Magic New Yorkers back home with each other

Brad Penner/USA TODAY The Magic got a little bit of homecooking these past few days. E'Twaun Moore went back "home" to West Lafayette, Ind., to be honored at a Purdue basketball game. And four Magic players — Maurice Harkless, Kyle O'Quinn, Doron Lamb and Tobias Harris — are back home for tonight's game with the […]


Nelson, Vucevic close to returning after Magic off day

The Magic clearly missed both Nikola Vucevic and Jameer Nelson in the double overtime loss to the 76ers. Philadelphia had 20 offensive rebounds that turned into 31 second chance points and so obviously missing a guy like Vucevic, who averages 10.9 rebounds per game and helps set the defense just by his size alone. Nelson's […]


Figuring out life without Jameer Nelson

David Manning/USA TODAY One week ago, Jameer Nelson removed himself from the game against the 76ers, hopping off the court after a quick dish to Nikola Vucevic. There was nothing apparent on the play. Nelson came around the corner, fed a bounce pass to Nikola Vucevic for a dunk and then signaled to the bench […]


Jameer Nelson now a teacher

Kim Klement/USA TODAY Jameer Nelson probably does not feel like a proud father after Victor Oladipo turned in his first career triple double Tuesday against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Magic locker room is still a very professional environment. Guys do their job. Oladipo's emergence on the floor though is something that Oladipo, at least, can […]


Sixers outlast Magic in double overtime

Howard Smith/USA TODAY Screwy things can happen in double overtime. The legs go quickly, shots fall short and defense becomes that much tougher trying to track down cutters and rebounding assignments. Heroes can emerge. Records can get shattered. Victor Oladipo and Michael Carter-Williams recorded their first career triple doubles, matching each other point for point […]

Marcin Gortat: Trade was great for me, not for Magic

Jennifer Stewart/USA TODAY December 18, 2010 is a day that should live in infamy in Magic history. That was the Saturday the Magic traded Mickael Pietrus, Vince Carter and Marcin Gortat for Hedo Turkoglu (currently being paid $6 million not to show up at the Magic facilities), Jason Richardson (re-signed to a four-year deal and […]


Magic offense hits a Wall

Brad Mills/USA TODAY The Magic made the first basket of the evening, then gave up the next 15 points. Orlando tied the game by the end of the first quarter, but struggled to consistently find the bottom of the net after that. It was just that kind of night for the young Magic. And when […]

Growing up with Maurice Harkless

Kim Klement/USA TODAY It has been an up-and-down season for Maurice Harkless just barely a month into his second year. Mostly, it has been down. Harkless' averages — 8.1 points and 3.8 rebounds per game — are similar to the numbers from his rookie year. His field goal shooting is down from 46.1 percent to […]


The impact of T-Mac

On opening night, the Magic honored one of the more polarizing figures in Magic history. OK, that is really saying something with the way several Magic players have left the organization in the past 25 years. McGrady though became a victim of circumstances in his four years in Orlando. And, ultimately, seeking to avoid the […]


Magic succumb to stifling Spurs execution

Steve Mitchell/USA TODAY In an 82-game schedule, some nights are going to be frustrating. Some nights are going to be long and the opponent is going to get under your skin. Some nights the other team is simply going to be better than you. You will not have a lot of answers for why things […]

Learning the Spurs way with Project Spurs

Rob Foldy/USA TODAY The Magic are trying to copy the Spurs. There is really no way around that. From Rob Hennigan, a former Spurs intern) to Jacque Vaughn (a former Spurs player and assistant coach), the team wants to find a way to copy the sustained success the Spurs have had from the last decade.
