Found November 11, 2012 on Orlando Magic Daily:
Orlando was very much in a race against Brooklyn. Time was not on its side after digging a 22-point deficit in the first quarter and looking like a Friday repeat was on the way. Brook Lopez, Kris Humphries and Reggie Evans dominated the offensive glass, getting the Nets plenty of extra possessions to build the lead. The Magic were not going to lay down again. They were not going to let the bad snowball into worse and the worse become embarassing. Not on back-to-back games, not to the same team. The problem is when you start a game 12 minutes later than the other team is that you become Sisyphus rolling the boulder up the hill. When you get so close, it seems to come crashing back down. That was the Magic as they played extremely strong defense and kept the Nets within striking defense. That was the Magic as they made enough offensive plays and found the ball movement needed to manufacture points to climb back in the game. That was the Magic as they needed that one big sh...

Jameer nelson remains questionable

No offense to E'Twaun Moore. Moore has played extremely well in his four starts this season and has been able to pace the Magic with 14.6 points and 4.0 assists per game. Things with the Magic though are not the same without Jameer Nelson. Nelson strained his groin and hamstring in the season-opening win over Denver. Orlando has not seen Nelson since. While his modest nine...

Mikhail Prokhorov gets his own comic-book

Mikhail Prokhorov has shown the world the extent of his super-human talents.  From turning the fall of the U.S.S.R. into capitalist gold and moving a whole basketball franchise from New Jersey to Brooklyn in a single bound, the obscenely wealthy playboy  is worthy of some kind of Tony Stark-type notoriety. Now, you can add comic-book star to the Brooklyn Nets owner list of accomplishments...

Snap, Crackle and Rebound With Krispies

With significant court time of 34 minutes (he had previously been averaging a mere 22:30 MPG), Kris Humphries scored 14 points, 21 rebounds (6 offensive and 15 defensive) and 1 block. I think Kris will have a very productive season, both for his own team and for your fantasy teams. That’s not really an outrageous statement, but he still remains unowned in 18% of Yahoo! leagues...
