The New York Knicks and Orlando Magic had the worst second quarter ever

The New York Knicks and Orlando Magic are two bottom five NBA teams and it showed Saturday evening.

During the contest, the two squads had a terrible second quarter, combining for the fewest points in NBA history.

From AP:

"The teams combined for 15 points in the second quarter Saturday night. The previous record was 18, accomplished three times. It was done most recently by Utah and Detroit on March 13, 2005.

The Knicks scored eight points, shooting 3 for 20 from the field with a pair of turnovers. The Magic had seven points and were 3 for 19 from the field, with seven turnovers. Orlando went the better part of 10 minutes in the second quarter with just one field goal and a free throw before getting two late baskets by Victor Oladipo."

In the end, the Knicks held off the Magic with a last-second shot from Tim Hardaway Jr., which puts New York in danger of not having the worst record in the NBA. Minnesota has a chance to pass the Knicks with a loss Monday to the New Orleans Pelicans.
