The Orlando Magic’s to-do list for the season’s final month: Elfrid Payton impressed with his back-to-back triple-doubles in a loss to the Knicks and a win over the Chicago Bulls.

And offensively, he still struggles with his shooting. — Orlando Sentinel

But in Gordon’s eyes, his book of basketball has filled up but a few pages thus far. — Magic.com
