1) The Magic might be regretting not trading Dwight Howard for Andrew Bynum right about now, George Diaz of the Orlando Sentinel writes.

2) Jameer Nelson went down with an injury early as the Nuggets blew out the Magic last night.

3) Evan Dunlap of Orlando Pinstriped Post reviews every defensive possession for Daniel Orton in an admittedly awful game for him Saturday against Utah. Orton, to his credit, seems to be taking it as a learning experience.

4) The Indiana Pacers are your unexpected three seed, wrapping up the spot with New York’s win over Atlanta on Sunday afternoon.

5) Ben Gordon came alive in the fourth quarter Sunday night as the Pistons squeaked by the Raptors.
