Last night's victory over the Orlando Magic was the least bit impressive. The victory was not the night's biggest story; Thaddeus Young's injury was. Young suffered a left hamstring strain during second quarter of the Sixers 78-62 victory over the Magic. News came back, but Young did not. Today, Young went and got an MRI done on the hamstring and it revealed that he has a grade one strain in his left hamstring and will be out for at least three weeks. The Sixers, who have struggled this season, have yet to see injured big man Andrew Bynum on the court during the regular season. Now with Young out for a  good length, the Sixers will need their youth to step out and perform a lot better than they have all season.

Arron Afflalo: "Black Boy Fly"

Since the Magic acquired Arron Afflalo one word has described him: professional. Afflalo is the kind of player that has had to work for everything he has had. He ducks his head, gets his work done and talks about the team first. That has been the experience with him in a Magic uniform. His soft-spoken nature certainly does not let you into some of the trials from his past. ...

J.J. Redick latest added to Magic injury list

When it rains, it pours. Late in Saturday's game against Milwaukee, J.J. Redick appeared to be favoring his shoulder as he went to the bench late in the game. Redick had to fight off Monta Ellis for most of the night but it appeared that his foray into the paint is what knicked him this time. And it appears it got him a little bit harder than initially believed. John...

Jacque Vaughn's failures and successes at midpoint

That is why every trade rumor includes a desire for Orlando to acquire draft picks or young players on cheap contracts. This season though is also about the development of Jacque Vaughn as a head coach. Vaughn has been out of the NBA for...

Your NBA Pick for 2-6-13

LA Clippers -250 @ Orlando Magic In short: The Magic are reeling, having dropped 10 straight. They will also likely be without Jameer Nelson, JJ Redick, Glen Davis, and Aaron Afflalo. The Clips are on a bit of a slide themselves, having lost three straight. They should be able to shake that tonight, even if Blake sits as a precaution.

Magic fire blanks in second half slowdown

Jameer Nelson did whatever he wanted in the first half. Split a double team and get into the lane for a layup? Done. Run the pick and roll to get a good look for himself or others? Done. Pull-up 3-pointers? Done. Nelson, playing his first game since last Friday's loss to Boston, scored 18 points in the first half and controlled the tempo of the game. Nobody else on the...

Rockets tie Magic 3-point record

The 2009 Magic now have company at the top of the record books. Last night, the Rockets defeated the Warriors 140-109, tying an NBA record with 23 3-pointers in the game. This ties the mark the Magic set in 2009 in Sacramento when the Magic hit 23 3-pointers in a perfect storm of spacing and shooting. If there was any game that exemplified what the Stan Van Gundy-era teams were...
