Elfrid Payton's career-high assist total is 11. Tonight, he has 8 assists with 6:05 left in the 2nd quarter.

Mary Stevens

Maurice Harkless starts the second quarter. Keep an eye on his right hand... he was icing it before the game. #Magic

Josh Robbins

End of the 1st: #Magic 28, #Grizzlies 27. Frye: 8 points. Gasol: 7 points, 7 rebounds.

John Denton

With @Phoenix Suns F @Channing Frye thrived playing w/ 2 drive-n-kick PGs. Now that @Orlando Magic have @Victor Oladipo & @Elfrid Payton attacking, CF thriving.

John Denton

Vs Portland (1 of 10 & 1 of 8) & Chicago (2 of 10 & 1 of 7), @Orlando Magic F @Channing Frye was 3 of 20 & 2 of 15. Last 2 games: 8-13 & 7-11

Josh Robbins

Dave Joerger was incensed that Victor Oladipo got that driving layup down the center of the lane.

John Denton

For a 2nd consecutive game, @Orlando Magic F @Channing Frye has made his first 3 shots 3 3s on Wed ... tonight 2 3s and a long J.

John Denton

The @Orlando Magic have made 5 of 7 shots and forced 2 TOs to jump to an 11-4 lead on @Memphis Grizzlies

John Denton

With Mike Conley OUT because of a sprained ankle, @Memphis Grizzlies will start Beno Udrih tonight vs. @Orlando Magic Beno played in ORL during 12-13.

John Denton

Another potential break for @Orlando Magic as @Memphis Grizzlies PG Mike Conley (right ankle sprain) is OUT. Orlando native Nick Calathes could start.

Josh Robbins

Jacque Vaughn noted that Aaron Gordon hasn't done any 5-on-5 work yet. Gordon still is cleared to play; the practice sked hasn't cooperated.

Josh Robbins

Aaron Gordon will not be activated for tonight's Magic game against the Grizzlies. He hasn't practiced enough.

Josh Robbins

In their first 40 games, the Magic's pace was 95.0 possessions per 48 minutes. In the last 2: 104.2 possessions per 48.

Josh Robbins

In their first 40 games, the Magic scored 98.4 points per 100 possessions. In the last 2: 114.1 points per 100.

Josh Robbins

If Aaron Gordon plays tonight, it will occur exactly 2 months to the day since the team announced his injury.

Update on Magic rookie Aaron Gordon, who appears on track to play tonight against the Grizzlies: ht.ly/HrFYG

David Baumann

Henny & Vaughn haven't been playing w/ a true NBA roster since the Howard trade. They got 4-year contracts for a reason. A 4-year rebuild.

David Baumann

My @Orlando Magic take: Henny & Vaughn get '15 offseason to make MAJOR splash in FA & make GREAT lotto pick. Then we see true capabilities.

Evan Dunlap

The Magic have listed Aaron Gordon as "probable" for tonight's game against Memphis sbnation.com/e/7320884

Evan Dunlap

Per Magic's PR department: Aaron Gordon is "probable" for tonight's game.

Josh Robbins

The Magic's newfound up-tempo style seems suited to Aaron Gordon's game. It's obviously ideal for Vic Oladipo & Elfrid Payton.

John Denton

With @Tobias Harris (ankle sprain) still out, @Orlando Magic welcome back @Aaron Gordon to provide depth at small forward and power forward.

Josh Robbins

Jacque Vaughn said he hasn't determined his active list for tonight's game.

Josh Robbins

Aaron Gordon has been cleared to play in games, JV said. It's unclear if he'll be activated for tonight's game.

Tobias Harris

Aaron Gordon

Back at it again on SiriusXM chnl 207 for my weekly "Year One" show. Tune in @7pmEST and call in at 8556225867, I want to hear from the fans

David Baumann

A thought for @Orlando Magic fans... Did the #Magic absolutely steal @Nikola Vucevic for the next four years? How close is he to a MAX player?

Evan Dunlap

New episode of Inside Stuff will spotlight Tobias Harris and his grandfather, one of the Tuskeegee Airmen sbnation.com/e/7317606

Last six games for Nik Vucevic, per Magic's PR dept.: 24.3 ppg and 11.8 rpg, while shooting .573 from floor

Evan Dunlap

An @OPPMagicBlog has nicknamed a certain Magic guard Victory Oladunkio after his performance tonight.

Elfrid Payton

Great to finally give the fans a win at home.

Evan Fournier

Im not the only player with a ponytail anymore !!! #newtrend #Hawes #ESPN

Josh Robbins

Dwight Howard: "I just think it started with their point guard. The guy with the crazy hair. He's the one that started everything."

Josh Robbins

In their first 40 games, the Magic averaged 95 possessions per game. In the last two, they've averaged 104 possessions.

Evan Fournier

Best tattoo shop in Orlando people?

Josh Robbins

In their first 40 games, the Magic averaged 93.6 pts per game. In their last two games, the Magic scored 121 & 120 pts.

Josh Robbins

John Denton

. @Orlando Magic -- which couldn't break 92 pts a week ago -- are 5th team in @NBA to score 120 points in 2 games. @Golden State Warriors last to do it.

