February 10th Post-Shootaround Interviews
Your 14-36 Orlando Magic, in the middle of a 12-game losing streak, prepared this morning to take on a .500 Portland squad that is in the heart of their 5-game road trip. The 9th-seeded Western Conference Trail Blazers are coming off defeats at Dallas and Houston, so Coach Terry Stotts’ crew are seeking some relief entering Amway Center Sunday evening. Don’t let the losing get you down in the dumps, Magic fans, because Jacque Vaughn and the veterans refuse to ‘give in’. They’re hungrier than ever to get the gigantic gorilla off of their shoulders. JJ Redick is listed as “GTD” or a game-time decision for tonight’s contest with that bruised right shoulder. Hedo Turkoglu participated in shootaround after being hit with the flu, but is still questionable. No Al Harrington updates. Coach ‘JV’ also discussed Andrew Nicholson’s growth and his reaction to the rookie possibly getting an opportunity to sneak into the Rising Stars exhibition at All-Star Weekend.
