The Orlando Magic returned home from their nine-day road trip that ended 3-2 after Sunday night's 98-90 win over the Phoenix Suns.
Not only did the Magic get impressive wins over the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors, but they also booted team morale over the course of the trip.
"We are a young team that is learning through experience, from the rookies to the coaches," power forward Glen Davis said.
"'Together.' It's what we say every day in the huddle. We're starting to live it every single day now, and being on the road brings it together even more, because now you're in a building with 20,000 other people, and they're against you. So that mentality has to spread, not only away, but at home."
"We can take a lot of positives out of this whole road trip," point guard Jameer Nelson added. "We gave ourselves a chance to win in every game, and we won three out of the five. The two we lost, we had our opportunities to win."
