Cavs slow down Magic

Kim Klement/USA TODAY The Magic seemed off to the races running toward the north side of the Amway Center in the first quarter and off to a semi-comfortable win. There were 17 fast break points, Victor Oladipo banking in 3-pointers, the ball moving around the perimeter, the defense rotating and attacking. Orlando had it all […]

Rebounds and relief in Charlotte

Jeremy Brevard/USA TODAY The Magic seemed despondent as losses continue to pile up. Frustration was boiling over as shots refused to go down and teams picked them apart with a 3-point barrage that was so uncharacteristic. Nikola Vucevic was out with a sprained ankle and his absence was felt with every rebound that was missed […]

Big Magic questions with Rufus on Fire

Douglas Jones/USA TODAY The Magic will end the first leg of this bifurcated road trip Wednesday against the Bobcats. Orlando then returns home to face the Cavaliers before hitting the road for two quick games before a long, much-needed homestand. The road trip so far has exposed some of the inadequacies of this Magic roster […]

Magic could make return trips to Jacksonville

Phil Sears/USA TODAY The Magic made their second trip to Jacksonville for a preseason game in the last decade when they opened up their preseason against the New Orleans Pelicans. Despite it being the preseason, the game proved to be an exciting one as Victor Oladipo racked up an impressive steals total and the game […]

Magic find the formula too late again

Nelson Chenault/USA TODAY A feverish comeback and a new mentality for the Magic came to end exactly how they dug that hole for themselves. Here was Glen Davis on a straight, stand-still post up against Memphis' strong interior defense trying to be the hero with the Magic down four points and a chance to really […]

Glen’s return has had mixed results with defense

Daniel Shirley/USA TODAY The Magic were lacking something next to Nikola Vucevic. Jason Maxiell provided some grit on defense, but little in the way of offense. Andrew Nicholson has the offense and improved defensive play, but still struggles as the full-time guy as he has gone in and out of the rotation so far in […]

Iron unkind for Magic in Houston

Troy Taormina/USA TODAY The Magic raced out to a 9-2 lead over the Rockets and looked like they had figured some things out offensively after a horrid second-half performance Friday night in New York. Things are not that easy. Not ever that easy. Not with Dwight Howard patrolling the middle — and another shot blocker […]

Magic lifeless in New York

The Magic trailed the Knicks by five points at the end of the first half despite giving up 10 3-pointers, a 10-point first-quarter lead and he confidence to keep shooting. New York is a team built on its offense and needed that little bit (including Thursday night's 30-point win at Brooklyn) to become the team […]
