Video Vault:



1) The Rockets' win over the Magic was a return to the way things were supposed to be for the Rockets — a dominant win over an inferior opponent — Rob Dover of writes. The Magic's poor shooting on easy and open jumpers did not help and it made a late run come too late. Dwight Howard dominated with his first 20/20 of the year, although that hype was much lowered this time around.

2) Grizzlies guard Quincy Pondexter will miss the rest of the season because of a stress fracture in his right foot, Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial Appeal writes.

3) The Grizzlies will try to correct some home woes with the struggling Magic coming to town.

4) The Magic's preseason game in Jacksonville against the Pelicans was a smashing success and brought the organizers a small profit, David Chapman of the Jacksonville Financial News and Daily Record writes.

5) The Magic will honor Dennis Scott at Friday's game against the Cavaliers. GET. YOUR. TICKETS. NOW.
