Glen Davis is off to a hot start in his second full season with the Orlando Magic. The power forward is averaging nearly 15 points and 9 rebounds per game, and new Orlando head coach Jacque Vaughn has even named him a co-captain along with point guard Jameer Nelson. Davis never really seemed to fulfill his potential with the Boston Celtics, and he recently spoke about the difference in coaching styles between Vaughn and Doc Rivers. “Different guys,” Big Baby told the Boston Herald before the Magic took on the Celtics. “Doc is more of a military-minded kind of guy, and Jacque is more of a Gandhi kind of guy. Soft but powerful. “Doc’s more get the job done, and Jacque Vaughn is more the kind of guy who will ask you, Would you feel comfortable getting the job done? I think that’s different with players. But in my system, I think I just feel better functioning in Jacque’s system. Doc wasn’t the kind of guy to pat you on your back and say, good job, man. He’s more like, OK, move on. In a...

Magic schedule gets serious

The Magic entered this week's five-game homestand knowing it was an opportunity to set their record straight. The next three weeks really will probably set the Magic toward whatever type of season they will have -- a battle for ping pong balls and some measure of respect at the bottom or a potential surprise Playoff fight. With Detroit, Cleveland, Boston, San Antonio and...

Celtics work their magic for a 116 to 110 win over Orlando

"I'm coming for you Magic Johnson" The Celtics defeated the Magic 116 to 110, in a game that the Celtics looked to be in control of early with a 12 point lead in the first half. The second half was however a different story when the Magic worked their magic from beyond the arc as Arron Afflalo, JJ Redick and Jameer Nelson all had threes leading to a 34 point third...

Shootaround: Happy Homecomings

Boston Celtics (7-6) vs. Orlando Magic (5-7) 6 p.m. Glen Davis has been looking forward to this game for a while now. Not only are the Magic in the midst of a five-game home stand, one that could very well set their season in one direction or another. OK, maybe most people expect it to go south, but the Magic have to play the games and have a chance to get into the Playoff picture...

Jameer Nelson Snaps Old Man Paul Pierce’s Ankles Clean Off

Jameer Nelson pulled off one of the most simple non-crossovers I have seen in quite sometime, and it sent Paul Pierce tumbling to the ground. Check out how Pierce’s legs just buckled underneath him as Jameer created more than space. Paul was forced to pick up his jock-strap following the embarrassment. And yes, Jameer missed the shot.

Jameer Nelson Teaches Paul Pierce How To Sit Down

Fantastic crossover by the one time all star point guard, Jameer Nelson.  Unfortunately, you need to sink the basket or at least take the ball to the hole if you are going to leave your defender looking like he just had his leg chopped off by a zombie.  Or a fat person falling and not getting up. In related news, the Orlando Magic almost beat the Celtics in this game.  That...

Here’s Jameer Nelson hitting Paul Pierce with a crossover that sends him to the ground

Gotta move those feet, Paul. The post Here’s Jameer Nelson hitting Paul Pierce with a crossover that...

Comments from the Other Side - Magic 11/26

Surprised to see so much Big Baby hate.  I've felt that the Celtics got the best of the deal but I though Baby was doing pretty well there.  Guess not.   A lot of ref complaints but I thought the refs missed stuff on both sides but didn't favor either.  Of course, what would a CFTOS be without a Paul Pierce wheelchair reference?  My favorite comments are in bold. ...

Recap: Celtics give Doc, fans gray hair, but get W in Orlando

The Celtics hold on in Orlando tonight to beat the Magic 116-110 in OT. Looked like the Celtics would continue their stellar play from Friday night early, but a nightmare 3rd quarter where Boston’s defense vanished and Orlando shot the lights out made this a nail biter. The Green: Rondo came out of the gate on a mission. He had 4 assists in the first 4 minutes of the game, 9 at...
