NBA Injury News:
BEST OF MAXIM
Jameer Nelson, who’s a game-time decision (tendinitis) vs. the Lakers, was asked at this morning’s shootaround what it will be like to see former teammate Dwight Howard play for the Los Angeles Lakers tonight. Playing alongside each other for eight seasons, Howard and Nelson were once close, and while the Magic point guard had nothing negative to say about Howard, he implied...
Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: Magic had something to prove
Jameer Nelson was maybe the only guy willing to admit what Sunday's 113-103 win against Dwight Howard the Lakers actually meant. While Jacque Vaughn called it just another game and Glen Davis siad he was not worried about what Dwight Howard was...
YOU GOT SERVED!
Tweet Although the enigmatic Los Angeles Lakers lost again Sunday night to an Orlando Magic team they should have beaten, the game did feature a highlight-worthy play from Metta World Peace: Peace has surprisingly been one of the most consistent Laker players this season. The Lakers fell to the Magic 113-103 and are now 8-9, 3-4 with [...]
Dwight Howard has acknowledged that he could have handled his exit from Orlando better than he did.
Wow, that was some fun Sunday night.
A few hours after the game, I recapped the Magic's win over the Lakers and all the emotion wrapped up in it on the fourth episode of the Orlando Magic Daily Podcast. Feel free to give it a listen!

I kind of do not even want to play tonight's game...
The Lakers may have suffered a devastating, humiliating, humbling defeat at the hands of the lowly Orlando Magic on Sunday, but Ron Artest actually had himself quite the offensive outing. World Peace scored 15 points, made the 1,000th three-pointer of his career, and got the Lakers off the schneid with this driving slam dunk over a much younger and slightly taller Moe Harkless…...

In a brief interview with this newspaper after the Lakers’ 113-103 loss Sunday to the Orlando Magic, Nash said the non-displaced fracture in his left leg hasn’t healed enough for him to play in at least the Lakers’ three-game trip this week. They have stops in Houston (Tuesday), New Orleans (Wednesday) and Oklahoma City (Friday).- Mark Medina
Tonight, the Magic will face Dwight Howard for the first time. A tumultuous year of questions and indecision will not be remedied or rectified in this one meeting. Apologies and forgiveness will not be handed out.
At this point, all the parties are more interested in moving on.
Dwight Howard is moving on, recognizing that he made some mistakes, although perhaps not realizing...
Orlando Magic (5-10) vs. Los Angeles Lakers (8-8)
Does anyone else remember that little thing that happened in Orlando last year?
You know the one about the franchise center who wanted out, then didn't, then did again and then finally got his way leaving a franchise in complete ruin in his wake?
Orlando is playing better than expected, sitting at 5-10...
Sunday is going to be a weird day for Magic fans.
In one sense it will be extremely cathartic -- the object of hatred for much of the past nine months will be front and center on the TV screen. Venom can be unleashed on Twitter and schadenfreude (taking pleasure in other people's pain) can be expressed in a very real manner. Let's not even go into the feelings should...
The Magic defeated the Lakers by a final score of 113-103 in Dwight Howard's first game against his former team.
There was an edge to the Magic from the opening tip. A sharpness about the way they cut. A crispness to the way they passed the ball. An extra bit of focus on defensive rotations.
No one said this game mattered more. But to see the Magic bench explode with every made 3-pointer. To see the team play with nothing to lose (or at least like they did not have a game against Golden...
ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Brooklyn Nets beat the Orlando Magic for the third time this season, 98-86, Friday night by capitalizing on stronger rebounding and superior long-range shooting. The surging Nets (11-4) won their fifth consecutive game to cap their best November in 10 seasons. The Magic (5-10) lost its third consecutive game before starting a five-game West Coast trip on Sunday...