Tobias Harris

Mannnnnn! Another great W!!!! Lets keep getting better. Fans thank you for all the support!! #PureMagic

John Denton

Last time @Orlando Magic score 120 points in consecutive games Feb. 13-16 of 1996. Won 121-93 vs. Den and 121-91 vs Mil in '96. Days of Shaq

David Baumann

Great day for @Orlando Magic fans. Beating Dwight Howard's teams will always be fun. Time for this rebuild to start showing positive signs.

Josh Robbins

Oladipo so far: 28 points on 11 of 17 shooting, 6 rebounds, 4 assists.

John Denton

Incredibly pass from @Orlando Magic PG @Elfrid Payton to wrap ball around @Dwight Howard and feed @Victor Oladipo for dunk. ORL up 100-98 w/ 5:34 left.

Josh Robbins

End of the 3rd quarter: #Rockets 85, #Magic 84. Harden: 20 points, 6 assists. Oladipo: 26 points.

Josh Robbins

Great defense by Dwight Howard there on Nik Vucevic, denying Vucevic post position and confronting Ridnour on the pick-and-roll.

John Denton

The @Houston Rockets clearly plan on using @Dwight Howard more in 2nd half. D-12 already has 3 FGs and 4 FTs for 10 points in 3rd Q alone.

Josh Robbins

Jacque Vaughn was upset there that James Harden grabbed an easy offensive rebound, saying something to Fournier after the play.

John Denton

With 5:08 in 3rd Q, @Orlando Magic go to @Evan Fournier in place of @Devyn Marble . Dev is 0-7. Fournier had 2 strong moves in 1st half.

Josh Robbins

Victor Oladipo might challenge his career scoring high. He has 25. His high is 35.

Josh Robbins

Channing Frye has snapped out of his shooting slump. He's 4 for 7 from 3-point range. He's added 5 rebounds, 5 assists.

John Denton

Wow, 1 of silliest plays of night -- @Houston Rockets G Pat Beverley fouled @Devyn Marble on a 3-pt att. He was 0-6 before that. Dev made 3 FTs

David Baumann

6th straight double double for Vucevic. 17/10 w 8:43 left in 3rd.

David Baumann

At the half, @Orlando Magic C @Nikola Vucevic on pace for his 3rd straight 30-10 game... 2 rebounds away from a 6th straight double-double.

David Baumann

15/8 for Vuc at the half. Dwight has 6/5. Vucevic on pace for another 30/10 game.

Mary Stevens

Nik Vucevic and Victor Oladipo with another solid performance. At the half, Vucevic has 15 pts/8 rebounds and Oladipo has 18 pts.

Josh Robbins

Halftime: #Magic 55, #Rockets 52. Oladipo: 18 points. Howard: 6 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists.

David Baumann

8 points for Oladipo in the blink of an eye. 10-0 run for the #magic have them up 53-47 on the #Rockets.

John Denton

10-0 run by @Orlando Magic gives them 53-47 lead. @Victor Oladipo scores 8 in run w/ 2 3-pointers & steal for a layup. Gives shimy shake after 3.

Josh Robbins

It's too early to make a definitive judgment, but this fast pace seems to suit Victor Oladipo's strengths very well.

Mary Stevens

Veteran Andre Miller told @BBallInsiders he doesn't plan to retire after this season: bit.ly/14BEOX3 (Via @Lang Greene) #Wizards

Josh Robbins

The Magic are getting wide-open 3s, but the players taking them -- Marble and Harkless -- are simply missing.

Mary Stevens

The Nuggets are not trying to "give anyone away" before the trade deadline: bit.ly/1C2e7rU

Josh Robbins

End of the 1st Q: #Magic 29, #Rockets 19. Frye: 9 points, 2 assists. Harden: 5 points.

John Denton

2 hard drives -- one a dunk and one a layup off a curl -- for @Orlando Magic G @Evan Fournier Suffered gruesome hyper-extended knee on Fri

Josh Robbins

Channing Frye is breaking out of his slump by making his first two 3-point tries tonight.

Josh Robbins

Dwight Howard was booed soundly during the Rockets' pregame introductions in Orlando tonight.

Josh Robbins

The Magic's 2009 postseason good-luck anthem singer, Gina Marie Incandela, will sing the national anthem tonight.

John Denton

Sticking with 30-pt game theme for @Orlando Magic , @Tracy McGrady had 3 straight 30-pt games in March, February and January (twice) in 2004.

Josh Robbins

Evan Fournier (right knee) isn't 100%, but he told Jacque Vaughn he's ready to play.

Josh Robbins

Evan Fournier has been placed on the active roster, and Tobias Harris has been placed on the inactive list.

David Baumann

This was an unbelievable debut. @lmillernpr and @aspiegelnpr, what a story. Martin's journey gives many people hope. npr.org/2015/01/09/375…

Orlando Magic shootaround update, focusing on Nik Vucevic's matchup against Dwight Howard: ht.ly/HjAYk

John Denton

More @Orlando Magic C @Nikola Vucevic on @Dwight Howard "I knew it was impossible for me to replace him." Nik's coming off games of 34 & 33 pts

John Denton

It will be the 3rd straight game OUT for @Orlando Magic F @Tobias Harris because of an ankle sprain suffered last Friday in LA.

Josh Robbins

Jacque Vaughn said he'll take a look at Evan Fournier (knee) at shootaround before anything is decided on EF's status.

John Denton

. @Orlando Magic won't know til game time if they'll have @Evan Fournier (knee sprain) tonight vs. @Houston Rockets @Tobias Harris is OUT.
