1) Jameer Nelson fired back at Dwight Howard some for comments Howard recently made about his teams in Orlando. Nelson told Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel that Howard needs to take ownership of some of the comments he has made publicly and keep some of those thoughts behind closed doors. For whatever reason, Howard continues to take shots at his former team.
2) J.J. Redick tells Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports that part of him wishes he could have stayed in Orlando and been part of the rebuild because of the life he had built in Central Florida. But Redick admits he is enjoying being relevant again with the Bucks.
3) Jacque Vaughn opted not to use Nikola Vucevic in the fourth quarter of Monday's win over the Hornets, something Vucevic told Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel was simply not his call.
4) The Magic must wait for the Heat era to run its course, Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel writes.
5) The Heat are relaxed and playing loose in their franchise-long win streak, Shandel Richardson of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel writes.
6) The Timberwolves offered their response to the Harlem Shake craze.
