Instead, with the grand purge of Vince Carter, Marcin Gortat, Rashard Lewis, and Mickael Pietrus, as well as an injury to Jason Williams, the Philadelphia 76ers were able to beat the Magic — a team that was …

Sneak Preview: Orlando Magic at Denver Nuggets

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Stan Van Gundy doesn’t expect the Orlando Magic to rank near the top of the league in fastbreak points, but the current state of affairs is, in his words, “absurd.” And that’s being charitable. Orlando entered Monday ranked dead last in the NBA in fastbreak points by a shocking margin. The Magic average …

When general manager Otis Smith signed Chris Duhon as a free agent in the offseason, the expectation was that the Orlando Magic would seal up the back-up point guard role for the next few years. Previous back-ups like Anthony Johnson and Jason Williams served their roles effectively for the Magic, but each of them were …

Recap: Orlando Magic 104, Detroit Pistons 91

BOX SCORE No Dwight Howard. No Jameer Nelson. No J.J. Redick. No Mickael Pietrus.

Wednesday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Word is that teams have inquired about point guard Chauncey Billups, and nobody on the planet can be surprised.

Thursday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “So, Dwight Howard can hit mid-range jumpers now? That doesn’t concern the Washington Wizards. Coach Flip Saunders and center JaVale McGee both reiterated the same point: they’d rather have Howard shooting jumpers than scoring in the paint. […] Saunders mentioned Karl Malone as a player who expanded his game …

Friday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: Magic forward Malik Allen said he hadn’t thought about what happened to him in Orlando three years ago. And that, folks, is a good thing. A great thing, actually. It means Malik’s ticker is ticking like it should. Allen was with the Chicago Bulls in 2007 when he suddenly …
