Wonder if there will be any spiciness when the Magic play the Pistons next year. Between Detroit’s shameless attempts to get Bey to 50 and the hard foul Moe Wagner gave late in the game—David Steele said the coaches were jawing at each other after it—seems like there’s animosity! – 9:30 PM

The @Orlando Magic have now made at least one three-point field goal in 1,200 consecutive games, dating all the way back to March 17, 2007.
