Tuesday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “It would be tempting to attribute the Orlando Magic‘s 103-96 loss to the Detroit Pistons on Monday night to midseason doldrums.

Thursday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “Orlando Magic guard Gilbert Arenas has been struggling lately, and part of that’s because of coach Stan Van Gundy, says, uh, Van Gundy. ‘The biggest thing that he’s struggling with right now is me,’ Van Gundy said. ‘I don’t think that’s necessarily an easy adjustment for anybody, but for a point …

Tuesday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Dwight Howard has been the team’s most valuable player. He’s also staked a claim to league MVP honors.

Monday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “After 14 games, Hedo Turkoglu’s return to the Orlando Magic is widely considered a smashing success. He’s playing smartly and efficiently, thriving in the system that helped him enjoy the best years of his career from 2007-09. Amazingly, though, Turkoglu is playing at a near-all-star level while barely even getting the …
