Wednesday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “Dwight Howard is 6-for-10 on mid-range jumpers this season, a promising statistic for the future of his offensive game. After making more than half of his jumpers during the preseason, it’s looking more and more like it’s a real part of his game. Howard himself is tired of talking about …

Does Vince Carter Still Have His Mojo?

Via Evan Dunlap of Orlando Pinstriped Post: In this morning’s Orlando Sentinel, columnist George Diaz expressed a sentiment I know a lot of Orlando Magic fans share: the team is fatally flawed against teams like the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat, which can single-cover Dwight Howard in the low post with a minimum of fuss. [...] …

The Clock is Ticking for the Orlando Magic

Via George Diaz of the Orlando Sentinel: The Orlando Magic are going to win a bunch of games this season. My guesstimate is that the bar starts at 50 and shoots up from there. Expect lots of good times in the fabulously-plush Amway Center. But the celebratory spirit may come crashing down in the playoff …

Monday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “The loss to the Miami Heat, as embarrassing and as complete as it was, will provide one beneficial by-product for the Orlando Magic. It will allow the players to measure their character less than a week into the 2010-11 regular season. How do they recover from a loss to a rival? How …

Friday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “Perhaps the most surprising element of the Orlando Magic’s 112-83 victory was the play of Mickael Pietrus; specifically, the fact that he didn’t play in the first half. Stan Van Gundy wanted to stick to a nine-man rotation, and that surprisingly left both Pietrus and Ryan Anderson on the …

A Rivalry to Be, or Not to Be: That Is the Question

Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images There is no rivalry between the Orlando Magic and the Miami Heat. There is no rich history between the two franchises. Celtics vs. Lakers it is not. History? Boston and L.A. have decades of it. Geography? They are the East vs. West. Bad blood? Five words: Kevin McHale clotheslines Kurt …

LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined forces with Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat to create the SuperFriends.

Wednesday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Did you know that tonight is, in effect, the start of the [Orlando] Magic‘s playoff push? Forget the calendar. Stan’s blueprint is designed so the Magic at times prepare for the postseason during the regular season, from developing young players to experimenting with certain schemes to seeing that aging Vince Carter …

The Orlando Magic Return to the Familiar Underdog Role

Photo by J. Meric/Getty Images Via John Hollinger of ESPN Insider: Virtually every set of predictions lists one of three teams as champion: the Lakers, Heat or Celtics. I’m wondering if this consensus is missing the boat on reality, and I’m not just saying that because the Heat and Lakers looked somewhere south of dominant …

The Orlando Magic’s Journey Begins Tomorrow

Via Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: City officials and Orlando Magic employees have spent weeks making sure that Amway Center will be ready for its first NBA regular-season game this Thursday. But even after countless dry runs and four preseason exhibitions, no one can definitively answer a fundamental question: Just how loud will the …
