The Magic's MVP at this point of the season is a guy who isn't playing and hasn't scored a point the past five games. A 290-pound ghost.
Glen "Big Baby" Davis' worth keeps growing game by game, loss by loss.

As the saying goes, there is no rooting in the press box. But I would be lying if I didn’t admit this:

Magic coach Jacque Vaughn started Gustavo Ayon against the Jazz Sunday night, sending Andrew Nicholson back to the bench.
It was the right move, given the match-up --- a battle of the bigs.

The Magic have completed a calendar year of basketball (thanks to the lockout) that has gone from being the weirdest and wildest to the calmest and most composed.
Six months of utter chaos, followed by six months of sheer order.

The preseason portion of the playoffs is over.
It was a challenge so soft that it did not even require Dwyane Wade or anything close to the best of the Heat for Sunday's sweep-completing 88-77 victory.
