Orlando Magic

  1. Dwight Howard’s technical upheld, suspended for Sunday

    Apr 7, 2011, 6:00 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    So that big Bull against Magic game for Sunday just got a lot less interesting. Dwight Howard’s technical for throwing the ball Wednesday after being called for a foul for shooting slow free throws has been upheld by the league. He is suspended from Sunday’s game because this is his 18th technical this season. Players…

  2. Quentin Richardson ejected from Magic-Bobcats game

    RICHARDSON_QUENTIN

    From the AP: Orlando forward Quentin Richardson has been ejected from the Magic’s game at Charlotte after hitting the Bobcats’ Gerald Henderson in the face with both hands in a scuffle along the baseline. Henderson was trying to dribble out of pressure early in the fourth quarter of a tight game Wednesday night when Richardson…

  3. Dwight Howard gets technical (and suspension) for slow free throws

    Apr 6, 2011, 8:59 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Dwight Howard likely will be suspended for Sunday’s big showdown game against the Chicago Bulls because he takes to long with his free throws. Seriously. Let me explain. First, Howard already has 17 technical fouls this season. For the 16th and every other one after it a player gets a suspension. Howard has served one…

  4. If you believe in the Orlando Magic, just clap your hands

    Apr 6, 2011, 11:33 AM EST

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    “Do you believe in fairies? Say quick that you believe. If you believe, clap your hands!” —J.M. Barrie, from The Adventures of Peter Pan. Apparently, the Orlando Magic work on the same principles as fictional fairies like Tinkerbell. They’ll die if you don’t believe in them. There’s plenty of cynicism around the Orlando Magic and…

  5. Dwight Howard’s jump shot is solid, thank you very much

    Apr 5, 2011, 8:40 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Dwight Howard’s game has evolved. There was a time when it was fair to criticize him for having nothing but power moves. Those days are gone. Now Howard has a bag of tricks to reach into and it shows as he uses a team high 27.1 percent of the possessions but still has a high…

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard is a bit of a perfectionist, and this Magic team frustrates him. Read into that whatever you want about his future. Nenad Kristic says the injury and time away was tough for him. Tom Sanders was named to the Basketball Hall of Fame yesterday. If you just said “who?” then read this. The…

  7. Otis Smith will not consider trading Dwight Howard, no matter what

    Apr 2, 2011, 2:30 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 2

    Otis Smith talked to the Orlando Sentinel Friday night and gave what could commonly be considered the GM’s equivalent of “famous last words.” Dwight Howard‘s  a free agent in 2012. He’s made it pretty clear he’s going to enter free agency, while playing the oh-so-tactful play of “I love Orlando, I just want to win…

  8. Bobcats Stephen Jackson, Tyrus Thomas likely out Friday

    Mar 31, 2011, 3:25 PM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    Charlotte remains one game back but tied in the loss column with Indiana for the final playoff spot in the East, and with that the honor of getting crushed in the first round by the Chicago Bulls. Stephen Jackson, Charlotte’s leading scorer, will miss Friday’s game against Orlando due to a hamstring that continues to…

  9. Dwight Howard says Magic are tired, need some days off

    Mar 31, 2011, 11:08 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Boston is slumping as they try to get guys healthy for the playoffs. San Antonio has lost four straight as guys sit trying to get healthy and rested for the playoffs. Dwight Howard looked around the Orlando locker room after his team lost to Atlanta Wednesday and told the Orlando Sentinel maybe there is something…

  10. Stan Van Gundy is sick of the Knicks/Heat hype

    Mar 29, 2011, 3:46 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    Well, at least Stan Van Gundy will not get fined for ripping David Stern this time. But we did want to bring you his mini-rant before his Magic — minus Jameer Nelson and J.J. Redick — went out and lost to the Knicks. He spoke for a lot of NBA fans (and team employees) outside…

  11. Video: Vintage Carmelo Anthony night gets Knicks win

    Mar 29, 2011, 9:02 AM EST

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    That was vintage Carmelo Anthony Monday night. His team needed a win and he put up 39 points hitting shots with a man in his face all night. He controlled the offense and the game in the second half. Watch the video. The flip side is he shot a pedestrian 46.1 percent, he took the…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Ugly or not, Knicks and Pacers will take wins

    Mar 29, 2011, 8:52 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    What you missed while you were stealing a 600-pound bronze moose statue… Knicks 113, Magic 106 (OT): The Kicks were desperate for a win. The Magic were without Jameer Nelson and J.J. Redick which meant heavy doses of Gilbert Arenas (who was 1-of-7 from three). Dwight Howard fouled out. That meant a streak breaking win…

  13. Quote of the day: Van Gundy defends D’Antoni

    Mar 28, 2011, 7:38 PM EST

    Mike D'Antoni

    “As a coach, you don’t worry about that stuff too much because it goes with the business and we all will face a lot of criticism at times. That’s the way it goes. The rest of us all know tha tMike’s a hell of a coach. In that profession, we all know how good Mike…

