Magic walk away from season disappointed, yet encouraged

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) In a season of high expectations, the Orlando Magic made some gains but ultimately they were not enough for anyone in the organization to be satisfied.

A team stocked with young talent achieved double-digit improvement in overall wins and victories at home, finishing 35-47 overall and 23-19 at the Amway Center. The gains, however, did not produce a spot in the postseason, which was the most coveted prize for a franchise that has now missed the playoffs four straight years.

"We didn't make the type of progress we had hoped to make this season," Magic general manager Rob Hennigan said Thursday after players went through exit interviews. "At the beginning of the year we had stated goal of making the playoffs and clearly we came up short on end."
