Opportunity gained for Magic in win

This season has been one of opportunity. OK, maybe every game is that to a certain extent. There are opportunities missed and opportunities gained.

Power Rankings Roundup: Magic are not the worst!

It is Monday and that can only mean another batch of Power Rankings. The click-baiting and hate-mongering have truly begun in full force! Last week, the Magic clocked in for many Power Rankers (not the Mighty Morphin’ kind) at No. 29. Only the extremely hapless Sixers were unanimously considered worse than the Magic. This week, […]
