Sunday’s Magic Word

John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com: “Much of Charlotte’s gameplan in this series was to trap the 6-foot [Jameer] Nelson and force him into making mistakes. But Nelson has shredded those double teams and he’s repeatedly torched the Bobcats off the pick-and-roll. His seven-for-seven, 19-point first quarter was one for the ages in [Orlando] Magic history.

Second Look: Orlando Magic 90, Charlotte Bobcats 86

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Are the [Orlando] Magic conducting some bizarre experiment? It looks as if they’re now trying to invent new and different ways to win that don’t include four-time all-time star Dwight Howard and barely include eight-time all-star Vince Carter. Take Saturday’s game of charades. The Magic won despite committing 21 turnovers for …

Friday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Stern warned coaches and players about publicly questioning his game officials only hours after fining Magic coach Stan Van Gundy and small forward Matt Barnes $35,000 apiece for comments they made in Howard’s defense after Game 2 against the Charlotte Bobcats Wednesday night. And Stern said a $35,000 fine will seem like pocket change …
