Classic Orlando Magic games will begin airing on FOX Sports Florida starting Saturday. Here are 10 more games to catch if you can find them.

Wednesday was supposed to be the end of the regular season and so became the end of FOX Sports Florida’s replays of the best Orlando Magic games from the season.

With no schedule to keep, it would seem like we are preparing to enter a basketball desert until the league is able to get itself started again.

That does not mean there are not still-starved basketball fans hoping to see their teams play in any form or fashion.

The NBA’s official channels have been playing classic games on NBATV — no Magic games are on the schedule for the next week or so — and they have had Facebook Live rewatches of classic games — including Tracy McGrady‘s 62-point performance against the Washington Wizards in 2004.

As you can see, there are still plenty of places to watch basketball.

FOX Sports Florida is not going to let that Magic light dim either. Starting Saturday at 8 p.m. and then every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday (a doubleheader on Saturday starting next week!) for the time being, the network will air classic games from the Magic’s past.

Saturday will see a re-broadcast of the Orlando Magic’s inaugural preseason game, a surprising win over the defending champion Detroit Pistons. You can see the full schedule and description of the games coming up on our site here.

It should be exciting to see the original team and some of the iconic wins that endeared that team to the city, the oncoming freight train that was Shaquille O’Neal and all four victories from the Orlando Magic’s landmark playoff series win over Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls.

For now, the schedule stops with that 1995 second-round series. Assumedly, the network is scheduling things out in anticipation of the season returning and heading back to live game action.

But even until then, it would be nearly impossible to get every classic Magic game from the first six seasons. And indeed, FOX Sports Florida’s Magic Classics have missed some classics and games worth revisiting.

And with the NBA often not forcing YouTube to take video of their games down, many of these games can still be found intact online.

Here are 10 more games from the 1990-95 seasons to dive into if you want to brush up on your Magic history — and dive into our Orlando Magic Video Vault while you are at it.
