Recap: Brooklyn Nets 107, Orlando Magic 68

AP Photo/Phelan M. Ebenhack BOX SCORE It just never felt like Deron Williams and Joe Johnson were even trying. Mostly because the Nets were up by double-digits while the dynamic duo was in the game in the first half. The two didn’t play much in the second half, as Brooklyn enjoyed a 30-point lead for …

Recap: Minnesota Timberwolves 90, Orlando Magic 75

AP Photo/Jim Mone BOX SCORE With injuries to Jameer Nelson (strained groin and hamstring) and Hedo Turkoglu (broken hand), as well as Al Harrington still recovering from surgery on his right knee during the offseason, playing shorthanded was eventually going to catch up to the Orlando Magic. Without Harrington, Nelson, and Turkoglu, the Magic handily …

Recap: Chicago Bulls 99, Orlando Magic 93

Photo by Gary Dineen/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE Trailing 93-89 with 1:01 left in the game, the Orlando Magic had possession of the ball with a chance to cut the Chicago Bulls’ lead to two or one (or tie the game with a four-point play). Even though the Bulls were leading with time winding …

Recap: Orlando Magic 115, Phoenix Suns 94

AP Photo/Reinhold Matay BOX SCORE Of course I saw a 2-0 start for the Magic coming. Who wouldn’t have? The first half couldn’t have gone much worse, which was to be expected. With Jameer Nelson (strained groin) and Hedo Turkoglu (broken hand) sidelined, the Magic had two first-time NBA starters in their lineup in E’Twaun …

Ebenhack BOX SCORE There’s a lot of things to take away from the Orlando Magic’s win against the Denver Nuggets in their regular season home opener, but here are a few that stood out. _______ Jacque Vaughn won his first game as an NBA head coach.

Recap: Orlando Magic 104, San Antonio Spurs 100

AP Photo/John Raoux BOX SCORE Perhaps the biggest takeaway from Sunday night is how legitimate Andrew Nicholson looked. The kid has all the tools. His footwork is sound, his court vision is above-average, and he is as deliberate as he is patient. The guy flat out executes and he’s not scared. As is the case …

Recap: New Orleans Hornets 85, Orlando Magic 80 (Mexico City)

AP Photo/Christian Palma BOX SCORE If you’re a Magic fan and you didn’t watch the game, it’s easy to look at the final score, see that the Orlando Magic lost, and shrug your shoulders in a display of indifference. With Stan Van Gundy sipping Diet Pepsi somewhere without an NBA head coaching gig, Dwight Howard …

Recap: Indiana Pacers 105, Orlando Magic 87

Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images BOX SCORE Turbulent. If I were given only one word to describe the Orlando Magic’s season, turbulent would be it. And in that turbulence, the Magic persevered. First it was “The Indecision.” Next it was the Stan Van Gundy vs. Dwight Howard saga. Then it was Dwight’s season-ending back surgery. …

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE With 8:14 left in the fourth quarter, the Orlando Magic were down by 19 points with the score at 82-63 in favor of the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers, just like in Games 2 and 3, used a strong third quarter surge (outscoring the Magic by 10 …
