Recap: Cleveland Cavaliers 118, Orlando Magic 94

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE As with most games this season for the Orlando Magic, the final score is almost meaningless. A different roster brought about the same result. Orlando got blown out at home by a bad Cavs team, who pulled out a convincing 118-94 victory despite a relatively mundane …

Recap: Memphis Grizzlies 88, Orlando Magic 82

Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE The fact that Orlando didn’t get blown out by the Grizzlies is a testament to a few things: interior defense, good spot-up shooting, and the reckless abandon by which their perimeter players attacked the hoop. You can’t put enough emphasis on the importance of scoring when …

Recap: Dallas Mavericks 111, Orlando Magic 96

Photo by Glenn James/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE With time winding down in the third quarter, Jameer Nelson beat O.J. Mayo to a loose ball at half-court and had a wide open lane to the basket for a layup. But Nelson elected to pass the ball to J.J. Redick, who was darting to the …

Recap: Charlotte Bobcats 105, Orlando Magic 92

AP Photo/Willie J. Allen Jr. BOX SCORE With each loss, the Orlando Magic bring themselves closer to having the worst record in the NBA, trailing only the Charlotte Bobcats for that dubious honor. The Magic’s latest loss came against those very same Bobcats, as they were defeated 105-92 in their first game back from the …

Recap: Atlanta Hawks 108, Orlando Magic 76

AP Photo/John Raoux BOX SCORE For the Orlando Magic, the Atlanta Hawks have been the bane of their existence for quite some time now. Heading into tonight’s game, the Hawks had won their last eight meetings with the Magic in the regular season. Not to mention Atlanta beating Orlando in the first round of the …

Recap: Orlando Magic 110, Portland Trail Blazers 104

BOX SCORE Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images Finally. The Magic didn’t just pull out a win, finally snapping a season-high 12-game losing streak. More than that, they won a game in convincing fashion. They led for the majority of the game, more or less, once J.J. Redick checked into the game in the …

Recap: Cleveland Cavaliers 119, Orlando Magic 108

AP Photo/Mark Duncan BOX SCORE At this point in the season, wins and losses don’t matter for the Orlando Magic. Even though the Cleveland Cavaliers extended the Magic’s losing streak to a season-high 12 games, what matters more for Orlando is player development. Players like Nikola Vucevic and Andrew Nicholson — the future of the …

Recap: Los Angeles Clippers 86, Orlando Magic 76

AP Photo/John Raoux BOX SCORE It was a C-list type of night in Orlando and the Magic proved that, despite key injuries on both sides, they are capable of losing in almost any circumstance. Jameer Nelson was “the plan” for Orlando and that plan got squelched for the entire second half, leading the Magic to …

Recap: Philadelphia 76ers 78, Orlando Magic 61

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE There’s not a lot of things the Orlando Magic are good at. The Magic struggle to score and they can’t play defense. If there’s one thing the Magic do well, it’s lose games. Facing off against the Philadelphia 76ers, without the services of Jameer Nelson …

Recap: Milwaukee Bucks 107, Orlando Magic 98

Photo by Gary Dineen/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE Going into this game, it didn’t seem very likely that the Magic would have a shot. They were without three starters (Jameer Nelson, Arron Afflalo, and Glen Davis) and the Bucks’ depth looked to be too much for the inexperienced portion of Orlando’s roster that was …
