Never-Ending NBA Preview: Love’s too new crew

The NBA season is here. With that in mind, it is time to flip through the book on the 2012-13 season and to take a look at what the season might have in store — especially when it comes to the Magic. Be sure to look out for more of these team capsules and to […]


Closing time with Jameer Nelson in Charlotte

The Charlotte Bobcats changed their uniforms, colors and font entering this year. I am sure part of it was to distance themselves from the previous season when the team won only seven games and establish a new identity. It did not matter much to Jameer Nelson, a player that likely haunts Bobcats fans' dreams. It […]

Magic rebound in win over Warriors

Orlando needed to get back to its roots a bit after a disappointing effort against Atlanta. The starters were not leaving a good foundation for the bench to come in, digging a hole that took all the energy the team needed to climb out of. Instead of focusing that energy on sustaining leads and withstanding […]

No quick changes to starting lineup

Jacque Vaughn is notoriously tight-lipped about his starting lineup. When asked whether Maurice Harkless would make his second start a few weeks ago, Vaughn reacted with shock and surprise. Joking that he had not turned his lineup in. The answer was pretty obvious and Harkless has started since. Now that the Magic continue to struggle […]

Orlando Magic Daily Podcast Episode 5

The Orlando Magic Daily podcast is back this week as we recap the Orlando Magic's 3-2 road trip including a discussion of what win was better — Golden State or Phoenix — and what the 3-2 road trip means for the Magic and the development of this team. The surprises may be just beginning: Listen […]


Magic dig deep to close trip strong

The Magic's start could not have been worse. To both halves for that matter. The starting lineup struggled to get the offense going off the bat. Six first-quarter turnovers and seven third-quarter turnovers gave Phoenix the energy and the chances to take control fo the game. It seemed like tired legs at the end of […]

Thomas blows up the grind

The Magic suspected scoring would be a problem entering the season. There was no great one-on-one player that demanded the defense's attention at all points of the game. That made it clear Orlando would have to manufacture points with strong half-court execution and transition baskets. Defense would not hurt. And even when Orlando was not […]

The ups and downs of Josh McRoberts

When the Magic announced their opening day roster, the player probably no one knew what to expect anything from was Josh McRoberts. McRoberts had made a small name for himself in his days playing for the Pacers for his hustle and energy off the bench. But how he fit in with the new-look Magic was […]


Magic get ugly

The Magic would not go away. Shots were not falling. Orlando was fumbling the ball around and turning the ball over, igniting Utah fast breaks in the first half. A superstar player went off for his season-best game. The defense frustrated things with pressure. The ball was bouncing the other team's way. By all rights, […]
