Recap: New York Knicks 113, Orlando Magic 97

Photo by Ray Amati/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE The Magic are great at having small successes, but still losing games.

Recap: Brooklyn Nets 97, Orlando Magic 77

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE Let’s just cut to the chase.

Recap: Detroit Pistons 104, Orlando Magic 102

Photo by FPaul Chapman/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE The Magic’s offensive strategy in Sunday’s loss to the Pistons was pretty simple: Get the ball to J.J.

Recap: Dallas Mavericks 111, Orlando Magic 105

AP Photo/John Raoux BOX SCORE Despite starting off hot and jumping out to an 18-4 lead over the Mavericks, the Magic lost this game in the first quarter.

Recap: Charlotte Bobcats 106, Orlando Magic 100

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE In keeping with their schizophrenic nature this season, the Orlando Magic followed up a surprising win against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday with a loss to the lowly Charlotte Bobcats two days later.

Recap: Orlando Magic 97, Indiana Pacers 86

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE Steals, points off turnovers, transition buckets, a ridiculously high three-point field goal percentage, getting a former All-Star into foul trouble.