  14. Jameer Nelson to miss Knicks game with knee injury

    Mar 28, 2011, 7:00 PM EST

    NELSON_JAMEER

    According to Ken Berger of CBS, Gilbert Arenas will start at point guard for the Magic tonight in the place of Jameer Nelson, who is out with a sprained right knee. The Magic are playing on the road against the free-falling New York Knicks, who desperately need a win. Ronny Turiaf is also injured, which…

  15. Knicks’ tired legs leading to fourth-quarter collapses

    Mar 24, 2011, 9:52 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    It happened again Wednesday night — the Knicks had seized a lead with a 15-6 run just before halftime then solidified it with a 7-0 spurt early in the third quarter. They had a shot at a big win over Orlando. Then it fell apart, as it has so often lately for the Knicks. The Magic were…

  16. Orlando Magic growing NHL-style playoff beards

    Mar 24, 2011, 10:05 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Playoff beards are an NHL tradition — you let it go as long as your team stays alive. So by the finals the guys look like Canadians who opted to be lumberjacks rather than hockey players (oh he’s a lumberjack and he’s okay, he sleeps all night and he works all day). Now Orlando is…

  17. Jimmy Fallon challenges Dwight Howard to random object shooting contest

    Mar 23, 2011, 8:30 PM EST

    Howard Free Throws

    I’ll admit it, we bought my toddler daughter one of those mini basketball hoops and I’ve spent time trying to shoot rocks, charcoal briquettes, golf balls and anything else I can get my hands on through it. Consider this the adult version of that — Jimmy Fallon and Dwight Howard trying to shoot Shamrock Shakes…

  18. Abdul-Jabbar says Howard has “blind spots” in his game

    Mar 23, 2011, 6:11 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard is having a phenomenal season. The 25-year old center is scoring 3.3 more points per 40 minutes than he did a year ago, is the key player on one of the five best defenses in the NBA, is still a monster on the boards, and has a decent chance at winning his first…

  19. Video: Jameer Nelson’s game winning three for Orlando

    Mar 19, 2011, 10:46 AM EST

    Jameer Nelson, Orlando Magic

    Orlando was in a dogfight, a defensive struggle with the reborn Denver Nuggets. We’ll we’re going to call it a defensive struggle, you could also call it night of the ugly offense with missed shots (both teams shot under 40 percent) and turnovers for everyone. Bottom line, it was 82-82 with 5.2 seconds left when…

  20. J.J. Redick’s MRI shows only abdominal strain, still out Friday

    Mar 18, 2011, 2:09 PM EST

    Image (1) nba_redick-thumb-250x185-6977.jpg for post 3009

    Magic sharpshooter J.J. Redick has missed the last four games for the team, so they decided to have an MRI done and make sure his abdominal muscle strain really was only a strain. And it is, the MRI came back negative, reports Josh Robins of Orlando Sentinel (via twitter). Redick still will sit out Orlando’s…

  21. Dwight Howard went off again, must be on an MVP ballots

    Mar 17, 2011, 4:12 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    I don’t labor under the illusion that Dwight Howard is going to win the MVP. Derrick Rose seems to be pulling ahead in that race and if the Bulls keep winning (especially if they get the top spot in the East) he will be a deserving recipient. But Dwight Howard needs to be on the…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Orlando tries to throw it away but still wins

    Mar 17, 2011, 8:34 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    What you missed while watching Wile. E. Coyote in 127 hours…. The latest beat down of the Heat, this time by the Thunder, was our game of the night. Magic 93, Bucks 89 (OT): The way the Magic played the end of regulation they are lucky to have won (and earned a playoff spout with…

  23. Players, David Stern find common ground: Stan Van Gundy annoys them

    Mar 15, 2011, 5:25 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 2

    We’re looking for anything, any little sliver of hope we can find to help us believe that a lockout in the NBA is not inevitable. That somehow the owners and players can find some common ground. That David Stern and the players can sit down in a room and agree about something. Like they find…

  24. Kobe Bryant game-time decision Monday night

    Mar 14, 2011, 1:12 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks

    Kobe Bryant played through a sprained ankle aggravated during the Lakers thumping of the Dallas Mavericks Saturday, but now that the ankle has had a couple days to really swell up and get sore, he is a game-time decision for Monday night’s big game against the Orlando Magic. So said Phil Jackson, and we trust…

  25. Dwight Howard can still dunk with plenty of power

    Mar 14, 2011, 8:05 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    This dunk came just minutes into the Magic’s win over the Suns, but it pretty much sums up the game — Robin Lopez had no answer for Dwight Howard, and neither did any other Suns players. Including Marcin Gortat. Mostly just consider this a reminder that for all the steps to round out his game…
