[ORLANDO] — The Orlando Magic played host to the Detroit Pistons last night but didn't exactly treat their visitors with any semblence of dignity or respect. Not only did the Magic manhandle their beleagured opponents, they embarassed them to the tune of 115-87. The win bumps Orlando's record up to 27-46 on the season, while the loss drags Detroit's down to 34-39. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Magic. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Elfrid Payton's 14 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists, 0 blocks and 0 steals in 29 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Ask anybody, however - Payton included - and the most important part is that the Magic walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Joining Payton in the winning effort was Nikola Vucevic. Had it not been for Vucevic rounding out the Magic's attack with 16 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Magic walking away victorious was Orlando's ability to limit Detroit's offensive output. By holding the Pistons to less than they usually produce the Magic made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Magic will be a date with the while the visiting Pistons will look to bounce back in a matchup with the .
