The Orlando Magic aren’t pretending to be anything but a franchise on the mend after Dwight Howard left town before the 2012-13 season. They’re not surprising everyone like the Suns have this year, and they don’t have an all-star caliber player injured, like Rajon Rondo in Boston. But they do have heart, and their back-to-back victories over the top team in each conference this weekend shows that parity exists despite a rash of teams that are tanking the 2013-14 season.

The Orlando Magic eked out a win over the Pacers on Sunday after almost blowing a lead late against the Eastern Conference-leading Indiana Pacers. Despite the loss, Paul George was in all-star form, scoring 27 points on 10-of-19 from the field, including a sick slam over Glen Davis. But when Davis came over to shake hands after the upset, George took a pass. Read More »

The Pelicans steadily wore down the Magic on Sunday night, and Anthony Davis was the biggest reason why. Combined with Tyreke Evans‘ 13 points in the fourth quarter, the Pelicans withstood a small Magic lineup that shot better than they did. But Davis controlled the boards, and he destroyed Glen Davis late in the fourth with a rim-rocker that basically put the game away. Read More »

The first came courtesy of Mike Dunleavy, to force a second overtime. The second featured Glen Davis pulling up well beyond the arc to force a third overtime. In the end, Chicago was victorious in their second Triple OT game of the season. Read More »

We finally got it, NBA fans. We finally received our obligatory Blake Griffin dunk of the year where he embarrasses and steals the dignity of an unfortunate defender who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, and attempted to foolishly defend the athletic anomaly that is the 6-10 Griffin.

Except, this time, both frontcourt players were skying during a 20-point win over the Magic. The win, and the dunks, came despite missing leader Chris Paul, who is out 3-5 weeks with a separated shoulder. Read More »
