Mo Bamba Hits Most Threes in a Game By a Center in Franchise History

Despite the 123-110 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, Mo Bamba notched a career-high 32 points while knocking down seven threes, setting the record for most threes made in a game by a Magic center in franchise history.

Bamba came out the gates scorching hot, exploding in the first half for 28 of his 32 points while simultaneously hitting a career-high seven threes in just 18 minutes played. The former 6th overall pick in the 2018 draft grabbed four rebounds and swatted away three shots while shooting 12-for-15 from the field in the game.

Bamba, whose previous career-high was 22, shot 7-for-8 from deep before fouling out of the game midway through the fourth quarter.

“I credit it all to my teammates. They were able to find me in different situations – whether it was pindowns, or trail threes, just different types of action. They really just embraced it. They embraced me. Without them, I don’t think I would have a career-high,” Bamba said postgame.

The Magic and Bamba will be back home in Orlando Friday night to face the Los Angeles Lakers.
