Thursday night and in the process took out three-plus years of frustration on the rival Hornets.
The Magic tied a season high with 71 first-half points, built a commanding lead as large as 40 points and dominated Charlotte to the tune of a 127-89 rout to end a 13-game skid against the Hornets.
