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?

Monday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade all pooling their talents is unseemly or just unfair … unless they do it in your town, of course.

Thursday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “It was a pretty basic off-day practice for the Orlando Magic on Thursday. They worked on defending cuts – which was a problem in the first half against Houston – and containing pick-and-rolls for much of the practice. There was a lot of full-court work.

Tuesday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “When the practice ended, [Stan] Van Gundy gathered his players at midcourt and gave them the option of holding the day’s second practice later than the scheduled 4 p.m. start time.
