The Magic failed to lift themselves off the basement of the Southeast Division in each of Hennigan's five seasons and finished third from bottom of the Eastern Conference in the season which drew to a close on Wednesday with a 29-53 record.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had 20 points and Ish Smith 20 points and 10 assists, along with 17 points from Reggie Bullock. In fact, the Magic were never in this game after the first quarter where they were outscored by 34-13 so it'll be interesting to see how they come out in the season finale given they have nothing to play for but pride. However, prior to closing out their season on a high note, the Magic notably fell to the Chicago Bulls by the score of 122-75 on Monday evening.
In game in which both teams played many of their reserves major minutes, the Pistons outscored Orlando in the second, third and fourth quarters but their 21-point first-quarter deficit proved hard to overcome.
The Magic wrap up another disappointing season at home against the Pistons.
But the Magic starting group - led by Aaron Gordon's 32 points and 12 rebounds - returned in the fourth to hand Detroit its 28th road loss of the season.
Detroit's bench combined for 58 points, with Boban Marjanovic adding 14 and 11 rebounds and Ellenson scoring 12.
Marjanovic is now averaging a double-double at 16.5 points on 63 percent from the floor, while inhaling 10 rebounds per game.
With the franchise's offseason barely underway, the Magic have reportedly elected to fire general manager Rob Hennigan.
In the first quarter, their effort and energy were in question, as they hit just 22 percent of their field goals, while they allowed the Magic to hit 6-of-9 from 3-point range and cruise to a 38-17 lead at the end of the period.
