Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “After the Utah Jazz scored 56 points in the paint in edging the Heat in OT Tuesday night, I would guess Stan Van Gundy will fill out his lineup with either Brandon Bass or Ryan Anderson at power forward and use Marcin Gortat in a Twin Towers-combo with Dwight …

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.

Thursday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “You don’t have to watch hours of game tape or pore over pages of statistics to produce a scouting report on Jameer Nelson.

Wednesday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “Many Orlando Magic observers, including some of us here at the Orlando Sentinel, were a bit skeptical when Stan Van Gundy said both Ryan Anderson and Brandon Bass would play every night.
