Jacque Vaughn, Victor Oladipo, Alex Martins and Jason Maxiell on Thanksgiving: http://t.co/Bzrdjft8hl
So much to be thankful for! Just to wake up and receive another day is such a blessing. Happy Thanksgiving to all!! God Bless.
“Follow me,” Jesus said to him, and Levi got up, left everything and followed him. Luke 5:27
Sixers have missed five free throws, so text "fries" to 313131 tomorrow in Central FL for a free lg order of fries.
20 points in 23 minutes for Thaddeus Young off Philly's bench. That three cut the Magic's lead to three.
Magic 3-1 this year when leading after third. Sixers 3-8 when trailing after third. Orlando up four after three here.
Ronnie Price just shook Lorenzo Brown and then hit a floater over a strong contest
Thaddeus Young on a contender is going to be really, really fun.
It's unclear whether Jameer Nelson has had X-rays yet on his foot. The initial diagnosis of a sprain will be evaluated again.
Is Amway Center playing "Gangnam Style" right now?: yes
ceremonial check is made out to "MAGIC FAN"
Jameer Nelson will not return to the game. He has a sprained left foot, team officials say.
We have a winner: dude named Nate just drilled a halfcourt shot for $1,000.
Some teams give away cars for made halfcourt shots. The Magic offer $1,000.
Magic did not score in the final 3:57 of the half. 10-0 Sixers run closes gap to 55-50.
Magic now playing a Hanukkah-themed cover of OutKast's "Hey Ya!"
Nik Vucevic midway through the second quarter: 17 points (8 for 8) and 8 rebounds.
Nik Vučević stays perfect. He's now 8/8 for 17 points in 14 mins.
Jameer Nelson limps a bit as he comes off the court with 7:27 left in the 2nd quarter.
Jameer Nelson hobbling as he comes off the floor. Team trainer Keon Weise is checking with him now.
After sinking the shot, Davis ran up the floor with his arms outstretched and palms skyward
Glen Davis banks in a heave at the end of the shot clock and the PA guy has to stifle laughter as he calls his name.
Nicholson made the shot, but man, nothing happened on that trip. No movement.
That Magic possession: Harkless rebounds, gets past mid court just in time to avoid 8-second count, makes one pass.
very bizarre between-quarters thing with lyrics about stuffing one's turkey with "a big ol' baby," "Afflalo," and "Dunkin' 'Dipo"
Ball didn't breach three-pt line on the Magic possession until maybe 4 seconds remained on the shot clock.
Michael Carter-Williams is so much better now compared to his summer-league play.
Maurice Harkless at the table, set to be the Magic's ninth player tonight.
Jason Maxiell is set to check in for Orlando. He hasn't played in the magic's last three games.
Andrew Nicholson: vulnerable to pump fakes.
Nik Vučević has 11 points and three boards in seven minutes against his former club.
Orton highlight reel: two blocks and two dunks, one of them on Bismack Biyombo. Orton played 187 mins for Magic across 16 games.
Barely any clapping inside Amway Center -- if any clapping -- after the video tribute to Jason Richardson and Daniel Orton.
yup here's the Orton tribute video. Jason Richardson too
Fry watch: Young misses two foul shots. Three more Sixers misses will mean free large fries for Magic fans.
Afflalo has shed Turner twice with that up-fake after an escape dribble going left-right.
Magic go from Afflalo's Thanksgiving message to blasting "Click Click Boom." Quite a tonal shift.
Arron Afflalo takes the mic pregame to thank fans for coming out and to wish them a happy Thanksgiving.
Jacque Vaughn and Brett Brown spoke with each other near midcourt just before the national anthem and intros.
Brett Brown said the Magic have done "a fantastic job" in the first year of their rebuild.
Board in media room lists Lavoy Allen and Daniel Orton as Philly's starting bigs.
Brett Brown wouldn't name Sixers' starting lineup. Needed to think about it some more.
No Tobias Harris for the Magic or Spencer Hawes for the Sixers tonight.
Spencer Hawes (knee) will not play tonight for the Sixers, Brett Brown said.
Tobias Harris (high-ankle sprain) will not play tonight, Jacque Vaughn said.
Grantland: "I've described Oladipo as a broken cursor, a failing helicopter, a fraying feather duster, and a blind hyena." (1/2)
Magic play home tonight and Friday, then go on 6-game roadtrip. Home for a game, then on road for two more. Eight of nine away. Rough.
Spencer Hawes (knee) will be a gametime decision for Philly. Tony Wroten (back) will not play, Brett Brown said.
Thad Young joined the Sixers for their shootaround today, Brett Brown said. Likely to play tonight against the Magic.
You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. Psalm 73:24
Andrew Nicholson's per-36s after tonight: 18.7 points and 10.4 rebounds. True Shooting: 57.7 percent.
Kennedy: "In a week when we all carve Thanksgiving turkeys, Victor Oladipo feasts on the Atlanta defense with a whole lot of stuffing."
Paul Kennedy just dropped an all-timer on us in this Magic Live bumper
