In one of the most bizarre and tumultuous days in Orlando Magic history, Stan Van Gundy's club finally took the floor for an actual game after a day of drama. The Magic have looked sluggish on the offensive end so far against the New York Knicks and trail 56-44 after one half.
Dwight Howard, who was at the center of today's dramatic press conference with Stan Van Gundy, has exactly zero points through the first 24 minutes. He's taken two shots and grabbed four rebounds, while picking up two fouls. Jason Richardson has 14 points while Glen Davis, coming off a career high in Detroit, has 13 points.
Carmelo Anthony leads the Knicks with 17 points, hitting two of three attempts from behind the arc. As a team, the Knicks are shooting 60 percent from behind the arc to build the double-digit lead. But all eyes will certainly be on Howard in the second half.
