Sneak Preview: Orlando Magic at Miami Heat

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Dwight’s practically invisible. His numbers have grown to ridiculous sizes lately, but you hear little chatter about his MVP candidacy. If it’s not LeBron James leading the conversation, it’s Derrick Rose. Or vice-versa. As a voter, I say [Dwight] Howard has joined them in the stretch run. He’s on the red …

Thursday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “All 13 players on the Magic roster attended the team meeting. Point guard Jameer Nelson, who was not the subject of any trade rumors, was asked if it would be a relief if no one was traded before the deadline arrived. ‘It probably would be a relief for a …

Monday’s Magic Word

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Funny, I don’t recall Stern coming to Carmelo’s defense. In fact, deep inside, part of him has to love this ‘Melo-to-Knicks and ‘Melo-to-Nets media scrum. Keeps the NBA in the news, you know. Didn’t Stern and his fellow owners create a landscape inwhich ‘Melo is using to his advantage? Doesn’t he …

Tuesday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Dwight Howard has been the team’s most valuable player. He’s also staked a claim to league MVP honors. The 25-year-old center brought a more serious demeanor to practice this season and — as much as he dislikes talking about it — a more diversified, more patient offensive repertoire. He’s averaging …

Second Look: Denver Nuggets 111, Orlando Magic 94

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Frustration oozed throughout the Orlando Magic locker room late Tuesday night. Stan Van Gundy dressed down his players after the final buzzer. Later, Jameer Nelson sat at his locker, read the postgame box score, crumpled up the piece of paper and threw it to the ground. In a postgame interview, Dwight Howard …

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 …

Wednesday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “Suddenly, Rashard Lewis’ stats are meaning out to his career average. Lewis made 7-of-10 field goals for a game-high 20 points in the Orlando Magic’s 90-79 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night, and his horrid start to the season appears to be what he’s said all along …
