Player jumps off bench mid-play to guard Celtics player

Magic guard Jason Richardson noticed that his team only had four players on the floor at one point during Monday night’s game, so he jumped off the bench mid-play and guarded Celtics center Greg Stiemsma. Richardson knocked the ball out of Stiemsa’s hands, but it went out of bounds. The refs apparently never picked up on what happened. Here’s the video: ...

Jason Richardson can count to 5, Refs Can Not

Quick, and technical foul, thinking by Orlando Magic guard Jason Richardson tonight against the Boston Celtics. Realizing while he was in the bench area that his team only had four players on the court playing D, he decided to just hop up and join the action to make sure the Celtics did not get an easy lay-up from the addition mistake by the Magic. I can only think David...

Avery Bradley's Defense Pisses Jameer Nelson Off

In last night's 87-56 victory over Orlando, Avery Bradley's constant pressure on defense inspired the rest of the Celtics to turn in one of the team's best defensive performances this season. However, Avery revealed in a post-game interview that his full-court pressure annoyed Magic point guard Jameer Nelson so badly that Nelson actually asked Bradley to ease up. From...

Jason Richardson Comes Off The Bench To Play Defense In The Middle Of A Play

Monday night during the Celtics vs. Magic game, Jason Richardson displayed a special type of defense. The Magic shooting guard was on the bench when he realized that the Magic only had 4 players on the floor. Richardson jumped onto the court, disrupted the play and returned to the bench after the whistle. The refs [...]

Jameer Nelson Admits That Dwight Howard's Talk Of Other PG's Has Affected Him

When NBA'ers offer cliche' filled soundbyte packages during postgame pressers or whatever we have the tendency to respond with a collective eye roll. It's boring, and sounds like that teacher Charlie Brown had after a while. So many times we can almost recite a response before a particular player even starts talking. We left it out on the floor today. We needed to execute...

Jameer Nelson Blames Dwight Howard Saga for Struggles

Both Jameer Nelson and Orlando Magic GM Otis Smith placed some of the blame for Nelson’s struggles this season on Dwight Howard’s massive shoulders, which doesn’t seem like the most brilliant of tactics. Per the Orlando Sentinel: “Jameer Nelson admitted that Dwight Howard’s mention of playing with other point guards affected him. A slumping Nelson said Howard’s talking...

Jason Richardson comes off the bench during live action (Video)

The Orlando Magic set a new franchise low in points scored in their 87 to 56 blowout loss to the Boston Celtics. In this game the Magic forgot that you need 5 players on the court at all times. The Magic players and their coaches must have tuned out of this game very early, because after a timeout on the court the Magic only sent 4 players on the court. The Celtics passed...

Video: Jason Richardson leaps off the bench to play defense

Last Thursday, we noted a bizarre play in which Orlando Magic wing Quentin Richardson, on the bench at the time, screamed in Danny Green's ear during a three-pointer. It was a weird way to play defense, both in terms of standards of sportsmanship and general NBA player comportment. Nevertheless, a guy has to do what he can to help his team win, and sometimes that involves playing...

Jason Richardson Entered A Game In The Middle Of A Play Last Night And Got Away With It

The Magic scored just 56 points and made just 16 field goals in their blowout loss to the Celtics, who were without Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen. But that might not have been the worst of it for Orlando: At one point here in the third quarter, they had just four players on the court during a defensive possession, at least until Jason Richardson figured...

NBA stars urge young fans to be healthy, active

Blake Griffin, Derrick Rose and Carmelo Anthony are among the NBA stars urging young fans to live active lifestyles during the NBA's annual FIT ''live healthy'' week.

Dwight Howard’s pining for point guard help is kind of crushing Jameer Nelson’s soul

Imagine you’re working on a project with a guy. Your careers depend on it. Now, your partner is an exceptional talent, he’s one of the best guys in the business at what you do. But he needs a complimentary guy with your specific skills. If things go well, you’re looking at being the best in…

Recap: High energy Celtics ***** slap the Magic

What the hell just happened? The Celtics unleashed a defensive buzz saw tonight on the Orlando Magic. The final score: 87-56. A Celtics team missing FIVE rotation players beat down the 11-win Magic. A Celtics team on the second night of back-to-back games throttled a team that hadn't played in two days. This was supposed to be the lock of all locks. Not in our house! Kevin...

Dwight Howard's Best Chance to Win Is With Orlando Magic

Dwight Howard is apparently hurting Jameer Nelson's feelings. What a meanie. Orlando Magic general manager Otis Smith has been through a lot with the Howard saga over the past two seasons, and on Friday he said that the issue has finally trickled down from the front office to the players. The distractions of Howard's impending free agency and rumblings of his desire to play...

Taking Stock: Celtics - Magic

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Avery Bradley:  Avery Bradley was so close to Jameer Nelson all night long that I think they're now legally married in Massachusetts.  His defense changed the entire game, which is good, because Avery's offense is still not good.  I&...
