Tobias Harris said his sprained ankle is improving, but he added it was a bad sprain.

Josh Robbins

Tobias Harris indicated it's unclear how much he'll practice today. He also said he doesn't know if he'll play Wed.

Despite their loss Sunday, the Magic vow to keep playing at a fast pace: ht.ly/HAF5G

Aaron Gordon

I'm black and white, who knows who or where I would be with out MLKs understanding of human potential. Your philosophy will live forever

Elfrid Payton

MLK day. Have to pay homage to one greatest leaders in history. We all could learn something from him.

Tobias Harris

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. -MLK

Jacque Vaughn, as animated as I've ever seen him, challenged his Magic to play tougher. sbnation.com/e/7571042

Josh Robbins

Aggression. Nastiness. The Magic lacked those qualities in a loss to OKC. Story w/postgame videos: ht.ly/Hxfxx

Evan Dunlap

Jacque Vaughn on if the Magic will go back to playing a slower, halfcourt offense: "No, that's not gonna happen."

Josh Robbins

The OKC Thunder's 79 first-half points against the Magic were the most points by any Magic opponent in any half EVER.

Josh Robbins

Jacque Vaughn: "I want hostility. I want aversion. I want nastiness. I want all of the above for us to grow as a team.”

Josh Robbins

After the game, Jacque Vaughn said he will not consider having his team revert back to a slower tempo.

Josh Robbins

The Oklahoma City Thunder's 115 points are most by a Magic opponent this season.

Evan Dunlap

Saint Weirdo wedgie alert.

Josh Robbins

I'm a bit surprised that Aaron Gordon hasn't been back in the game. But he's OK. He's riding an exercise bike to stay loose.

Evan Dunlap

Amway Center erupts in oohs, ash, and cheers as Russell Westbrook throws down a two-handed reverse jam in transition. Magic down 35.

Evan Dunlap

If Magic close game on a 46-1 run, this guy's prediction, shown several times on jumbotron, will be spot on. twitter.com/hitodd/status/…

Evan Dunlap

The third technical of the third quarter is assessed to Nik Vučević.

Evan Dunlap

Andre Roberson appeared to say something to Orlando's bench after drilling that three-pointer right in front of it

John Denton

Do the @Orlando Magic have a @Seahawks like comeback in them? Down 79-45 at half, they start the 3rd Q with 8 straight points on 2 3s & a J.

Evan Dunlap

OKC shot 27-of-30 (90 percent) on two-pointers in the first half.

Evan Dunlap

No fast-break points in the first half for Orlando.

Josh Robbins

Halftime: #Thunder 79, #Magic 45. Thunder: shooting 73 percent. Vucevic: 14 points, 7 rebounds.

John Denton

The 79 points by @Oklahoma City Thunder sets a new record for points allowed in a half by @Orlando Magic Old record: 78 on April 8, 1990

Evan Dunlap

That FT from Andre Roberson set a new Magic franchise record for opponent points in a half. OKC has 79 w/ 36.1 to play.

Josh Robbins

The Magic have given up a franchise-record 79 points in the first half.

John Denton

Since they became the @Oklahoma City Thunder this is their most points in any half, breaking old record of 74 on 4-4-10.

John Denton

The @Oklahoma City Thunder have made 14 of 16 shots in the 2nd Q and 30 of 39 (76.9%) shots in game. It's a 73-36 rout of @Orlando Magic

Evan Dunlap

OKC has more than twice as many baskets as the Magic in two fewer attempts

John Denton

Most points allowed all-time in a first half by @Orlando Magic : 78 on April 8, 1990. @Oklahoma City Thunder has 73 with 3 min left in half.

Josh Robbins

The most points the Magic ever have given up in a 1st half: 78 against Houston on April 8, 1990.

Evan Dunlap

Q: When is it Maurice Harkless time? A: When Orlando is down 35 in the first half at home, apparently.

Josh Robbins

Some boos inside Amway Center as OKC takes a 66-31 lead midway through the 2nd. In another city, the boos would be deafening.

Evan Dunlap

Magic opponent record for points in a first half is 78, set by Rockets in 1990. OKC, in bonus, has 62 w/ 5:56 to play in 2Q.

Josh Robbins

The Thunder have begun the second quarter 9 for 9 from the field. They're shooting 78%.

Evan Dunlap

6:56 to play in the first half and precisely three Orlando players have made a basket

Evan Dunlap

Two points, two fouls for Aaron Gordon in his first stint

Evan Dunlap

Magic game ops plays dance remix of "Say something I'm giving up on you" as Aaron Gordon preps to shoot a FT w/ Magic down 24 in 2Q.

