1) Dwight Howard spoke to the media after shootaround this morning and said the trade decision is weighing very heavily on him, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
2) J.J. Redick has become one of the most consistent players on the Magic and it is largely becuase of the work he has put in, David Steele of Fox Sports Florida writes.
3) A problem for the Magic is getting defensive consistency and that was no more evident than in Thursday's loss, writes Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel.
4) Dwight Howard is sticking to the line he delivered during All-Star Weekend: this Magic team has not yet reached its potential yet is still in the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff race.
5) Tell me if you have heard this one before: the Bucks lost an 11-point lead and lost in the fourth quarter to the Hawks. Offense stagnation was the culprit once again for the Bucks on the road, even though Brandon Jennings had 34 points.
6) Dan Favale of The Hoop Doctors writes on the consequences of the Magic's inaction with Dwight Howard.
