Tuesday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “It’s not a new tradition, but some teams’ fans start games standing on their feet, only sitting after the home team scores. Now I realize Magic fans might risk suffering from corns and bunions by the time the cold-shooting Magic find the basket during this slump. But why not …

Monday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Something ails the Orlando Magic. Is it fatigue created by a brutal schedule? Or is something deeper at work? Whatever the case, the team looks awful right now. The Magic lost for the fourth time in five games Sunday, falling 106-85 on their home floor to the Indiana Pacers. …

Friday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Howard remains the league’s best center by a large margin, but you can make the argument that every aspect of his offensive game except his passing has regressed. His free-throw shooting, now at 46.9 percent, is less accurate this season than it’s ever been, and it prevents him from …

Thursday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “The Magic need Nelson to flip the script tonight. Nelson finished with just five points and had five turnovers in 25 minutes. Bradley only scored six points, but had three steals and set the aggressive tone. Bradley was subbing for injured Rajon Rondo, who is listed as probable for …

Tuesday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “In their first 15 games this season, the Orlando Magic never folded, even in losses. There’s a first time for everything. The Magic unraveled Monday night, and the result was the worst single-game offensive performance in team history. They set franchise single-game lows for points scored and field-goal percentage …

Monday’s Magic Word

John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com: “Before Sunday, it had been months, maybe even years since Glen “Big Baby’’ Davis took his gaudy 2008 NBA championship ring out of the safe. Heck, he even thought he had lost the oversized bauble at one time when he mistakenly left it in a safe that he had given away. …

Friday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Jameer Nelson is struggling largely because of the constant talk that Dwight Howard would love to play with Deron Williams or Chris Paul. That’s the opinion of Orlando Magic General Manager Otis Smith. […] Nelson has started this season poorly, averaging just 8.3 points per game on 39 percent …

Thursday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Stan Van Gundy plopped down into his chair for his postgame press conference and groaned. This loss hurt. If just one or two little things had gone differently, the Orlando Magic could have beaten the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night. Instead, the Magic lost 85-83 in overtime. Van …

Wednesday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “While back-to-backs and back-to-back-to-backs are brutal, the compressed schedule did diminish an often-despised exercise of NBA life: the morning shootaround. Players got something to celebrate from the lockout after all. So many games in so few days have forced teams to reduce workloads, saving the sleepy-eyed (or, ahem, blood-shot …
