Video Analysis: A strong start and finish on Christmas Day

The Orlando Magic are in the midst of a three-game winning streak, which is modest by NBA standards, but one of the wins came against the Boston Celtics — holders of the best record in the Eastern Conference — on Christmas Day. The reason why that is a big deal, of sorts, is because the …

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. But he hasn’t brought that energy in a particularly efficient manner. Arenas is assisting at a 29.4 percent rate and he’s pushing the pace …

J.J. Redick living up to his new billing

Photo by Sam Greenwood/Getty Images It’s been said that money changes people. Usually for the worst. For J.J.

Friday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “The Orlando Magic‘s recent blockbuster trades shocked many NBA observers, but in hindsight, those bold moves should not have surprised anyone. Last May’s Eastern Conference finals loss to the Boston Celtics exposed fundamental flaws with the Magic’s personnel on offense — defects that haunted the Magic intermittently during the first month and a half of …

Recap: Orlando Magic 123, San Antonio Spurs 101

BOX SCORE Badly needing a win, the Orlando Magic were able to defeat the San Antonio Spurs by the score of 123-101 in front of a nationally televised audience and sellout crowd at the Amway Center. The Spurs entered the game with the best record in the NBA at 25-3 and even though they were …

Thursday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “The Orlando Magic are averaging 7.9 fastbreak points per game, which is, by far, worst in the NBA. That statistic is mostly with Rashard Lewis and Vince Carter on the wings. With Gilbert Arenas, Hedo Turkoglu and Jason Richardson, the Magic have a trio of wing players who can push …

Navigating through murderer’s row

Photo by Fernando Medina Two games since the Orlando Magic acquired Gilbert Arenas, Jason Richardson, and Hedo Turkoglu. Two losses. Losing to the Atlanta Hawks and Dallas Mavericks is nothing the Magic should be ashamed of, considering head coach Stan Van Gundy is trying to integrate three players on the fly in the middle of …
