Magic Postgame Notes
– Right after the game, The Magic waived guard Gabe Pruitt.
– Quentin Richardson started for injured Hedo Turkoglu.
– Stan Van Gundy said before the game that because Glen Davis is the Magic’s backup center behind Dwight Howard that it might necessitate him playing as a reserve. The Magic are hoping to use Howard, Davis and Ryan Anderson at the center and power forward slots.
