Andrew Nicholson: 10 points in 17 minutes so far.
Jason Terry just approached golfer Bubba Watson, who is sitting in a baseline seat, and shook Watson's hand. "I'm a big fan," Terry said.
Dewayne Dedmon took exception to a horse-collar foul by Jeff Adrian to prevent a basket, but Dedmon didn't throw a punch.

Nik Vucevic received one of the louder cheers during pregame introductions that he's received at Amway Center.
A young Magic fan gave Kyle O'Quinn his Pop Warner jersey and wrote an adorable message on it. http://t.co/cRc2DfUz9h
Howard (cont'd): ". . . quickness or athleticism, but he'll get you the rebounds and the points that you need every night."
Dwight Howard was asked about Vucevic: "He's very skilled. He's not one of those guys who's going to fool you with his . . ."
And it's a smart decision by McHale. There's no benefit to playing D12 on the second night of a preseason back-to-back.

One hopes Nik Vučević is more Rony Seikaly than Ike Austin.
Vučević will get ~ $10 million more total than DeAndre Jordan got on 2011 offer sheet, $8M more than Larry Sanders did last yr
Biggest thing about the Vučević news: Magic still have the five-year designated player extension in their pockets.
Dwight to Nik: Pricey for center who doesn't block shots or intimidate, but ORL couldn't afford to lose a different kind of man in middle.
Pure coincidence, but news breaks on Magic C Nik Vucevic's $53 mill ext. as DHoward's team rolls into ORL. Nik arrived in 2012 Dwight trade.
Per Sentinel's Josh Robbins, Magic extend Nik Vucevic 4 yrs, $53 mill or $13.25 mill per season. Wow.
But, to reiterate, the 4-year, $53 million structure is done. Plus, there are no opt-outs in the deal.
Still to be ironed out: whether Yr 1 begins at $11.25 mill & rises by 7.5% to reach $53 mill. Or starts higher & then decreases to = $53m.
Correction ...for movies that weren't meant to be funny..
ATL gotta be one of the funniest movies ever.
If yaaaaa smelllllllllllllllll what the rock ... Is cooking
For the second consecutive season, the Magic won't formally name team captains.
