Magic Tweet of the Day
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.
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.
