Magic hand Celts season's most instructive game / Green Stats

It wasn't that the Celtics didn't play hard. They didn't play hard enough, and some of the Green didn't bring the necessary focus and aggression at all — allowing Orlando to outplay Boston on both sides of the court. The Magic won every quarter. Final score: 110-91.Why "instructive"? Because this was a winnable game against a middle-of-the-pack team; the reasons the Celts lost...

WATCH: Postgame Interviews After Magic Improve to 9-8

AP Photo/Scott Audette The Orlando Magic can enjoy being over .500 for now, but everyone knows that can evaporate pretty quickly with the 5-game Western Conference road trip approaching. Angry Victor Oladipo is still a thing, and that’s more than fine with me based on his on-court output. It’s okay to be cautiously optimistic though as this team blew out another East playoff...

Green Envy: What Magic fans said, 11/29

Summary:The Boston Celtics fell to the Orlando Magic 110-91 tonight in the first game of the team's five-game road trip. After a dominant, blowout victory over the Washington Wizards last Friday, the C's came out flat in a game that they should have won.

Evan Fournier's Numbers Are Legit

Evan Fournier took the ball from his teammate Jason Smith's hands, running behind and around him, trying to shake a trailing Zach LaVine. Upon handing the ball off, Smith stepped into LaVine's path, attempting to cut him off from chasing Fournier to the right sideline. However, in his haste to pop out for an open shot behind the arc, Smith didn't set a sound enough screen, allowing...

ORLANDO -- While arriving in Orlando for a Disney vacation is plenty to be pumped about, it's even better when NBA players are at the airport to greet you and wish you a great stay in The City Beautiful.

That (Not So) Magic Feeling

Evaluating Orlando’s Decent Start Based on Skiles’ 91, 43, 35

If you’re not impressed by the 5-6 win-loss record obtained by your Orlando Magic so far this 2015-2016 campaign, let’s not forget the prior three seasons. If you currently look at the East standings, Orlando wouldn’t have a playoff spot today. But Scott Skiles in a short period of time has this team on track for a 41-41 record. At least, based on my predictions. I know...

Wings for days: The four-out revolution hits Orlando

When it comes to gambling on the NBA, one surefire way of making money is finding a sleeper team very early in the season and riding them until public perception catches up.
