Jeff Griffith/USA TODAY Trying to figure out where the Magic and the Warriors are on the path to a championship would take no longer than listening to the two teams after the game, in case you did not catch the actual game. Mark Jackson was on one side of Amway Center talking about how pleased […]
The obsession for Magic fans of late involves the idea of Arron Afflalo making the All-Star team. Nobody saw the Magic having an All Star, let alone anyone threatening to make the All-Star Game, so soon after Dwight Howard's tumultuous departure. The winning might come a little bit later, but certainly some individual award shows […]
David Manning/USA TODAY It was a seminal moment in the game for the Magic. The Hawks had finally eaten away at a double-digit lead and the Magic's comfortably uncomfortable lead thanks to Dennis Schroeder's run of four straight points, including an and-one runner and a trip to the foul line. The Magic players on the […]

The NBA season is here. It has been here for a while. With that in mind, it is time to flip through the book on the 2013-14 season and to take a look at what the season has had in store — especially when it comes to the Magic. Be sure to look out for […]
Soobum Im/USA TODAY Characterizing the Magic as a young team automatically seems to put the group in the category of teams who rely on transition points. Who could blame them for that considering the Magic are 24th in the league in offensive rating at 99.2 points per 100 possessions. For much of the season, particularly […]
Kim Klement/USA TODAY The Magic offense needed a major pick-me-up after down performances in the first half against the Knicks, the second half against the Kings and the entire game against the Jazz. The homestand decidedly had not gone the way the Magic expected thanks to the unkind irons at Amway Center. Let Friday night […]

Voting for the greatest moment in Magic history is still ongoing at OrlandoMagic.com until the end of January. I actaully am planning on doing a greatest moments in team history podcast with fellow Magic history nerd Adam Papageorgiou before the New Year. So look forward to that. This post is about my vote for the […]
Brian Spurlock/USA TODAY The 2013 Draft Class was heralded (that word seems too positive) as a weak draft long before the draft took place. The teams at the top of the Lottery knew they would get a decent player, but not a franchise changer. It would be no surprise if those teams ended up back […]
The coming new year means an unwelcome reality for several Magic players. The trade market and rumor mill will certainly pick up with the February trade deadline coming up quickly. And the Magic continue to plummet down the standings sitting now at a disappointing and frustrating 8-20, someone is going to come calling for the […]
Rob Foldy/USA TODAY There was nothing anyone needed to say at halftime for the Magic that was not painfully obvious. New York was running roughshod over Orlando's defense, finding easy shots and open 3-pointers seemingly at will and turning every mistake into a made basket. The Magic could not buy a bucket and had an […]

Douglas Jones/USA TODAY It is hard to look at the standings and not get that competitive urge. The realities for the Magic are they have lost 10 of the last 12 games and have lost four straight games at home including the first two of this six-game homestand. Yet, the Magic remain three games out […]
Kim Klement/USA TODAY The Magic were ready to try to grind out a game and secure a shootout of a victory against a similarly young team from the Western Conference. They just needed the dang ball to go into the basket. And they needed to get out of their own way. Orlando could do neither […]
