Orlando Magic guard Ish Smith ran right through the Los Angeles Clippers during the second quarter of Saturday's game at the Staples Center, throwing down a monster one-handed jam and drawing the foul. Unfortunately, Smith followed up his slam dunk with an embarrassing air ball on the free throw, prompting laughter from his Magic teammates on the bench.
To Smith's defense, he did land pretty hard on his rear end after the hard foul by Eric Bledsoe.

J.J. Redick is having a career-year for the Magic.
Glen Davis has been in the background for the Magic since spraining his shoulder at the end of the Magic's Dec. 19 win over the Wizards. Orlando has gone 1-10 in that time and the team is hungry to have its emotional leader and linchipin back.
It appears Davis is close to making his return. Although when his return might happen is up to Jacque Vaughn and Vaughn has said with...
J.J. Redick was constant movement, and Matt Barnes was visibly tired chasing him around. Somehow the Magic had to know that would play a role in deciding this one.
