1) Ryan Anderson returns to Orlando and is seeing a much different franchise in the familiar place and uniforms, Chris Tommasson of Fox Sports Florida writes. Anderson told Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel that it is different going to the vistior's locker room. Anderson explained to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel that the Magic actually did not really pursue Anderson as new management was unsure of his place in the new Magic.
2) Mason Ginsberg of Hornets 24/7 tries to predict what the Hornets will look like once they get Eric Gordon back (which will not be tonight).
3) Jacque Vaughn is hoping the Magic keep their cool and limit technical fouls. J.J. Redick's technical foul in the second half on Sunday proved costly.
4) J.J. Redick and his wife, Chelsea, were in a very giving mood this Christmas, donating more than $50,000 to local charities.
