Tuesday’s Mini-Magic Word

  • Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports: “‘Melo waiting by the bus brought a reminder of when former Nuggets coach George McCloud punched then-Magic star Ron Mercer after a game in 2000. Mercer’s head hit a steel beam after the punch.”
  • With a 125-119 overtime loss to the Portland Trail Blazers in last night’s game, the Orlando Magic are now on a season-high nine-game losing streak.
  • John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com on Jameer Nelson’s record-setting night, in which he moved by Scott Skiles into first place for most career assists in Magic franchise history: “Nelson entered Monday’s game needing one assist to tie Scott Skiles, and he did that in the opening minutes of the game. Then, with 4:13 left in the first quarter, Nelson put on a clinic in one play on how to set up a defense for a basket and his record-setting assist.”
  • Denton also provides an injury update on E’Twaun Moore (sprained left elbow), Glen Davis (sprained left shoulder), and Gustavo Ayon (right thigh contusion).
