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.

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.

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.

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?
