Magic say Monday is "Spirit Day" after win against Lakers

Glen Davis - Harry How

How seriously is Orlando taking its win against Dwight Howard and the Lakers on Sunday? The Magic are saying it's Spirit Day in Orlando.

The Orlando Magic's emphatic defeat of the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night--they scored 40 points in the fourth to defeat Dwight Howard and company, 113-103--counts for just one win in the standings, but the team and its fans aren't treating it like that. Having endured the so-called Dwightmare for one season and over the summer as Howard wavered in his commitment to Orlando, Sunday's win felt like something more. And the team recognizes as much. On Monday morning, the Magic proclaimed it "Spirit Day" in Orlando:


I suppose one could remain skeptical about this approach to the victory. "Act like you've been there before," they might say. But Orlando hasn't been there before: it's their first win against Howard since he left the Magic, and Sunday's result galvanized the team and its fans.
