Magic Headlines

In our game recap, we write how the Magic’s comeback against the Bulls was spoiled by a costly in-bounds turnover.

After missing a potential game-winning shot, Mario Hezonja put the blame on himself, writes Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.

Nikola Vucevic has a target return date of February 22, Robbins writes.

After watching video of his missed shot, Mario Hezonja said, “I almost slammed that laptop off the floor,” writes John Denton of

Denton also writes of Khem Birch’s memories of playing in the McDonald’s All-American game in Chicago, D.J. Augustin’s 700th career game; and the Magic’s point guard play.

Mario Hezonja shined offensively in the fourth but struggled defesively throughout, earning a ‘B+’ for his performance in the nightly grades column by Philip Rossman-Reich of Orlando Magic Daily.

Lauri Markkanen feasted down low on Mario Hezonja and the Magic early on while helping the Bulls establish a lead, writes Blog a Bull in their game recap.

Elfrid Payton was one point shy of his career-high on Monday against the Warriors, writes Bright Side of the Sun.

Payton’s time in Phoenix is a tryout, not a rental, says Amin Elhassan of ESPN.
