Orlando Magic

  1. Magic’s Nikola Vucevic has concussion, likely out a week or more

    Jan 7, 2014, 6:31 PM EDT

    Sacramento at Orlando

    During the third quarter of the Magic’s blowout loss to the Clippers Monday night, Nikola Vucevic went up to try and block a Blake Griffin shot, ended up getting flipped and took a hard fall where he landed on his side and his head hit the floor. Vucevic suffered a concussion and the Orlando big…

  2. Report: Clippers considering adding Hedo Turkoglu, Sasha Vujacic

    Jan 7, 2014, 12:10 PM EDT

    Sasha Vujacic

    For one night Monday, the Clippers’ offense looked just fine without Chris Paul. Unfortunately, the Clippers don’t get to play a disinterested and dispirited Orlando Magic team every night. With CP3 out, the Clippers need more guys who can create shots. Which is why the Clippers are thinking of making a roster change and bringing…

  3. DeAndre Jordan makes a poster with Glen Davis in it (VIDEO)

    Jan 7, 2014, 12:29 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Boston Celtics

    This is one of those poster dunks where the guy who gets posterized deserves some credit — Glen Davis could have let DeAndre Jordan have the transition dunk and taken the ball out of bounds. Instead Davis went for the block, he tried to make a play on the ball. It failed. Pretty miserably. This…

  4. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Golden State climbing rankings fast

    Jan 6, 2014, 2:29 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    The top two teams in the East are the top two teams on PBT’s Power Rankings, but with their current nine-game win streak Golden State has moved in as the top ranked team in the West. If they keep defending like this they are legitimate contenders come playoff time.   1. Pacers (27-6, Last Week…

  5. Orlando Magic waive Hedo Turkoglu

    Jan 3, 2014, 6:09 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Dallas Mavericks

    UPDATE 6:09 pm: And it’s official, the Orlando Magic have waived Hedo Turkoglu. No team is going to claim him off waivers and pick up the $6 million he is owed. It is possible he gets a minimum deal, more likely he gets a 10 day contract soon. 4:04 pm: So much for trying to…

  6. Thursday night NBA grades: Golden State get a couple “A” grades

    Jan 3, 2014, 3:22 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while worrying about what was really in your donkey meat… Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors. When he is going like he was in this game — especially in the third quarter when he had 14 of his 36 — there is nothing you can do.…

  7. Hedo Turkoglu still on trade block, still hopes to get back in NBA

    Jan 2, 2014, 12:54 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    There have been a lot of trade rumors around Andrew Bynum — if a team trades for him then waives him by Jan. 7 (or if the Cavaliers waive him) they save $6 million on the salary cap. Marc Stein at ESPN reminds us Bynum is not the only guy in this situation — Orlando…

  8. The Extra Pass: A rookie report (plus Wednesday’s recaps)

    Jan 2, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    Due to injuries and the lack of a transcendent talent, this year’s draft class has been pretty underwhelming as a whole. Still, that doesn’t mean there haven’t been a few pleasant surprises along the way. Now that we’ve had a little more time to evaluate, let’s check in on three of the most impressive rookies…

  9. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Even without Westbrook Thunder take top spot

    Dec 30, 2013, 4:51 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Oklahoma City Thunder

    It’s legitimate to question how well Oklahoma City will fair in the roughly 27 games they will play without Russell Westbrook, but so far so good and that slides the to the top of the last power rankings of 2013. 1. Thunder (25-5, Last Week No. 2). They won all their games last week, but…

  10. The Extra Pass: Changes coming in threes; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Dec 30, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    If you’ve watched basketball this year and thought at some point, “Man, these teams sure are shooting a lot of threes”, you’re not alone. Firing up shots from behind the arc has become more of a standard practice for most NBA teams (except for good ol’ Memphis) and teams like the Phoenix Suns and Portland…

  11. Arron Afflalo says he’d appreciate All-Star consideration from Eastern Conference coaches

    Dec 28, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Arron Afflalo

    The Magic are in a rebuilding mode, and as their 9-20 record will tell you, that means that wins have been hard to come by this season. But a bright spot has been the play of Arron Afflalo, who has been consistently putting up big numbers — he’s posted his career high of 43 points…

  12. Magic expected to waive or trade Hedo Turkoglu by Jan. 7

    Dec 25, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic Hedo Turkoglu complains after he picked up second foul against New York Knicks in NBA basketball game in New York

    Hedo Turkoglu probably isn’t on anyone’s radar outside of Orlando, mainly because he hasn’t played a game for the Magic or been around the team in any capacity at all since the season began. Turkoglu isn’t a part of the team’s future plans, so they essentially told him to get lost — while being paid,…

  13. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Santa brings presents to Blazers, Thunder; lumps of coal to Atlantic

    Dec 23, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Oklahoma City almost took over the top spot in the rankings, until they laid an egg Sunday night. The Blazers hold on for another week, but they didn’t look elite last week even in their wins and this week sees a few big tests.   1. Trail Blazers (23-5, Last Week No. 1). If the…

