Magic's irrelevancy is inevitable if they let Dwight walk after next season, signing Shaq in front office will be a mistake.
Woohoo, another win against a hot team! This Magic team is really a pleasure to watch and has exceeded my expectations. Pure team basketball. If Jacque Vaughn can get us a playoff spot, he should be a top candidate for COY.
Plus, we got a better record than the Lakers!
Vucevic = White Howard
54-51 at the 3rd vs Heat
Anyway sana matanggal na nila si Nelson and Hedo for young and productive players
Finally a win!! Glad to see them win this one after losing many close games. Really looking forward to the return of big baby.
NBA: Orlando casts Magic spell, snaps Clippers' win streak
January 13, 2013 8:26am
The Orlando Magic snapped their 10-game losing streak at the expense of the Los Angeles Clippers, upsetting one of the best teams in the West on their home court, the Staples Center in LA, 104-101, Saturday (early Sunday, PHL time).
The Magic improved to 13-23 with the win, while the Clippers stumbled to 28-9, as their 13-game home win streak ground to a halt.
The last four minutes of the game saw three deadlocks, the second of which came with the score tied at 97-all, 3:05 to play. Jamal Crawford nailed a 20-foot jumper to put LA ahead, but JJ Redick scattered five straight, including a third-chance triple to gift Orlando with the lead, 102-99.
Off a timeout, Chris Paul knocked down a jump shot to make it a one-point game. Then on the other end, Lamar Odom came up with the block on Jameer Nelson, giving the Clips a chance to take the lead. However, Jamal Crawford was whistled for an offensive foul, giving Orlando back possession. They called timeout, and got the ball to center Nikola Vucevic for the dunk, 104-101.
With 8.1 seconds to go, LA worked the ball to sixth man Jamal Crawford, but the usually reliable sniper missed his three-pointer, allowing Orlando to escape with the win.
Ironically, Orlando's lead at the end of the game, three points, was their largest of the game, while the Clippers boasted of as big as a 13-point advantage.
The game saw eight ties, but the Magic never overhauled the Clippers fully until the final moments of the match.
Arron Afflalo scored 30 big points on 10-of-19 shooting, hitting all three of his triple tries. He also added seven rebounds and seven assists. Another shooter, JJ Redick, came off the bench for 21, while center Nikola Vucevic had 18 points and 15 rebounds.
Blake Griffin also scored 30, while five other Clippers registered double-digit scoring. Chris Paul had 10 markers along with 16 dimes.
Orlando had great success with second-chance opportunities, getting 22 points that way, compared to just seven by the Clippers. - AMD, GMA News

NBA: Magic's young players take center stage in OT win versus Bucks
April 11, 2013 10:21am
Fans of the rebuilding Orlando Magic have to like the young pieces they've acquired in the post-Dwight Howard era.
Center Nikola Vucevic, acquired last summer, produced 30 points, 20 rebounds, five assists and two blocks, while former Milwaukee Buck Tobias Harris, whom they traded for prior to the deadline, added 30 points, 19 rebounds, and five assists, in a 113-103 overtime win against Milwaukee, Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.
The Magic notched their 20th win of the season after 79 outings, while the Bucks continue to back into the playoffs. They're the eighth seed out East with a 37-40 record, but are losers of seven of their last 10.
The home team led by as much as 14 points through the first three quarters, edging their foes for the majority of the initial 36 minutes. A persistent Milwaukee Bucks squad however continued to battle, resulting in seven lead changes and five ties in the fourth period.
Baskets by Monta Ellis late in regulation seemed to do the trick, establishing a 94-90 lead for the Bucks, 19.2 seconds left, but off a timeout, Tobias Harris got the put-back on a missed Maurice Harkless triple to slice their deficit in half.
A quick foul sent Ellis to the stripe, but he managed to hit just the second free throw, leaving the door open for an overtime-forcing shot, 95-92. Things went from bad to worse for the visitors when Marquis Daniels was whistled for a shooting foul on a Harris triple. That tied up the game, but he couldn't make the free throw for the win, thus forcing an extra five minutes.
In the extra session, former Orlando Magic star JJ Redick did his best to keep Milwaukee in the thick of things, scoring his side's first six, but his opponents just had more to work with, getting a seven-point buffer, 108-101, following a dunk by Harkless, 48.4 ticks left.
A quick runner by Ellis got their deficit down to five, 108-103, but off a timeout, Nikola Vucevic drew a hoop and the harm from rookie John Henson, which proved to be the nail in the coffin, especially after Milwaukee missed five shots on a single possession the next time down.
Doron Lamb, another trade deadline acquisition, added 16 off the bench, while journeyman Beno Udrih managed a double-double of 13 points and 11 assists for the Magic.
Monta Ellis dropped a double-double of 21 points and 11 assists, but was a disastrous 7-of-27 from the field. Rookie John Henson posted huge numbers off the bench, 17 points, 25 rebounds and seven blocks, while Mike Dunleavy and JJ Redick added 17 and 16 markers, respectively.
Nikola Vucevic's 30 points, 21 boards help Magic top Clippers
Nikola Vucevic scored 30 points and grabbed 21 rebounds in the Magic's 98-90 win over the Clippers.
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Nik Vucevic had 30 points -- including six free throws in the final 23 seconds -- and 21 rebounds to help the Orlando Magic hold on for a 98-90 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night.
The win was the Magic's third in a row, and gives them their first three-game streak since December of last season.
Orlando led by as many as 19 points in the third quarter, before Los Angeles took their first lead with a 25-5 run.
Blake Griffin led the Clippers with 23 points and 13 rebounds, and Chris Paul added 18 points and 10 assists. Former Magic guard J.J. Redick also chipped in 17 points.
The loss ends a three-game win streak for the Clippers, whose three-game road trip continues Thursday at Miami.
Just days after scoring their most points in nearly four years, the Clippers were sluggish and looked a little tired on both ends early as the youthful Magic pushed the pace on the way to building a 15-point halftime lead.
The Clippers led 75-72 early in the fourth when Byron Mullens and Andrew Nicholson got tangled up running down the floor. Nicholson fell to the ground during the scrum and was initially whistled for a technical foul.
It was reviewed and a technical was also awarded to Mullens.
The play seemed to re-ignite the Magic, though, who took the lead back -- 83-80 -- on a transition 3-pointer by E'Twaun Moore with 6:43 to play.
Paul tied it again at 86 with a short jumper in the lane a few trips later, and a defensive 3-seconds call on the Magic and a free throw by Redick gave back the lead to Los Angeles.
It twice changed hands on the next two trips before a fade away jumper by Arron Afflalo put the Magic back in front 90-89.
The Clippers called timeout to set up a play, but Paul missed a 3-pointer late in the shot clock which was rebounded by Orlando.
Vucevic then scored off a feed from Jameer Nelson on the other end.
Paul turned it over on the Clippers' next possession, but the Magic failed to get up a clean shot on their ensuing trip.
DeAndre Jordan was fouled and connected on 1 of 2 free throws to trim it 92-90 with 25 seconds remaining.
Vucevic was then sent to the line for the Magic, but got both of his attempts to fall to stretch the lead back to four.
The Clippers misfired again and Vucevic hit four more from the line to close it out.
The Magic came out hot, connecting on eight of their first 11 shots and getting good looks both in the paint and on the perimeter.
The Clippers stayed close, though, using quick in-bounds passes to help get some easy baskets.
Los Angeles was 0 for 8 from beyond the arc in the first half.
Last OFF Season, sila Jonas Valanciunas, Andre Drummond at DeAndre Jordan yung mag C's na pinag-uusapan na magbre-breakout yung performance this season..