Josh Robbins

This is one of the most dominant offensive displays I've seen in a long time. Thunder lead 53-27 on 22-of-29 shooting.

Evan Dunlap

Saint Weirdo and-one

Evan Dunlap

Anyway it's 44-20, OKC, here in Orlando.

Josh Robbins

Gordon hasn't played since Nov. 15 in Washington.

Josh Robbins

Aaron Gordon checks into the game to begin the second quarter.

John Denton

Turnovers (6 for 8 points) killing @Orlando Magic on offense. And because they can't get stops defensively, they can't run.

Josh Robbins

Those 37 points by the Thunder are the most points the Magic have given up in the 1st quarter all season.

Josh Robbins

End of the 1st quarter: Thunder 37, Magic 20. Westbrook: 9 points, 2 assists. Vucevic: 10 points, 5 rebounds.

John Denton

. @Orlando Magic are getting gashed by @Oklahoma City Thunder . OKC has made 13 of 19 shots. @Russell Westbrook 4 of 7 (9 pts) and @Kevin Durant is 2-2 w/ 3 assists

Evan Dunlap

You're now free to turn your attention to Magic/Thunder.

Josh Robbins

Elfrid Payton already has taken seven shots, with 2:21 left in the 1st quarter. But he's 4 of 7 with 8 points.

Evan Dunlap

Mason Crosby has more field goals in the last minute than Orlando does.

Josh Robbins

You really need to see Russell Westbrook play in-person to understand how quick and explosive he is. TV doesn't capture it.

Evan Dunlap

Is Green Bay in four-down territory here or

Evan Dunlap

I missed when Serge Ibaka turned into a trail-three grenade launcher but that's fun

Evan Dunlap

Clock issues in Orlando appear to be sorted

Evan Dunlap

idk about you but that jump-ball violation sure was more fun than whatever Seattle just did

Evan Dunlap

football is happening but also did you know the Magic are playing the Thunder? Like, momentarily?

Josh Robbins

Channing Frye commemorated tomorrow's Martin Luther King Day with a brief pregame welcome to the fans.

Evan Dunlap

Magic's "on for my city" intro isn't complete until it puts a shot of Kappy's in there

Evan Dunlap

some song playing before Magic game talking about baking soda…?

Mary Stevens

Kevin Durant and Dion Waiters are warming up. #OKC #Thunder vine.co/v/OjtV5Padhtz

Josh Robbins

Same Magic starters: Elfrid Payton, Victor Oladipo, Devyn Marble, Channing Frye and Nik Vucevic.

Evan Dunlap

Alexis Ajinça outplaying Jonas Valančiūnas is not something I would have anticipated

Josh Robbins

Calling @Joseph Goodman! An ice cream machine inside Amway Center started to smoke when it went kaput. The machine has been wheeled out.

Evan Dunlap

the soft-serve machine in the Amway Center media cafeteria is creakier than Orlando's half-court offense. MY COLUMN

Josh Robbins

AGordon (cont'd): ". . . but when I do get in the game, I'm going to help my team any way that I can."

Josh Robbins

Aaron Gordon: "I'm ready to play. I'm ready to contribute to my team. It's still up to Jacque on how much I play . . ."

Josh Robbins

Aaron Gordon acknowledged he'll be at least a bit rusty. But he said he's ready to play if his name is called.

Evan Dunlap

Magic activate Aaron Gordon, deactivate Andrew Nicholson. Plus a brief update on Tobias Harris sbnation.com/e/7524242

Evan Dunlap

Moving to the inactive list for Orlando to make room for Aaron Gordon: Andrew Nicholson

Evan Dunlap

Aaron Gordon is active, but Jacque Vaughn wouldn't guarantee that he'd play.

Josh Robbins

Jacque Vaughn said Tobias Harris (sprained ankle) is making progress -- taking shots and doing individual workouts on the court.

Josh Robbins

Jacque Vaughn wouldn't say whether he plans to play Aaron Gordon or for how many minutes if Gordon does play.

Josh Robbins

To make room for Aaron Gordon on their 13-man active roster, the Magic have deactivated Andrew Nicholson.

Josh Robbins

Tobias Harris remains inactive and, therefore, will not play tonight.

Josh Robbins

Aaron Gordon has been activated to play tonight.

Tobias Harris

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: Romans 5:1

Evan Dunlap

Stop it, Kyle Korver.

Devyn Marble

Blessed to be able to wake up and enjoy everyday to the fullest. Btw my Hawks are legitimate BIG Contenders #Hawkeyes http://t.co/U0bS7Gdtlb

A complete transformation in playing style just might save the Magic's season. Story: ht.ly/HuGQI
