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.

Monday’s Magic Word

Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel: “When the Atlanta Hawks visited Amway Center on Nov. 8, the Orlando Magic were focused on stopping volume-scoring guard Joe Johnson.
