It is a feeling he could get used to, Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel writes. 2) Harkless may be the one getting the starts, but it is Andrew Nicholson who appears to be the furthest along among the rookies and has the coach's confidence. 3) C.J. Miles has turned his season around and is playing superb this year. The reason? Would you believe it is because he got a haircut? (h/t Mary Schmitt Boyer of The Cleveland Plain Dealer). 4) Kyrie Irving will not be playing tonight, but the Magic face an interesting run of elite starting point guards starting Sunday against Rajon Rondo and the Celtics, Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel writes. 5) The Magic dished out more than good basketball this holiday weekend. The Magic spent their Thanksgiving, as they have for the last 20 years, serving a Thanksgiving breakfast the Coalition for the Homeless (h/t Orlando Sentinel).