  14. Victor Oladipo with the chasedown block on Trey Burke (VIDEO)

    Dec 19, 2013, 9:31 AM EDT

    Victor Oladipo

    The Jazz won an ugly one against a Magic team playing without Arron Afflalo on Wednesday, and Trey Burke thoroughly outplayed fellow rookie Victor Oladipo in the process. Burke finished with a career high 30 points, while Oladipo managed just three on 1-of-12 shooting in 36 minutes of action. But Orlando likes Oladipo for his…

  15. The Extra Pass: Golden State’s Elevator Screen plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    The Signature Series takes a look at a play that’s largely unique to one team. Here’s Golden State’s Elevator screen play: The “Elevator” screen is one of the most aesthetically pleasing plays you’ll see in the league, particularly when it’s run by Golden State. That’s in large part because any possession that ends in a…

  16. The Extra Pass: The Clippers’ “Rosie” Screen; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Over the next few days in this space, we’ll break down a play that’s largely unique to one team. To kick off this signature series, we’ll start with the Los Angeles Clippers’ “Ring-Around-The-Rosie” screen. Innovation in the NBA is often about adding little wrinkles to something very simple. There are no “Wildcat” offenses that take…

  17. PBT’s NBA Power Rankings: Stability at the top, trades could shake up bottom

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    There is no movement at the top of the standings as the top five teams went 15-1 last week (and that one loss was to another top 5 team). However, get past that five and you get into teams like the Rockets, Suns and others where trades could really change rankings as we move toward…

  18. Magic’s Glen Davis dislocated shoulder during game, had it popped back in, returned

    Dec 16, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    NEW YORK, NY - DECEMBER 06: Glen Davis #11 of the Orlando Magic reacts to a call in the first quarter against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on December 6, 2013 in New York City.

    Glen Davis acted like a hockey player Sunday night. He has missed a lot of time and worked hard to get back on the court following a couple of foot surgeries — he’s not going to let a little injury keep him from going now. A little injury like a dislocated shoulder, one he got…

  19. The Extra Pass: Eric Bledsoe’s path from afterthought to building block; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Dec 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    In Eric Bledsoe’s final game with the Los Angeles Clippers last season, he played nine minutes and 28 seconds. In that game, the Memphis Grizzlies scored 118 points despite possessing what most would consider a below-average offense. Mike Conley, a player Bledsoe has routinely shut down throughout his career, went to the free throw line…

  20. Magic’s Nicholson ejected for late cheap shot on Cavs’ Varejao (VIDEO)

    Dec 14, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Varejao

    Near the very end of the Cavaliers’ win over the Magic on Friday, Orlando’s Andrew Nicholson was called for a flagrant two foul that resulted in an automatic ejection for shoving Anderson Varejao to the floor. Apparently Nicholson didn’t appreciate the fact that Varejao scored the meaningless basket with the Cavs up six and just…

  21. Glen Davis gets up close and personal in postgame interview (video)

    Dec 12, 2013, 3:25 PM EDT

    Josh McRoberts, Glen Davis

    Glen Davis, even down to the lowest weight of his career, is big. After games, he’s big and sweaty. So, FOX Sports Florida’s Dante Marchitelli faced quite the challenge of staying focused during this, literally, touching interview. That man deserves a raise! Marchitelli, not Davis. Davis is paid just fine, and at least it’s his…

  22. Victor Oladipo rejects Carmelo Anthony at the Rim (VIDEO)

    Dec 7, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Victor Oladipo

    The Knicks rolled the Magic 121-83 on Friday to earn a much-needed second straight victory, but Orlando rookie Victor Oladipo came up with at least one play that was worthy of the highlight reel. As Carmelo Anthony drives the lane for what looks to be a certain slam, Oladipo rises up and rejects him at…

  23. Glen Davis says he’s at his lowest weight since eighth grade

    Dec 6, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks

    Apparently Glen Davis was a big child. Very big. Big Baby just returned to the lineup for the first time since last January, when he broke a bone in his foot that took two surgeries to repair properly. He’s looked pretty good since coming back — he had 33 points in the game against Philadelphia…

  24. Orlando’s Arron Afflalo drops 43 in loss to Philly (VIDEO)

    Dec 4, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v. Philadelphia 76ers

    The night before Paul George did the same thing for the Pacers, this time it was Arron Afflalo — scoring 43 points in a losing effort. Afflalo was overshadowed by the two rookies notching triple-doubles (Michael Carter-Williams, Victor Oladipo) but this was a career high for the former UCLA star. He had 14 in the…

  25. The Extra Pass: Chemistry clicking in Denver as Nuggets beat Nets to win seventh straight, and Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 4, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    brook lopez joe johnson kg

    NEW YORK – If it was a fight, they would have stopped it. To say the Nuggets beat the Nets on Tuesday to earn their seventh straight win wouldn’t at all be an accurate description of how Denver came out and destroyed Brooklyn in the third quarter, and then continued the assault against a depleted and…
