Orlando Magic Daily:
Beno Udrih and Nate Robinson were trading body blows as the Magic and Bulls played Friday night. There was no knockout punch to deliver. Just a major whiff from the Magic and Udrih.
Orlando had the final possession, down by a point and got the ball to the guy they wanted. That would be the veteran point guard from Slovenia who scored 18 of his 27 points in the third quarter, willing the Magic back from a deficit and hitting everything within his sights.
Jimmy Butler's length and athelticism helped close that spout in the fourth quarter, but Udrih had one more chance to create. He got the inbound and ran a pick and roll with Nikola Vucevic and dribbled left toward the paint. He spun into traffic and lost his footing. It is arguable whether he was fouled.
Udrih tried to throw up a shot to get the call -- no whistle -- and the Bulls collected the rebound. Chicago was able to run out the clock as Orlando tried fruitlessly to foul, and a tired Chicago team held on for an ...

The Orlando Magic have a 19-57 record, one win up on the Charlotte Bobcats for the worst record overall in the league. While it's not the most attractive record, very few (if any) will say the Magic are heading in the wrong direction in the long term. Jacque Vaughn has been praised by his peers this season and his mentor is no exception.
After the San Antonio Spurs defeated...
It is a common refrain from me, from Jacque Vaughn and from everyone else. This is a year for young players to grow and learn. This is a year to make mistakes and create habits.
The habit part is probably the most important for this young squad. The one thing the Magic are guarding against in this period of losing is complacency or acceptance of losing. This is perhaps some of...

The only shots Nate Robinson fears are the kind he takes at the doctor's office.
He doesn't like needles.
He welcomes crunch time.
