Raptors' DeRozan hits game-winner to beat Magic

ORLANDO -- Hours before Thursday night's game Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey talked about teaching his young team "to make winning plays in clutch situations." Guard DeMar DeRozan, obviously, is a quick learner. With two defenders hanging over him, DeRozan came to the rescue, hitting a game-winning, fallaway jumper from 22 feet as time expired, leading the Raptors...

DeMar DeRozan Hits Game Winner Vs. Magic

DeMar DeRozan hits a tough fadeaway as time expires and mean mugs the Orlando Magic as the Toronto Raptors walk away with a 97-95 win:  

Raptors 97, Magic 95

ORLANDO -- DeMar DeRozan scored 22 points, including a fallaway jumper at the buzzer, to lead the Toronto Raptors to a 97-95 victory over the Orlando Magic on Thursday night at Amway Center. DeRozen had 14 points in the fourth quarter, including his dramatic 18-foot game-winning shot with two defenders around him. Unheralded center Amir Johnson had 21 points and 10 rebounds for...

DeRozan deflates Magic with buzzer beater

The urgency was awoken within the Magic late in the fourth quarter. Wittling down an 11-point lead would no longer cut it with time running out. Drastic action was needed. A J.J. Redick 4-point play to tie the game with 50 seconds left. A Glen Davis offensive rebound and pass to E'Twaun Moore for a game-re-tying floater with 20 seconds left. A key foul from Davis had the...

Glen Davis asks Orlando Magic rookie: Where is my PB&J sandwich? (video)

As part of some strange hazing ritual that is as odd as it is chock-full of necessary vitamins and minerals, it appears rookies on the Orlando Magic squad must provide veterans — especially those veterans on the larger size who go by the moniker ‘Big Baby” — a daily ration of at minimum one peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Poor Magic rookie Andrew Nicholson learned that...

Magic have much to take away from 1st half

There is no room for moral victories in the NBA. There are no almosts, no what ifs, no stat lines for nice tries. There are only wins and losses. In the first 41 games of the regular season, the Orlando Magic have lost 13 more games than theyve won. Their 14-27 record includes some highs, such as beating both the Clippers, who have the third-best record in the league, and the...

When the Orlando Magic (14-27) and Toronto Raptors (15-27) meet tonight at 7 p.m. EST, it will be their final matchup of the season. Toronto leads the season series 3-0. In fact, the Magic's 2-14 run began with a loss to the Raptors on December 21st.

Nikola Vucevic double-doubles (19 and 14) in 30 minutes, sits fourth quarter

Nikola Vucevic didn't play in the fourth quarter but still finished with a double-double (19 points and 14 rebounds). Vucevic did his damage in just 30 minutes. Orlando coach Jacque Vaughn told Magic beat writer Josh Robbinsthat he sat the center in the fourth quarter due to matchups. Vucevic added three blocks and an assist in the loss. He's 79-percent owned in Yahoo...

Magic's offense finally finds its rhythm

There is one positive for the Magic even through this stretch of losing 15 of 17 games. While the defense has fallen apart, the offense has picked up the slack and has played extremely well. In the last 10 games (where Orlando has gone 2-8, mind you), the Magic have had an average offensive rating of 106.9. The team's offensive rating for the season is 103.2, good for 21st...

Glen Davis Tries To Eat Aaron Gray’s Face (VIDEO)

Glen “Big Baby” Davis is a really, really, really weird dude.  On top of being a really, really, really weird dude, he also has a volatile temperament.  Davis leads the Orlando Magic with three technical fouls this season, and he has always been known to let his emotions get the best of him.  As a Boston Celtic, Big Baby once cried on the bench after Kevin Garnett gave him...

Celtics Interested in JJ Redick

While everyone has been talking about the Lakers downfall, the Celtics haven’t been that much better. They are looking old and shooting horribly lately, so they are looking to bring in some help before trading deadline. Hearing Celts, even before season-worst 7-for-32 shooting from 15+ feet in NYK loss, have ramped up their interest in Magic’s J.J. Redick — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine...

Big Baby Interrupts Rookies Interview To Demand Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich (video)

As we constantly remind folks on here, Glen Big Baby Davis is a different type of cat.  Orlando Magic rookie Andrew Nicholson was giving Fox Sports an interview when Davis interrupted to remind him of something. See Nicholson is a rookie, and in professional sports leagues, rookies go through some sort of hazing whether it be carrying bags, getting breakfast, or in Nicholson’s...

Orlando Magic Continue Downward Spiral

The Orlando Magic (14-27) continued their downward spiral last night against the Detroit Pistons (16-25). The Magic were absolutely manhandled in the paint by Greg Monroe, Jason Maxiel, and rookie Andre Drummond. The Piston big men led the way by out-rebounding the Magic 54-41. The Magic were very much in the game until the third quarter when things got out of control. At the end...
