(AP) -- After pinning their latest loss on a listless start, the Orlando Magic acknowledged they must come out with more energy.
Despite their struggles, the Magic seemingly shouldn't have much trouble starting fast Sunday night against a Philadelphia 76ers team that routinely lets teams impose their will in the opening minutes.
Orlando (10-19) was never able to recover from a miserable first quarter Friday against Utah and ended up losing 101-94, its fifth defeat in six games. The Jazz shot 70.0 percent in the opening quarter to the Magic's 37.5 and took a 15-point lead less than two minutes into the second period. Utah bullied Orlando early, scoring 14 of its 29 first-quarter points in the paint.
