Between Oladipo, Carter-Williams, Thad Young, and Wroten, Magic/Sixers is weirdly League Pass-y despite being a matchup of rebuilding teams.
Victor Oladipo was nominated for the East's Rookie of the Month for November, but Michael Carter-Williams beat him.
Magic in black tonight, in which uniform they're 0-3 this year. 5-3 in white, 1-5 in blue.
Nik Vucevic on his sprained left ankle: "It didn’t swell up a lot. It’s not too sore."
why isn't Brook Lopez's "LAWRENCE FRANK?!" from Draft night on YouTube?
So: figurehead title for Lawrence Frank (like Stan Van Gundy in Miami) or will he really be responsible for, like, doing things?
Nik Vucevic's ankle did not swell badly over the last 20 hours. Perhaps having today-Thurs off will help him play Friday

Tobias Harris' original diagnosis of a high-ankle sprain was confirmed in his 2nd opinion, team officials say.
And the verdict is in: Geno's Cheesesteaks are much better than Pat's. Had a couple of bites of both. http://t.co/TNdJtRG1iH

Not being able to sleep on planes is kinda tough on road trips... Lol
Nik Vucevic had an X-ray on his left ankle after the game tonight. No fracture. He walked out of the arena w/out crutches
In his last 18 minutes across four games, Solomon Jones has two field goals, one rebound, one assist, and two fouls .
Barely visible as Maurice Harkless drills a step-back three at the shot-clock horn: Chris Singleton shrugging, looking around
David Steele refers to Magic's upcoming road schedule as "Rand-McNally's dream." Philly tmw, NY Friday, HOU Sun., MEM Mon., CHA Wed.
Magic are 2-of-13 on threes tonight. I imagine Andrew Nicholson shoots a better percentage from midcourt.
Listen, you're not going to win m/any road games when two starters combine to miss 13 of their 14 shots.

Gortat not showing great awareness, and I'm not just referring to that retweet from yesterday.
Trevor Ariza with 8:40 to go in the third quarter: 24 points on 8-of-9 shooting.
At halftime, Magic were minus-19 on threes and free throws. Down by 11.
Trevor Ariza: only above replacement-level in games against the Magic. See: tonight and the 2009 Finals.
Halftime: Washington 52, Orlando 41. Ariza: 19 points. Afflalo: 17 points, 5 rebounds. Oladipo 11 points, 5 rebounds.
Marcin Gortat could not get out of the way of that Victor Oladipo drive quickly enough
Glen Davis cannot score on Nenê
That's the third offensive basket interference call against Nik Vučević in the last game-plus.
Arron Afflalo is an All-Star.
PS: it's December and the Magic still don't have any alley-oop dunks.
Arron Afflalo has dunked once all year, and video of the play made that Magic/Fox Sports Florida promo there
Fair to say Chris Singleton stepping into a wide-open trail three and barely drawing any iron is Washington's year in a nutshell?
This is the arena where E'Twaun Moore suffered his elbow injury last season. The injury disrupted his momentum for rest of the season.
The esteemed Joey Colon is the loudest person inside this arena right now.
Victor Oladipo received some nice cheers when he was introduced as a starter at Verizon Center.
