  • Fansided: Orlando Magic turn to regular season confident they are ahead of last year's pace

    The Orlando Magic's preseason felt like a mixed bag.

    Undoubtedly, the team set high expectations for itself and fans bought into it after three relatively easy wins. The Magic looked crisp and sharp, picking up it seemed right where they left off from their playoff push.

    Those three wins seemed to confirm any talk anybody might have of this team potentially pushing into the top of the Eastern Conference and taking that next step to get out of the first round. The Magic swarmed on defense and moved the ball on offense, using their defense to feed a new fast-break attack.

  • Fansided: Orlando Magic leave few clues on last roster spot

    The preseason is over.

    The Orlando Magic will have their full attention on Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Practices leading up to Wednesday's game will be intense and physical. The Magic are trying to use these last moments to get themselves into final shape for the regular season.

    Monday will present the next deadline for the team. That is the roster cutdown day. Teams have to shed the extra players that are on Exhibit 10 contracts and get down to their 15 plus 2 two-way contracts.

    Orlando's roster is already pretty full.

  • Fansided: 2019-2020 NBA Season Preview: The 10 Biggest Questions for the Orlando Magic

    The Orlando Magic will open their 2020 season Wednesday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

    For the first time in seven seasons, Orlando enters the year with some major expectations. The team is not trying to breakthrough in the same way. They already proved they can make the playoffs. And, at the least, the team is expected to make the postseason again.

    Of course, nobody wants just to make the playoffs anymore. The team has ambitions to keep growing and improving. They want to compete for home-court advantage or get to the second round.

    That is a positive growth mindset.

  • Official Site of the Magic: 5 Things Learned About the Magic During Preseason

    ORLANDO - Two plays from the Orlando Magic's exhibition-season finale at the Amway Center on Thursday showed just the kind of opportunistic and athletic team that they want to be in the season ahead.

    Midway through the first quarter against the rival Miami Heat, Nikola Vucevic stripped the ball away from a driving Bam Adebayo and batted it to Evan Fournier before it could go out of bounds. Looking to immediately attack, Fournier tossed the ball ahead to a streaking D.J. Augustin for an uncontested layup.

    Later, after Fournier stepped in front of a pass intended for Kelly Olynyk, Augustin scooped up the loose ball and immediately got it ahead to Aaron Gordon, who outran Jimmy Butler and avoided a swipe attempt by Justise Winslow for another easy basket.

    ORLANDO - The Orlando Magic's popularity is growing rapidly - not just locally and nationally, but globally also.

    One country in particular where enthusiasm for the team is at an all-time high is Brazil. During the 2018-19 season, an estimated 70,000-plus Brazilians purchased tickets to Magic games at Amway Center.

    In past years, the Magic welcomed Flamengo, a professional Brazilian basketball team, to Orlando for exhibition games. In 2015, the Magic traveled to Rio de Janeiro to play Flamengo on their home court, which gave Brazilian fans the opportunity to watch the Magic in their own backyard.

  • Fansided: Orlando Magic show promise and struggle as preseason ends

    The next time the Orlando Magic take the court, it will count.

    There will be no more do-overs and no more time to experiment or figure things out on the fly. Mistakes will come with consequences. The intensity will get ratcheted up.

    Coach Steve Clifford said he wanted to see his team have more purpose of play and look a bit more like themselves as they entered their final preseason game.

    In some respects they did. In others, they did not.

    That is the nature of the preseason sometimes. Teams are still trying to get their bearings and get themselves straightened out.

  • Fansided: Orlando Magic aim to get back to looking like themselves in preseason finale

    There have been two Orlando Magic teams in the preseason.

    The first was a seemingly unified group that tore its way through opponents. They swarmed on defense and turned those opportunities into transition buckets. Their offense had movement and the ball zipped around the perimeter.

    The second has seemingly struggled to find its footing. Without Nikola Vucevic in the lineup, and nursing various injuries, the team faltered offensively. They never quite found their rhythm. Their weaknesses defensively got exposed as they struggled to reign in fast breaks and turnovers.

    As good as the Magic looked in the first three preseason games, they have looked more than off in the last two.

  • Official Site of the Magic: Magic Play With More Spirit and Energy in Preseason Finale

    ORLANDO - Several hours before tipoff while addressing the media after morning shoot-around, Orlando Magic Head Coach Steve Clifford described what his message to the team was going into Thursday's preseason finale against the Miami Heat.

    "I just told the guys I want us to look more like the Magic," he repeated to the media.

    What that meant, essentially, was that he wanted his team to look more like the squad that won 22 of their final 31 games last season and their first three of this year's preseason rather than the one that got smashed in their last two exhibition contests.

  • Orlando Pinstriped Post: Heat 107, Magic 98: Magic struggles continue in preseason finale

    Prior to the Orlando's preseason finale on Thursday, Steve Clifford said he wanted his team to look "more like the Magic."

    Unfortunately, the Magic in some ways still resembled the team he saw in the last two preseason games rather than the first two.

    The Magic, who did move the ball better than they had been, continued their ugly trend of giving possessions away as they fell to the Heat, 107-98. After starting the preseason 3-0, with all three wins on the road, the Magic finish at 3-3, with all three losses at home.

    The Magic entered averaging 16.

    Late in the third quarter, the physical play that is natural with two defensive teams boiled over.

    The bravado and swagger that a shooter like Tyler Herro has was getting on Michael Carter-Williams' nerves. And Tyler Herro was having enough of Michael Carter-Williams' veteran tricks.

    Carter-Williams started with a pump fake that sent Herro flying head over heels as Carter-Williams drove past for a floater. The two began jawing at each other to pick up the rare preseason technical foul.

    Herro smoothly drained a 3-pointer on the next possession. Then he got himself tied up with Carter-Williams after an Orlando Magic miss.

    ORLANDO - While numerous NBA coaches have marveled at the continuity that the Orlando Magic have carried over from last season to this one, standout shooting guard Terrence Ross feels the team's familiarity and comfort with one another could help his squad get off to a fast start when the regular season opens next week.

    Not only do the Magic return the same front-office leadership in President of Basketball Operations Jeff Weltman and GM John Hammond and head coach Steve Clifford, they also return 12 players from the 2018-19 squad that reached the NBA playoffs.
