  1. NBA Playoffs, Magic Celtics: Brandon Bass is giving the Magic a nice boost

    May 28, 2010, 12:54 PM EST

    After playing sparingly throughout the regular season and in the first two rounds of the playoffs, Brandon Bass has been unearthed. After two successful seasons with the Mavs averaging nearly 20 minutes a game, Bass was boxed up and hidden away in Stan Van Gundy’s attic. There were just too many big bodies worthy of…

  2. Stan Van Gundy has his job… and little use for Michael Wilbon

    May 26, 2010, 4:23 PM EST

    There have been plenty of people in Orlando calling for the head of Stan Van Gundy. It’s ludicrous. We’ve gone into that. But the calls are out there. Not from anybody credible, mind you. Magic general manager Otis Smith was outright dismissive of the claims Van Gundy’s job was in danger. Not the standard denial,…

  3. NBA Playoffs, Magic Celtics Game 5: Vince Carter should do the exact same thing he did last game, only completely different and much better

    May 26, 2010, 1:30 PM EST

    Vince Carter had no redeemable value for the Magic in Game 4. He wasn’t scoring well, and finished with just three points on 1-for-9 shooting. He wasn’t making plays for his teammates, even if he wasn’t necessarily a ball-stopper. He wasn’t hitting the boards particularly hard, and he certainly wasn’t making any significant contributions on…

  4. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 5: Stan Van Gundy has to be willing to gamble

    May 26, 2010, 10:50 AM EST

    Once again, Orlando, this is it. You staved off the monster, backing into a cave and swiping at its tentacles, forcing Rajon Rondo to the locker room, forcing Kevin Garnett into tough decisions (other than yelling and barking), and generally didn’t suck. Congratulations. Now you just need to do it three more times in a…

  5. NBA Playoffs, Magic Celtics: Game 4 a good a reason as any of why Stan Van Gundy's job isn't in jeopardy

    May 25, 2010, 1:59 PM EST

    The Magic were on the brink of franchise embarrassment on Monday night, as the Celtics were in command of the series with a 3-0 lead and came back to force overtime despite fantastic outings by Dwight Howard and Jameer Nelson. Orlando’s season could have drifted away had Paul Pierce found an open Ray Allen at…

  6. NBA Playoffs, Magic v. Celtics: Matt Barnes says what we already know about Paul Pierce

    May 21, 2010, 1:23 PM EST

    There are various degrees of flopping. There are players that “flop” strictly as a way to exaggerate contact in order to get a call they rightfully deserve. There are others who flop as a way to validate a smart play, like when the how every player that draws a charge isn’t just knocked over, but…

  7. NBA Playoffs Magic v. Celtics: J.J. Redick making it tough for Magic to keep him off the floor

    May 20, 2010, 3:40 PM EST

    Although the Orlando Magic have struggled at times in their series against the Boston Celtics, they need not despair. It’s never good to drop two games on your home court in the playoffs, especially in consecutive contests in the series’ opening games. Still, Orlando has lost two games by a combined seven points against a…

  8. NBA Playoffs, Celtics v. Magic Game 2: Paul Pierce's Twitter account and good times on the internet

    May 19, 2010, 1:55 AM EST

    UPDATE 1:54 AM: It’s been confirmed by Athlete Interactive, the firm behind Pierce’s Twitter account and other digital media, that Paul’s account has been hacked. Paul Pierce’s Twitter account, @paulpierce34, has been verified for authenticity to give his followers the assurance that the feed is, in fact, legitimate. There’s no guarantee that Pierce is the…
