Three thoughts after Magic’s 95-84 loss to Sixers

The Magic suffered their second preseason loss in Allentown, Pa., 95-84 in a game that probably should have had the Sixers’ owner apologizing for bringing two NBA teams resting many of their “star” players.

Aaron Gordon Crushes a Monster Slam

Entering the draft Orlando Magic rookie Aaron Gordon drew comparisons to another high-flying forward based in Los Angeles you probably heard of named Blake Griffin, and with this dunk on a Flamengo guard who pretended to take a charge.
