Evan Fournier urging more toughness after Magic's loss to Jazz

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Evan Fournier's week began with him spitting up blood after a stray elbow by Tyler Hansbrough of the Toronto Raptors caught him in the lip. It ended Friday night with him spitting mad over the way the Orlando Magic came out to play against the Utah Jazz.

Magic Musings: Return home results in uneven performance

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Orlando Magic began a lengthy late December homestand a year ago by losing to the Utah Jazz, not exactly one of the upper echelon teams in the NBA's Western Conference. History repeated itself Friday night as the Jazz dominated the paint early on and came away with a 101-94 victory. The Jazz never trailed over the final three quarters and led by as many 17 points...

Evan Fournier’s Face Gets Rearranged By Tyler Hansbrough’s Elbow

Evan Fournier found himself on the wrong end of Tyler Hansborough’s elbow during Monday night’s Magic-Pacers game.

Evan Fournier Bloodied After Taking A Tyler Hansbrough Elbow to Face

It’s easy to hate the Toronto Raptors’ Tyler Hansbrough. He’s really not that talented but provides value to his team because of his ruffian style of play (cheap shots, pounding the glass, acting as an instigator of sorts, throwing elbows, etc.). Unfortunately for Orlando Magic guard Evan Fournier, he was on the receiving end of one of those erratic Psycho T elbows Monday...
