Super Bowl 1 – Orlando Magic 0

No hotel rooms from Magic in IndianapolisThe NBA's truncated schedule includes a game featuring the Orlando Magic at Indiana Pacers on Saturday night, on a weekend when there is a significantly larger event taking place in Indianapolis. 

One problem, the team and the league could not find any hotel rooms for the Magic. 

The Magic host the Cavs on Friday. Following the game, the team will fly to Cincinnati, where they will spend the night. After a Saturday morning walkthrough in the hotel ballroom, Orlando will fly to Indianapolis for their game and then fly back to Florida immediately after the contest.

An obviously angry Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy voiced his dismay to the media.

“You guys can comment on it and save me my money. When you come out with the schedule in December and have a game in the Super Bowl city, lodging might be a problem,” exclaimed Van Gundy.

The Magic are already in a foul mood, having lost five of their last seven games, amid all the Dwight Howard trade rumors.   

Did anyone at NBA headquarters really think this was a good idea? 

Update: To the Magic's credit, the team found a way to come together and defeat the Pacers 85-81, after finally arriving in Indy on Super Bowl Saturday night. This victory came on the heels of Orlando's 102-94 win over the Cavs at home the night prior.
