But the Magic failed to keep momentum going, losing 120-115 in overtime to the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night.Orlando sizzled at the start, shooting 67.5 percent from the field in the first half, and then had to overcome an 11-point fourth-quarter deficit to get to overtime. Center Nikola Vucevic missed key late shots in regulation and overtime."Listen, he's not going to make every shot," coach Steve Clifford said. "He's made so many, so many big shots and he's not going to make every one all year." Vucevic leads the Magic in scoring (20.2 points per game) and rebounding (11.9).On Wednesday, Orlando couldn't stop the NBA's leading rebounder, Andre Drummond, who had 11 offensive and 11 defensive rebounds.

He has six 30-point games this season."There's no fear," Atkinson said on "He believes in himself. He's got tremendous, tremendous confidence. He's playing really well right now."
