O'Quinn wants Oladipo to play the Prince Akeem role and have rose bearers for a dunk in the contest. Oladipo dislikes that idea.

Josh Robbins

Kyle O'Quinn suggested to Vic Oladipo that VO should do a "Coming to America"-themed contest dunk. VO rejected that idea.

Payton (cont'd): “. . . even more excited that my man gets to come with me, with Vic. I think he’s having a great year."

Josh Robbins

Payton after he heard the news: “I’m excited. I’m blessed. I’m humbled and happy that the hard work has paid off . . ."

Elfrid Payton

Thanks to all the coaches who voted me into the #BBVACompassRisingStars game! Appreciate the support!

Elfrid Payton

Thank you Lord for your many blessings.

Josh Robbins

Payton said: "Obviously, it's a blessing from God if I'm able to get in there. It would just show hard work pays off."

Josh Robbins

Coincidentally, I asked Payton this morning about whether he wanted to be involved in the Rising Stars Challenge. . . .

The Magic's Victor Oladipo and Elfrid Payton will participate in All-Star Weekend's Rising Stars Challenge on Feb. 13.

Josh Robbins

Dewayne Dedmon's 10-point, 10-rebound performance was his first NBA double-double.

Evan Dunlap

Magic shaped up after halftime tonight against Grizz, but still dropped their sixth straight. sbnation.com/e/7683188

Evan Dunlap

Zach Randolph's been the best player on the floor tonight, but that lob to/in the general direction of Courtney Lee was #Shaqtin for sure

Josh Robbins

The Magic now have allowed at least 100 points in 10 consecutive games.

Evan Dunlap

No Channing Frye at all in the second half. Still about 8 mins to play.

Evan Dunlap

Harris needs to swing that ball to Fournier. Keep that defense moving.

Josh Robbins

Before the 4th, Kyle O'Quinn huddled Harris, Fournier, WGreen and Dedmon together and offered some encouragement.

Josh Robbins

Memphis: 24 of 26 from the free-throw line. Orlando: 11 of 19 from the line.

Josh Robbins

End of the third quarter: Grizzlies 89, Magic 73. Randolph: 24 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists. Oladipo; 16 points, 4 rebounds.

Evan Dunlap

FS Florida scoreboard gave that Randolph basket to the Magic.

Evan Dunlap

When was the last 5-by-5? And how soon until Anthony Davis gets one?

Evan Dunlap

Marc Gasol just ate Dewayne Dedmon's lunch. Holy cow.

Evan Dunlap

Zach Randolph is two boards and four assists shy of a triple-double.

Josh Robbins

I will say this: The Magic bench does appear into this game. Several players leaped off their seats to complain about an errant call.

Evan Dunlap

Magic have yielded just eight points to Memphis through five-plus minutes of the third quarter. Grizz had 67 in the first half.

Evan Dunlap

Now's as good a time as any to share @ZachOliverNBA's story on Dewayne Dedmon from earlier this year orlandopinstripedpost.com/2014/12/29/745…

Evan Dunlap

"Well done, partner." Jeff Turner to David Steele after Gasol misses a FT. Steele mentioned Gasol's perfect FT% upon the release.

Josh Robbins

The Magic began the third quarter using Dewayne Dedmon at power forward instead of Channing Frye.

Evan Dunlap

Dewayne Dedmon starts the second half instead of Channing Frye

Evan Dunlap

Magic players with more shooting possessions than Nik Vučević (six) tonight: Aaron Gordon, Elfrid Payton, Tobias Harris, Evan Fournier

Evan Dunlap

Anyway: Grizzlies sets a season-high for points in a half (67) as they build a 19-point edge on Orlando after 24 minutes.

Josh Robbins

Halftime: Grizzlies 67, Magic 48. Randolph: 18 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assts. Magic: 0 2nd-quarter fastbreak points.

John Denton

The @Orlando Magic see an early 26-25 lead disappear and they trail the @MemGrizzlies 67-48 at the half. Zach Randolph 18 & 7

Evan Dunlap

Some interesting Harkless/Magic stuff on @Alex Kennedy's TL rn.

Evan Dunlap

Grizzlies high for a half this year is 65 points. They're at 55 with 4:38 to go in the second.

John Denton

The @Orlando Magic are really sharp offensively, but they just can't get any stops on the other end. @Memphis Grizzlies have made 17-27 and 4-5 3s.

Josh Robbins

The Grizzlies have 49 points with 6:18 remaining in the 2nd quarter. They're shooting 63 percent.

Evan Dunlap

No FGAs in 4Q last night orlandopinstripedpost.com/2015/1/26/7901… RT @JKepnerWFTV Vucevic hasn't scored a field goal in about two and a half quarters of play.

John Denton

Today is Daytona's @Vince Carter B-day. @Memphis Grizzlies reenacted '00 Olympics when he dunked on Fred. Weis I was in Sydney Aus to see it live!

Evan Dunlap

Willie Green, back-up point guard, is now a thing, apparently

Josh Robbins

End of the 1st quarter: Grizzlies 34, Magic 29. Randolph: 12 points. Magic: 13 fastbreak points. Payton: 6 pts, 3 assts.

Evan Dunlap

Running well tonight. RT @Josh Robbins Thirteen of the Magic's 29 points have been fastbreak points.

Josh Robbins

Thirteen of the Magic's 29 points have been fastbreak points.

John Denton

Reserve C @Dewayne Dedmon giving @Orlando Magic a big lift with 2 dunks (4 pts) and 2 reb in 6 min on floor. He'll be needed vs. big @Memphis Grizzlies

Josh Robbins

The Magic are doing a good job of pushing the pace. They lead 26-25 w/2:22 to go in the 1st quarter.

Evan Dunlap

Prior to tonight, Dewayne Dedmon and Nik Vučević had played only 20 mins together this season.

Josh Robbins

The Grizz are exploiting their Zach Randolph matchup against Channing Frye. Randolph has 10 pts on 3-of-3 shooting from the field.

Evan Dunlap

Magic deactivate Maurice Harkless, activate Dewayne Dedmon. The other inactive tonight is Ben Gordon.

John Denton

I apologize for my error. @Orlando Magic starting: Frye (and not Harris) along with Payton, Oladipo, Vooch and Aaron Gordon.

John Denton

The @Orlando Magic will start same 5: Payton, Oladipo, Vooch, AGordon and Harris. Inactives: Ben Gordon. And Mo Harkless.

Josh Robbins

Magic inactives tonight: Ben Gordon and Maurice Harkless.

Josh Robbins

Same Magic starters tonight: Payton, Oladipo, Aaron Gordon, Frye and Vucevic.

John Denton

The @Memphis Grizzlies will be without Tony Allen tonight vs. @Orlando Magic
