"Because Magic hadn't played in so long and I wanted to have him feel comfortable in a full-court game, so we scrimmaged for over an hour the day before," Nelson said. "It was a good scrimmage. Not screwing around. Magic just put his presence on the scrimmage and everybody was real comfortable after that. Magic, I think, was more comfortable that he could run up and down and play and everything was going to be good. His legs were good. The other players felt good, that, hey, the guy still could play. I think that was an important thing we did the day before and I think it kind of set up the game."
