The NBA Passionista:
Although, the Orlando Magic suffered their first loss — that seems weird to say — against the Chicago Bulls, Arron Afflalo was efficient and brilliant during the game. He accumulated 28 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists, but the best part about his line was that he did that on zero turnovers. Like Ty Lawson [...]The post NBA Star Of The Night: Arron Afflalo appeared first on The NBA Mistress.

MINNEAPOLIS The drama is three months behind them in Orlando, and maybe it's helped. The Dwight Howard-less Orlando team is 2-1, and early on, it's posed a bigger challenge than most would have imagined.
Yes, Glen Davis is the focal point of their offense. Yes, they're hardly deep. But the Magic have been solid early, especially in terms of 3-point shooting; they'...
Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah regrets his decision to shoot a 3-pointer against the Orlando Magic Tuesday night, as he tried to win Big Macs for fans at the United Center. Chicago-based McDonald’s is running a promotion with the Bulls. Fans can get a free Big Mac if the Bulls score 100 points during a win at home. The Bulls won 99-93. But Noah missed his 3-ponter with 3.8...
Do you believe in the Orlando Magic?
Well, a few months ago, almost everyone believed something about this team and it’s that they would be stinking awful.
Following the blockbuster trade that sent Dwight Howard to the other side of the states, most of us felt like Orlando’s desperation to get rid of him resulted in a rash move that would end up costing them not only this season...
Sadly, there was no write-in option for the poll on the Orlando Magic official team website asking fans who'd they like to be the primary backup point guard.I would have gone with Chucky Atkins...(Courtesy of The NBA Mistress)
NBA season has started. My initial daily fantasy basketball reaction is that my games have gone about as good as the teething my young son is presently experiencing. I thought I could only imagine the pain he is feeling, but after the last two nights I think I am right there with him. I can’t seem to put together a consistent team. The stars are playing consistent, but due...
Think back to 2006. George W. Bush was the president, the Seattle SuperSonics were still in the NBA and the two biggest stars in college basketball were J.J. Redick and Adam Morrison. Oh, how the times have changed.
Redick garnered most of the national Player of the Year awards and earned the ire of opposing fans as a Duke star, while Morrison captured the country’s heart and imagination...

“Do You Believe in Magic…” If you recognize my pun as a song title, then your age is telling just as much as my decision to use it.
As I was reading and writing up various preseason team previews I was generally excited for the (then) upcoming NBA season. When it came to teams such as the Orlando Magic, however, I needed to turn to an episode of The Big Bang Theory or an Adam...
Orlando Magic (2-0) vs. Chicago Bulls (2-1)
The Magic and the Bulls are down their leading players sponsored by adidas. Well one of them is injured and working to a return. The other one is off in La-La Land.
Yet, in the first week of the season, no team's play may be more surprising than Orlando. The Magic have a scrappy team that runs on missed shots, forces...
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Luke Ridnour had 19 points and five rebounds, and Greg Stiemsma got the rout started with six straight points to end the third quarter in a 90-75 victory over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night.
Stiemsma finished with 12 points and five rebounds, and Derrick Williams added 14 points and six boards for the Timberwolves, who are 3-1 for the first time since 2001...
On a night when the nation turns its attention to the presidential election, the eyes of some NBA fans turned their attention to the Windy City. The surprising 2-0 Orlando Magic traveled to Chicago to face the 2-1 Chicago Bulls, minus Derrick Rose.
Orlando, lacking a major star on the roster has relied heavily on team work and streaky shooting. Chicago, missing Derrick Rose until...
MINNEAPOLIS -- Don't look now, but a week into the season, the Minnesota Timberwolves lead the Northwest Division -- even without injured stars Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio. Minnesota improved to 3-1 with a 90-75 victory over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday at Target Center. The Timberwolves are off to their best start since Kevin Garnett pushed them to a 6-0 record a decade...
The front offices of the Orlando Magic and Brooklyn Nets conversed plenty during the Dwight Howard saga that lasted into August, though a trade agreement never was reached.
Each new-look squad is still finding its footing without him, but Orlando hopes the recent on-court history between the clubs remains in its favor.
The Magic seek their 11th straight victory over the Nets as...
