As expected, Jameer Nelson broke the Magic's all-time assist mark last night, recording his second of his 12 assist last night on a bounce pass to Andrew Nicholson which he emphatically finished at the rim. {youtube}CfCNCLEY9Ro{/youtube} Congrats to Jameer Nelson on that fantastic accomplishment! John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com, among others, spoke to Nelson before Monday's game about the prospect of gaining this accomplishment. Nelson was certainly in a reflective mood about it: I’m not a guy for individual accolades, but when you get a little older you reflect on those things, realize what you did and tell those stories to your kids. My son is getting to be 11 years old and sometimes he can’t even believe some of the things that I did in college. But hopefully he’ll watch (ESPN’s) SportsCenter (on Tuesday) morning. Nelson is not the only one thinking about his place. With Nelson now firmly atop one of the Magic's all-time lists (and nearing a few ot...

Jameer Nelson nears assist record

Jameer Nelson has been a stalwart in the Magic lineup for eight years. Longevity gets you close to all kinds of records. Tonight, Nelson will likely reach one of these milestones passing one of the Magic's all-time great point guards. Thanks to eight assists Saturday against New York, Nelson moved one assist away from tying Scott Skiles' franchise record of 2,776...

Magic running on fumes, falling to Blazers

Orlando could not get stops and could not be stopped. That was the kind of game it was at the Rose Garden. Several players took turns just carrying the Magic offense and getting the ball moving. Arron Afflalo had his way in the first quarter. Josh McRoberts and J.J. Redick had it going in the second quarter. Redick got it going in the fourth again. Then Jameer Nelson closed things...

Would Magic, fans take Dwight back?

This is a story or an idea that will not seem to go away. Like a jilted girlfriend, there are still some feelings. And the idea of a reunion just will not die. So when Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel writes: In other words, it's easy for the Magic to say they won't pursue Dwight now when they know they don't have a snowball's chance in Haiti of getting...

Magic head out West again

At the beginning of December, the Magic were on a three-game losing streak and asking some of the same questions they are asking now. Will things fall apart? Will the team come together or fold on the rigors of the road? During that five-game road trip, Jacque Vaughn would learn more about his team. When the Magic came out all guns blazing against the Lakers and found themselves...

Magic looking to avoid prolonged losing streak

Perhaps it is too late to avoid a "long" losing streak seeing as the Magic's current nine-game skid is the longest for the franchise since 2004, but this team wants to avoid falling further behind. We can go through the stats again, but it probably is not really necessary. Except for one or two games in this streak, Orlando has been in every game and has been unable...

A foul taste in thin air

The Magic know a little bit about hard work. Everyone can see Orlando fighting and scrapping in every game. Kenneth Faried's level of effort is just a little bit more some times. On a free throw in a tie game, Faried found his way around Andrew Nicholson and got to the ball before Nicholson could. The two fought the ball to the ground, but Faried got the timeout. Out...

Nuggets, Magic both cry foul in Denver win over Orlando

DENVER -- Orlando has lost heartbreakers, let wins slip away and has been blown out during its 10-game losing streak. Wednesday's game might have topped them all. The Magic saw another fourth-quarter lead slip away in a 108-105 loss to Denver, but after the game it was the head-shaking foul differential that had them baffled. The Magic nearly overcame 19 points and 19 rebounds...

Magic-Nuggets Preview

Arron Afflalo is returning to Denver mired in the longest losing streak of his career. His Orlando Magic have dropped nine straight as they try for a rare road win over the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night. Afflalo was Denver's second-leading scorer last season with 15.2 points per game before he was dealt to Orlando (12-22) over the summer as part of the Dwight Howard multi...

Checking in on Maurice Harkless' growth

It is hard to gauge Maurice Harkless these days. Statistics do not quite do it. He has started 20 games, a streak that ended a few weeks ago, and is scoring only 3.8 points per game, shooting 46.5 percent from the floor. Again, those do not quite capture Harkless' play. For the most part on offense, Harkless is asked to stand in the corner and wait for the ball or wait...
