1) Arron Afflalo had a stellar game Saturday, but it almost wasn't as pain in his hip nearly knocked him out of the game in the second quarter, Brian Schmitz and Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel report. Afflalo passed Jacque Vaughn's rudimentary tests and went on to score 29 points.
2) E'Twaun Moore is still out as he continues to nurse a sprained left elbow, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Moore accompanied the team on its West Coast trip, hoewver Gustavo Ayon and Glen Davis did not.
3) This may or may not be the best time for the Magic to go out West as an eight-game losing streak has the team feeling low. But it could be the thing that brings them together against the adversity, Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel writes.
4) The Trail Blazers went 3-1 on an East Coast swing and are hoping to avoid a trap game tonight as the Magic come to town, Mike Tokito of The Oregonian writes.
5) If there is anything good about being fired, Stan Van Gundy has figured it out engaging in several charitable organizations around Seminole County, George Diaz of the Orlando Sentinel writes. Life is good.
