1) Nikola Vucevic's life has been one of second chances. He survived a train crash when he was a teenager in Montenegro. Now he is getting an early second chance with the Magic, Jeff Zillgitt of USA TODAY writes.
2) The Magic said they have nothing to lose and the Heat have everything to lose as the Heat chase an NBA-record win streak, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel writes.
3) In one of the great Orlando traditions, Dwight Howard gets slimed at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards. Too bad he was not wearing any gold (green goes great with it).
4) Arron Afflalo told Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel that he suffered a slight tear in his right hamstring Friday. It is an injury that will cost Afflalo the remainder of the season.
5) Nikola Vucevic sat out shootaround this morning and it is unclear whether he has passed the concussion protocols and play tonight, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
