[ORLANDO] — The Orlando Magic played host to the Detroit Pistons last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 113 to 109 Magic victory. The win bumps Orlando's record up to 29-53 on the season, while the loss drags Detroit's down to 37-45. 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.

On this night it was Aaron Gordon leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 32 points, 12 rebounds, 0 assists, 2 blocks and 1 steals in 35 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Ask anybody, however - Gordon 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 Gordon in the winning effort was Elfrid Payton. Had it not been for Payton rounding out the Magic's attack with 21 points, 5 rebounds and 13 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 .
