2) Jameer Nelson and Dwight Howard recognized their mistake and admit they should have been in a late-game huddle during the team's loss to New York on Wednesday, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
3) Everyone loves a good conspiracy theory, don't they? The New York Post reports that several Magic players were spotted in the wee hours of the morning after a long night of partying during their off day in New York City. Could this have explained the team's lackluster performance? (h/t Tom Weir of USA Today)
4) Three of the four teams that have tried to attempt the dreaded Florida back-to-back this year have come home empty-handed, Evan Dunlap of Orlando Pinstriped Post notes.
5) Jason Terry already has an eye toward free agency and told Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida that he would be an asset to the Heat (h/t Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News). It certainly did not help Miami go easy on Terry as he went 1 for 10 in Dallas' loss Thursday.
6) Expect to see Brendan Haywood back on the floor tonight as he and Delonte West get off the injured list, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News writes.
7) Evan Dunlap of Orlando Pinstriped Post asks the question: can the Magic beat the Bulls or Heat in the second round?
