Tuesday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “It would be tempting to attribute the Orlando Magic‘s 103-96 loss to the Detroit Pistons on Monday night to midseason doldrums. Even the best NBA teams suffer two or three embarrassing losses at home. It happens. But perhaps the loss revealed larger problems that must be addressed before the postseason …

Thursday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “Orlando Magic guard Gilbert Arenas has been struggling lately, and part of that’s because of coach Stan Van Gundy, says, uh, Van Gundy. ‘The biggest thing that he’s struggling with right now is me,’ Van Gundy said. ‘I don’t think that’s necessarily an easy adjustment for anybody, but for a point …

Tuesday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “For now, the Orlando Magic will attempt to treat the discomfort in Brandon Bass‘ left knee without surgery. Team physician Craig Mintzer and the surgeon who operated on Bass during his college years at LSU examined the scans of Bass’ knee. According to coach Stan Van Gundy, the two doctors aren’t convinced that Bass’ pain …

Monday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “If Brandon Bass misses any action because of a possible knee injury — and it’s still possible he’ll miss no time — the Magic will possess just two true big men: Dwight Howard and Ryan Anderson. Malik Allen is still injured, and Earl Clark is more of a combo forward than a …

Wednesday’s Magic Word

George Diaz of the Orlando Sentinel: “One more piece, Otis [Smith]. One more piece that allows you to go from Major Fail to Major Coup. Snag a serviceable backup center, and the Orlando Magic are right there in the conversation of NBA championship contenders. As good as they look now, the Orlando Magic won’t get far in the …

Friday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “The Orlando Magic‘s recent blockbuster trades shocked many NBA observers, but in hindsight, those bold moves should not have surprised anyone. Last May’s Eastern Conference finals loss to the Boston Celtics exposed fundamental flaws with the Magic’s personnel on offense — defects that haunted the Magic intermittently during the first month and a half of …
