Tuesday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “To paraphrase Brent Musburger, you are looking live at Richie Adubato‘s closet. It’s the biggest one in the roomy house in Heathrow, and it contains more bright, wild colors than a kid’s crayon box. You could probably see the purple smoking jacket and pink tie collection from outer space …

Photo by Marc Serota/Getty Images There’s been a lot of talk about Dwight Howard‘s improvements on offense and the praise is well-deserved, but there’s another player for the Orlando Magic that has improved this year as well.

Friday’s Magic Word

Video Analysis: How Not to Beat a Zone Defense

Zone defenses. Teams in the NBA rarely utilize them because, well, they don’t work very often. This is basketball at its highest level, not high school varsity, so a 2-3 matchup zone isn’t going to last long against the likes of the Los Angeles Lakers and others.

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 …

Tuesday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “No Orlando Magic player has come under more scrutiny this year than Rashard Lewis. While bouncing between small forward and power forward, Lewis is shooting just 29 percent from three-point range and averaging 10.7 points, and he’s only surpassed 13 points in a game once this year. And because of …
