Monday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “Gilbert Arenas has provided a spark off the bench since joining the Orlando Magic, bringing some much-needed energy to a second unit bereft of offensive creators.

Second Look: Orlando Magic 90, Charlotte Bobcats 86

Second Look: Orlando Magic 92, Charlotte Bobcats 77

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Only 14 teams in NBA history have won a best-of-seven series after trailing 2-0. Like in Orlando’s 98-89 Game 1 victory, [Dwight] Howard again battled through foul trouble, held to another 28-minute night.
