1) Today begins a rare stretch in the NBA schedule (although not this year). Today's game in New York begins a back-to-back-to-back which will take Orlando from New York home to take on Charlotte and San Antonio. Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports the Magic will not use this stretch as an excuse.
2) Jason Richardson will miss today's game with a bone bruise in his knee. The injury was a product of him bumping knees, but the piling up of games in a short time does not help either. Richardson said the schedule is negatively affecting the product on the floor, reports Brian Schmi...

Nikoloz Tskitishvili is a former NBA 7 foot bust from Georgia (not the one next to Alabama). At the age ripe age of 18 Tskitishvili played professionally for Benetton Treviso in Italy. Showing more promise than the Jonas Brothers’ rings, he averaged 6.2 ppg in just 12 mpg. He was young, showed unreal potential, and the NBA scouts were banking on his results. The dude was supposed...
I guarantee when the season started, the New York Knicks didn’t think they’d be 6-6 after 12 games. After acquiring Tyson Chandler in the offseason to go along with Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire, the Knicks looked like they could contend for one of the top spots in the East.
Now, after a disappointing .500 start to the season, the Knicks are hoping Baron Davis can get...
Take that Miami. This would be the new Big Three. Howard apparently likes the idea — almost as much as Clippers fans. No matter how unlikely it is in reality. Howard has added the Clippers to the list of teams he would sign an extension with, reports Chris Sheridan at Sheridan Hoops. The Clips are…
With all the trade talk flying around about where Dwight Howard is going to end up, it seems highly unlikely that the Orlando Magic big man will stick around southern Florida. One of the teams Howard is asking to be traded to is the New Jersey Nets, who will be the Brooklyn Nets soon enough, but someone who knows a thing or two about playing under the bright lights of the Big Apple...
I bet, when you heard that Dwight Howard asked for a trade from Orlando to the Lakers, Mavericks, or Nets, you thought he was a front-runner. (OK, the Nets aren't so "front," but they do offer nearly unlimited access to Jay-Z and Howard could live in Manhattan.) You thought Dwight Howard only wanted what was hot. You thought Dwight...
Ryan Anderson does not create his own shot. He is the first to admit that. He will say that after every game he scores 20 or more points in. Somehow though, teams tend to leave him alone beyond the arc. By the end of Orlando's 102-93 win over New York at Madison Square Garden, you can audibly hear the groans of another Anderson 3-pointer leaving his hands and likely going in...

The Knicks aren’t very good with or without Carmelo Anthony right now.
Anthony made a surprising return Monday from his knee and ankle sprains, posted a terrific first half but petered out in the final minutes of the fourth quarter.
The Knicks offense went stone cold late and Orlando...

Not too long ago, there was talk of Dwight Howard and Chris Paul playing together in Los Angeles. Of course, no one at the time pictured the two superstars both donning LA Clipper uniforms.
According to SheridanHoops, Dwight has added the Clippers to his list of teams he wouldn’t mind the Orlando Magic trading him to:
“He’s been watching...
Dwight Howard had 25 points and 17 rebounds to lead the Orlando Magic past the Charlotte Bobcats 96-89 Tuesday night for their fifth straight win.
Ryan Anderson scored a career-high 30 points, extending his NBA lead with seven 3-pointers, and the Orlando Magic beat the New York Knicks 102-93 on Monday to complete a perfect four-game road trip. Taking advantage of extra space as the Knicks focused on Dwight Howard, Anderson went 7 of 13 behind the arc and is now 40 of 93 for the season.
