No Guts, No Glory:
We heard months and months of speculation about when and where the Orlando Magic might trade Dwight Howard. To many of us, it was a foregone conclusion that Howard’s days in a Magic jersey were numbered. But right around the All Star break, something apparently changed. Something has made the Magic believe that they can keep him long term and most importantly, something has made Dwight Howard pause in his pursuit of getting out of Orlando.

Dwight Howard lived up to his nickname “Superman” last night as he caught a sick alley-oop from Jameer Nelson. The dunk was even more important seeing that it tied the game at 90 a piece with two minutes left in regulation. The Magic would go on to win the game 99-94. Howard finished with 29 points, 18 rebounds, and 3 blocks. Not a bad day at the office.

The Suns pulled off a win against the Mavericks and not quite as surprisingly, the Magic beat the Bulls. Given Dwight Howard’s performance, and those from the Bulls, it’s pretty obvious why the Bulls couldn’t pull it out. It’s not quite as intuitive when looking at the Mavericks box score, but they did start Ian Mahinmi...
