Recap: Atlanta Hawks 109, Orlando Magic 81

AP Photo/John Raoux BOX SCORE With Dwight Howard out (herniated disk in lower back), it’s no surprise that the Atlanta Hawks beat the Orlando Magic on Friday. The Hawks haven’t had much trouble defeating the Magic with Dwight for the past two seasons, so taking him out of the equation made Friday’s game a mere …

Recap: Washington Wizards 93, Orlando Magic 85

Photo by Ned Dishman/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE With Dwight Howard sidelined with a back injury, the Orlando Magic were able to get by on Monday without him against the Detroit Pistons thanks in large part due to exceptional three-point shooting and, surprisingly enough, good defense. But against the Washington Wizards, the Magic failed …

Recap: Orlando Magic 119, Detroit Pistons 89

AP Photo/Phelan M. Ebenhack BOX SCORE In 2009 and 2010, blowouts were routine for the Orlando Magic. In 2011, less so. In 2012, it seems like the Magic have become more accustomed to getting blown out than blowing teams out. Instead of Orlando dishing out the pain, they’ve been receiving it. Which is why the …

Recap: Orlando Magic 88, Philadelphia 76ers 82

AP Photo/Michael Perez BOX SCORE The Orlando Magic aren’t going to win a championship this season. That much is certain. But amidst all the turmoil, all the drama, and all the BS (as head coach Stan Van Gundy would like to say), the Magic are a good team and capable of doing good things together. …

Recap: New York Knicks 96, Orlando Magic 80

AP Photo/John Raoux BOX SCORE After head coach Stan Van Gundy let it be known at today’s shootaround that Dwight Howard wants him fired (and has wanted him fired since the offseason according to David Aldridge of TNT), it’s no surprise that the Orlando Magic lost to the New York Knicks. It seemed like a …

Recap: Detroit Pistons 102, Orlando Magic 95

Photo by Allen Einstein/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE It’s no surprise that the Orlando Magic lost to the Detroit Pistons on the road — again. In the Stan Van Gundy era, the Magic are 2-6 against the Pistons on the road in the regular season. Only in Van Gundy’s first season with Orlando did …

Recap: Denver Nuggets 104, Orlando Magic 101

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE It would be easy to explain away the Orlando Magic’s loss to the Denver Nuggets by using an excuse — Dwight Howard wasn’t playing due to back spasms. But that doesn’t advance the conversation. There’s many reasons why the Magic lost to the Nuggets and, by …

Recap: Dallas Mavericks 100, Orlando Magic 98

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images BOX SCORE The Magic dropped an infuriating game to the Mavericks on Friday, 100-98.  Despite having control for the better part of the contest, the Magic unraveled in the fourth quarter and missed a couple looks at the buzzer to seal it for the Mavericks. It seemed for …

Recap: New York Knicks 108, Orlando Magic 86

Photo by Chris Trotman/Getty Images BOX SCORE When it comes to examining the Orlando Magic’s flaws under a microscope, most of the focus usually centers around the roster lacking a consistent and dynamic shot creator on the perimeter. Other roster issues including the following: the bench is bad outside of J.J. Redick, three starters (Jameer …

Recap: Orlando Magic 117, Toronto Raptors 101

AP Photo/The Canadian Press, Chris Young BOX SCORE The book on Ryan Anderson is simple. He shoots three-pointers. Mind you, that’s not to sell Anderson short as a player. He’s an excellent offensive rebounder. He rarely turns the ball over. But at the end of the day, his greatest strength is his three-point shooting. Which …
