1990–91 Orlando Magic season

The 1990–91 NBA season was the Magic's 2nd season in the National Basketball Association.[1] After playing in the Central Division in the Eastern Conference, the Magic would move into the Western Conference and settle into the Midwest Division. The Magic continued to struggle in their second season losing their first six games. After a 3-game winning streak, they lost 16 of their next 18 games, which included seven and eight-game losing streaks. However, February would be the best month for the Magic as they won 8 out of 11 games, finishing fourth in the Midwest Division with a 31–51 record.
