Magic handed big loss but get lift from return of rookie Aaron Gordon

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Talk about getting thrown into the fire.

Thunder-Magic Postgame Interviews: Jacque Vaughn Wants More Old School “Nastiness”

AP Photo/John Raoux Orlando Magic Head Coach Jacque Vaughn didn’t question his team’s effort against the Thunder. That wasn’t the issue. A lack of “nastiness”, and “aggression”, and “hostility” were.

WATCH: Nikola Vucevic Put on a Tip Drill in Portland

Photo by Sam Forencich/NBAE via Getty Images I think Orlando Magic Head Coach Jacque Vaughn would have done two things differently after Saturday night’s loss in Portland: 1. Play Devyn Marble over Ben Gordon in crunch time 2.

Magic get much-needed win, but not without some drama

ORLANDO, Fla. -- To the Orlando Magic, all was well that ended somewhat less than well Tuesday night.

And it appeared for a moment as if Jameer Nelson's first regular-season game against...
