"I need to suck it up and do what I need to do," Davis said following Sunday's 116-110 overtime loss to the Boston Celtics. "I let my team down. They played extremely hard. This is on me I think. I don't care what anybody says … if I come to play we'd beat them."
The Magic will look to bounce back when they host the Spurs on Wednesday at 7:00 pm on FS Florida.
