Mavericks Hand Magic 8th Consecutive Defeat

AP Photo/John Raoux The Orlando Magic were down by as many as 27 points Saturday night. An interesting 4th quarter performance wasn’t enough to pull out a victory against Dallas, falling 108-93. Monta Ellis had it all, and then some. 25 points and 13 assists for Ellis who had to handle point guard duties with Rajon Rondo getting hurt early. Tyson Chandler was a terror in the paint...

Answers elusive for Magic after surprisingly lopsided loss to Bucks

ORLANDO, Fla. -- In their most recent home game, the Orlando Magic had reason to feel they let a victory slip away. There was no such sense of frustration Thursday night. Not after the Milwaukee Bucks shot 55.9 percent from the floor through three quarters and led by as many as 29 points on their way to handing the Magic a season-high seventh loss in a row. The 115-100 defeat was...

Road reaction: Bucks 115, Magic 100

For the first time since 2004, the Milwaukee Bucks will fly home from Orlando with a victory. With seven of its 10 available players scoring in double figures, Milwaukee snapped its 17-game losing streak against the Magic in Orlando with a 115-100 victory at Amway Center. Milwaukee last won in Orlando on Dec. 29, 2004. The Magic have since built a new arena, while the Bucks are on...

Magic Musings: Orlando's latest loss features familiar shortcomings

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Orlando Magic went into Thursday night not having lost at home to the Milwaukee Bucks since Dec. 29, 2004, a winning streak covering 17 games. That ended with a resounding thud as the Bucks, one of the NBA's most surprising teams this season, led from start to finish in a 115-100 win over the Magic, who dropped their seventh game in a row. More than a smattering...

Milwaukee Manhandles Magic as Orlando Loses 7th Straight

AP Photo/John Raoux The Orlando Magic are now 5-16 at Amway Center after falling to the Milwaukee Bucks 115-100. It wasn’t that close. Bucks led from start to finish and Orlando players appear to have quit on the season. It’s sad with all that talent on the court. Magic lost the turnover battled 24-15. Milwaukee had a 29-14 assists advantage. Bucks knew how to share the ball...

Orlando Magic: Positives In A Losing Season

(Source: Sam Greenwood/Getty Images North America) By Christopher Kline: Staff Writer/HoopStuff… The Orlando Magic have established themselves as arguably the most inconsistent team this season. One week, they will conquer the likes of Chicago in dominating fashion, only to fall to a subpar Knicks sqaud days later. However, Orlando’s rapidly paced offensive attack led by a...

Statistically, Nikola Vucevic Undoubtedly is an All-Star

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images I already made an argument about why Orlando Magic center Nikola Vucevic deserves to be selected for his first career NBA All-Star Game. That was on January 1st of this young 2015 calendar year. Since then, the Montenegrin has raised his scoring average and efficiency even more. Through 47 games, Vucevic is averaging 19.5 ppg and 11...

Will Magic's Vucevic be selected as an Eastern Conference All-Star reserve?

From Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony this year to Tracy McGrady during his final season with the Orlando Magic, players have been chosen to take part in the NBA All-Star Game despite being on teams well below the .500 mark. But those cases have almost exclusively involved established stars who were voted in by fans as starters rather than selected by coaches as reserves. The situation...

Magic Musings: Defense an issue as Orlando's losing skid continues

Two weeks after appearing to take on a whole new look offensively, the Orlando Magic may finally be paying more than lip service to defense. While their 103-94 loss Monday night at Memphis marked the 10th game in a row in which they gave up more than 100 points, the Magic could be encouraged by how well they clamped down after the Grizzlies shot almost 60 percent from the floor in...

Magic feeling of weight of letting victory slip away against visiting Pacers

ORLANDO, Fla. -- For a team that hasn't squandered a lead of larger than 12 points in any of their 32 defeats this season, the Orlando Magic had every reason Sunday night to feel as if they let a sure victory slip from their collective grasp. They were at home, facing a team mired in a seven-game losing streak and wrapping up a five-game road trip in the Indiana Pacers. And even...

Magic Musings: Losing streak grows to 5 after 4th-quarter frustrations

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Up by nine points with eight minutes remaining Sunday night, the Orlando Magic appeared to be on the verge of snapping a four-game losing streak and winning for only the third time this month. Instead, the Indiana Pacers were the team that supplied the finishing kick as they broke a lengthy slide of their own in coming away with a 106-99 victory. The Magic shot 52...

Magic Cough Up 4th Quarter Lead, Lose to Indiana

AP Photo/Phelan M. Ebenhack Just another frustrating Amway Center loss for the Orlando Magic who are now 5-15 at home after a 106-99 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Sunday night. Damjan Rudez scored 16 of his career-high 18 points in the fourth period to lead the Pacers to victory. Stunning. Orlando lost that fourth period 31-17 after they held a comfortable advantage entering the...

Evaluating the Current State of the Orlando Magic

Led by Tobias Harris and Nikola Vucevic, the Orlando Magic are steadily moving in the right direction. In 2012, the Orlando Magic were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs for the second consecutive season. Despite qualifying for the postseason six years in a row (2007-12), the team made just one NBA Finals appearance, a 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. To make matters...

Magic Musings: Vucevic's big night not enough in loss to Knicks

Despite another huge game from Nikola Vucevic, the Orlando Magic became the latest team Friday night to fall to the suddenly resurgent New York Knicks. Vucevic tied his career high with 34 points and also pulled down 18 rebounds, but that wasn't enough to prevent the Magic's fourth loss in a row and 10th in their last 12 games. The Knicks, who had become the butt of jokes in managing...

Steven Adams gets shoved by Magic’ player (Video)

Oklahoma City Thunder’ center, Steven Adams, has a bit of a reputation, when it comes to getting under the skin of opposing players. The wrath of Adam’s annoying ways even cost Zach Randolph a pivitol game seven against the Thunder last season. A game and series the Grizzlies ultimately lost. Adams is a tough, physical defender, and his “extra effort” often rubs opposing...

Payton makes his mark in career-best offensive showing against Memphis

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Memphis Grizzles appeared willing Friday night to take their chances on letting Elfrid Payton get more shots up than usual if it meant holding Nikola Vucevic somewhat in check. While that strategy worked to an extent, it also gave the Orlando Magic and their fans reason to be delighted with the continued progress of the rookie point guard who came into the NBA...

ORLANDO, Fla. -- To longtime followers of the Orlando Magic, Nik and Vic ought to roll off the tongue as easily as Shaq and Penny once did. The roll that this center-guard combination has been on the past three games should be something worth talking about as well.

Magic midseason review: In search of offensive identity

ORLANDO, Fla. -- There's an inherent risk that comes with placing a heavy emphasis on the result of one contest in an 82-game NBA regular season.

But the way in which the Orlando Magic reached the halfway point Monday night -- putting up 121 points while shooting almost 60 percent...
