The Orlando Magic have qualified for the playoffs for the first time in seven seasons.

Steve Clifford inherited a Magic team that went 25-57 last season and 157-335 over the previous six seasons.

Clifford talked about how excited the Magic were to clinch their playoff spot.

“Anybody that doesn’t think there’s purity in the NBA should have seen the scene in the locker room,” Clifford said.

“A phenomenal locker room scene. The guys were ecstatic, deserving, and it’s fun to see. I feel like we’ve done it the right way. We’ve played our best here this last 30, 31 games. We’ve made good progress all year.”
