On Wednesday night, the Orlando Magic are on the road taking on the Philadelphia 76ers in a battle of teams that are just trying to salvage what’s left of the season, or trying to get a better pick in the draft, whichever way you want to look at it.

Things in the first quarter so far are certainly not going in the right direction for veteran guard Jameer Nelson, who was ready to make a play off the transition, a plan which was immediately brought to a halt by the fact that Nelson couldn’t keep his feet under him and nearly faceplanted in a hard way.

That about sums up this entire season so far not just for the Magic, but for their opponents as well. It’s just in this case, the Magic were the team in the negative spotlight.
