  • Stan Van Gundy stands by his comments about Dwight Howard’s foul trouble – Orlando Magic BasketBlog – Orlando Sentinel

    Tania Ganguli of the Orlando Sentinel reports that, when asked again today, Magic coach Stan Van Gundy didn't backpedal regarding comments he made about the officiating in his team's playoff series against the Charlotte Bobcats. Howard has only played 56 minutes through two games due to foul trouble. From today's remarks:

    I’m very rarely critical," Van Gundy said. "I said last night exactly what I believe. I said I don’t know if those are fouls are not. I don’t know. Maybe they’re fouls. My only point is there’s none of them where you’re sitting there with those first four going, ‘Oh, yeah, it’s clearly a foul.’ I’m just saying that I don’t see any of the other so-called stars in the league sitting down consistently or getting that many of the marginal calls against them.

  • Twitter / Adrian Wojnarowski: Assistants to watch in Hor ...

    Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports, via Twitter, that Magic assistant coach Steve Clifford could become a candidate to fill the New Orleans Hornets' head-coaching vacancy. Clifford joined Van Gundy's staff a few weeks after Orlando hired Van Gundy in 2007. Prior to coming aboard with Orlando, he was an assistant for the Houston Rockets for four years and a member of the New York Knicks for three.
