Thursday’s Magic Word

  • Watch Glen Davis wiggle.
  • The Orlando Magic beat the Indiana Pacers 97-86 in last night’s game. Arron Afflalo speaks afterwards to reporters.
  • Nikola Vucevic’s rebounding prowess continues to get noticed.
  • John Denton of “During his eight seasons in Orlando, Howard simultaneously became the game’s best defensive player and rebounder. Because of that fact, there was somewhat of a sky-is-falling attitude among some Magic fans when the franchise was forced to trade away Howard in August. But Vucevic – one of the pieces that GM Rob Hennigan deftly acquired in the four-team-12 player blockbuster deal – has helped soften the blow for the Magic. Think of him, in some ways at least, as Dwight Lite. If Howard was all thunder and lightning, Vucevic is a steady rain that just keeps coming and never seems to ease up.”
  • Kurt Helin of ProBasketballTalk tells you all you need to know about the Magic’s win against the Pacers yesterday: “On the season, the Pacers allow teams to score 95.6 points per 100 possessions, the best defense in the NBA. The Magic scored 105.2 per 100.”
