A LOOK AT THE CURRENT 2020 PLAYOFF PICTURE

It is now only 40 days to the playoffs starting so I thought we’d take a quick & fairly simplistic look at the standings across the NBA. The Race Is On! As I reference regularly about the Magic we are firmly invested in the race for 7th or 8th seeding with the Brooklyn Nets in the East. With the gap between ourselves in 8th & those in pursuit it is becoming increasingly difficult to see us being caught. That is not based on an arrogance, just a realism when we consider the position of our closest chasing team, the Washington…

GAME DAY 64 – ORLANDO MAGIC AT HOUSTON ROCKETS

It’s game day Magic Fans & we are in Houston, Texas to take on the Rockets in the 3 matchup of a 4 game road trip. This is the second & final time that we take on the Rockets this season. For us in the U.K. this is a two week period where the tip times are a little more friendly. The USA had their “Spring Forward” on the clocks over night so until we start British Summer Time on March 29th the time difference sees us only 4 hours ahead. The game therefore has much friendlier U.K. tip time…

MAGIC WIN! GO MAGIC!

THE MAGIC TAKE DOWN THE NETS IN A BRILLIANT SECOND HALF COMEBACK WIN

ORLANDO MAGIC 115 - 113 BROOKLYN NETS What a win that was! Our biggest comeback win of the season & in such an important game. Another Poor Start A tale of two halves as we went in 13 down at the half on the back of a dismal 41 pts scored, including going only 3 of 18 on 3 point shot. It began to feel like we were watching another Magic performance that has frustrated us so much through the season. Early into the 3rd & it got worse as we went 19 pts down. The Turning Point But that…
