Leave it to the Orlando Magic to lose to the worst team in the league one night and then defeat the best team in the league the next time out.
That is exactly what Orlando did as they held on to defeat the Chicago Bulls 99-94 on Thursday night following Tuesday’s embarrassing loss to Charlotte.
Dwight Howard had his way with the Chicago front line bullying them to a tune of 29 points and 18 rebounds.
Howard gave the Chicago faithful a first hand look at what they could have if the Bulls enter the “Superman sweepstakes”.

“Nah, it’s pretty cold here,” Howard said.
Howard, who can become an unrestricted free agent after the season, has asked the team to trade him.
Around this time of the year, when the trade deadline is fast approaching, it is very interesting how so many writers have or rush to have their own opinions as to who will be traded where and how. It is like a rat race, with media men trying extremely hard to become the first to come across information. By so doing, some have desperately created information (speculation) and presented...
