Recap: Portland Trail Blazers 125, Orlando Magic 119 (OT)

Photo by Sam Forencich/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE The Blazers and Magic have a number of similarities, but are riding streaks of opposite types at the moment.

Recap: New York Knicks 114, Orlando Magic 106

AP Photo/John Raoux BOX SCORE On a good offensive night for Orlando, the Magic needed more defense, especially down the stretch, to fend off the Knicks in a 114-106 loss. It was the night of the backcourt for Orlando. Nelson (29 points on 10-for-20 shooting) and Afflalo (29 points on 10-for-14 shooting) abused the New …

AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin BOX SCORE Even though Christmas is over, that hasn’t stopped the Orlando Magic from getting into the spirit of Christmas giving.

Recap: New Orleans Hornets 97, Orlando Magic 94

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE In Ryan Anderson’s first game back at Amway Center since being traded by the Orlando Magic before the season, it would not come as a shock if he did his usual damage behind the three-point line and on the offensive glass.

Recap: Utah Jazz 97, Orlando Magic 93

AP Photo/Scott Iskowitz BOX SCORE In a 93-90 loss against the Toronto Raptors on Friday, the Orlando Magic shot themselves in the foot by committing 18 turnovers.
