Orlando Magic guard Jameer Nelson discusses the team's loss to the San Antonio Spurs Wednesday.

Magic players and coaches held a team meeting before Thursday’s practice to address several issues such as effort, accountability and defining roles.

After Wednesday night’s lackluster loss to the San Antonio Spurs, center Nik Vucevic and shooting guard J.J. Redick said the meeting was productive.

“I’m certainly going to have some conversations with a few of the guys over the next couple of days,” Redick said. “Coach (Jacque Vaughn) did a nice job this morning in our meeting trying to get everybody on the same page.

“The goal, ultimately, is winning and what can we do to get each other to play better. For us, it was good.”

Vucevic said the issues weren’t so much about the loss to the Spurs “but the way we played. …We talked about people’s roles on the team. (Vaughn) fixed a lot of stuff.”

Frustrated veterans Arron Afflalo and Glen Davis likely triggered the meeting after speaking publicly after the loss to the Spurs, especially about teammates learning their roles.

“I think we still need to find out who’s our guys and who’s not our guys,” Davis said. “Then everybody can kind of move on. At the same time, we need to grow. We need to find out who’s our energy guy, who’s our vocal guy.

“At times like this, we really need to bite down and check each other…and see what we can all do to make this team better.”

Redick said that despite the preseason and 14 regular-season games the Magic – who revamped their team after the Dwight Howard trade – are still finding their footing.

“Yes, we are still trying to figure things out and it is a work in progress,” Redick said. “The goal is to get better every day and we took a step back and that’s just unacceptable because we can’t have steps back.

“For me, it starts with personal accountability. When you lose a game and you played poor you wonder, `What could I have done better?’ Regardless of who the opponent was, that’s irrelevant. We got our butts kicked.”
