Moritz Wagner’s Physical Effort Not Enough for Orlando Magic in Playoff Game

Basketball world champion Moritz Wagner’s full physical effort was not enough for the Orlando Magic to win in the second playoff game either.

In the 86:96 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Franz Wagner’s older brother even threw himself into a fan in the front row while fighting for the ball with five minutes left, allowing his team to score a basket. The older man appeared to have injured his upper arm in the scene. Wagner asked about his health during a break.

Despite the 12-0 run, it was no longer enough for the Magic to stage a comeback. Orlando now goes into the first home playoff game of the Wagner brothers’ NBA careers with a 0-2 deficit.

Franz Wagner recorded 18 points. His brother Moritz had 12 points, but in the end he had too many fouls and was not allowed to finish the game.
