1) No one has been able to quite explain why Arron Afflalo took only four shots and failed to score in Tuesday's loss to Detroit, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
2) Glen Davis was frustrated by his performance in Tuesday's loss and vowed to...
BEST OF MAXIM
WHAT GIVES, ROOKIE?
Magic forward Glen Davis didn’t get his nickname from being scrawny. Before Tuesday’s game with the Pistons, “Big Baby” went searching for his pre-game peanut butter and jelly sandwich, which apparently was supposed to be made by rookie Andrew Nicholson. Davis interrupted an interview Nicholson was having with Fox Sports Detroit’s Justin White to interrogate. He was disgusted...
As part of some strange hazing ritual that is as odd as it is chock-full of necessary vitamins and minerals, it appears rookies on the Orlando Magic squad must provide veterans — especially those veterans on the larger size who go by the moniker ‘Big Baby” — a daily ration of at minimum one peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Poor Magic rookie Andrew Nicholson learned that...
There is no room for moral victories in the NBA. There are no almosts, no what ifs, no stat lines for nice tries.
There are only wins and losses.
In the first 41 games of the regular season, the Orlando Magic have lost 13 more games than theyve won.
Their 14-27 record includes some highs, such as beating both the Clippers, who have the third-best record in the league, and the...
Nikola Vucevic didn't play in the fourth quarter but still finished with a double-double (19 points and 14 rebounds).
Vucevic did his damage in just 30 minutes. Orlando coach Jacque Vaughn told Magic beat writer Josh Robbinsthat he sat the center in the fourth quarter due to matchups.
Vucevic added three blocks and an assist in the loss. He's 79-percent owned in Yahoo...
There is one positive for the Magic even through this stretch of losing 15 of 17 games. While the defense has fallen apart, the offense has picked up the slack and has played extremely well.
In the last 10 games (where Orlando has gone 2-8, mind you), the Magic have had an average offensive rating of 106.9. The team's offensive rating for the season is 103.2, good for 21st...
While everyone has been talking about the Lakers downfall, the Celtics haven’t been that much better. They are looking old and shooting horribly lately, so they are looking to bring in some help before trading deadline.
Hearing Celts, even before season-worst 7-for-32 shooting from 15+ feet in NYK loss, have ramped up their interest in Magic’s J.J. Redick
— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine...
The urgency was awoken within the Magic late in the fourth quarter. Wittling down an 11-point lead would no longer cut it with time running out. Drastic action was needed.
A J.J. Redick 4-point play to tie the game with 50 seconds left. A Glen Davis offensive rebound and pass to E'Twaun Moore for a game-re-tying floater with 20 seconds left. A key foul from Davis had the...
As we constantly remind folks on here, Glen Big Baby Davis is a different type of cat. Orlando Magic rookie Andrew Nicholson was giving Fox Sports an interview when Davis interrupted to remind him of something.
See Nicholson is a rookie, and in professional sports leagues, rookies go through some sort of hazing whether it be carrying bags, getting breakfast, or in Nicholson’s...

Mired in a lengthy losing stretch, the Orlando Magic can't be happy to see the Toronto Raptors again.
Defensively challenged Orlando tries to avoid a four-game season sweep at the hands of visiting Toronto on Thursday night.
The Magic (14-27) haven't been able to slow anyone down of late, allowing 106.2 points per game - 7.3 more than their season mark - during a 2-14 skid...
