1) Dwight Howard told Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel the team needs to understand their roles better in the wake of Orlando's loss to Boston and avoid trying to take over games individually. Jason Richardson tells Schmitz that the Magic need to shed their "soft" label.
2) These two losses to the Celtics cannot be helping the Magic make their case to Dwight Howard, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel writes.
5) Nate Drexler of MagicBasketball.net is coming to the unfortunate realization that 2009 Jameer Nelson was an aberration.
6) Eric Gordon tells John Reid of The New Orleans Times Picayune that the decision not to sign an extension with the Hornets was a mutual one between he and the organization, despite reports to the contrary.
7) A year after it opened, complaints about cell phone coverage inside Amway Center have not subsided, Walter Pacheco of the Orlando Sentinel writes.
8) It was a somewhat happy reunion for the Magic as Mickael Pietrus and Brandon Bass returned to Amway Center for the first time since their trades.
