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: “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 …

Thursday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Stan Van Gundy and Dwight Howard saw warning signs as the Orlando Magic won game after game after game these last few weeks.

Wednesday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “When the Orlando Magic traded for Gilbert Arenas, many wondered how long it would be until Arenas took the starting point guard position away from Jameer Nelson. Turns out, Nelson’s play is putting that debate to rest.

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 …

Thursday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “The Orlando Magic are averaging 7.9 fastbreak points per game, which is, by far, worst in the NBA. That statistic is mostly with Rashard Lewis and Vince Carter on the wings. With Gilbert Arenas, Hedo Turkoglu and Jason Richardson, the Magic have a trio of wing players who can push …

Sneak Preview: San Antonio Spurs at Orlando Magic

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “The person who now wears No. 15 for the Orlando Magic looks and sounds just like the guy who wore No. 15 during the team’s run to the 2009 NBA Finals. Same goatee. Same smile. Same accent. But which Hedo Turkoglu did the Magic receive in their recent blockbuster …
