With the second half of this truncated season underway, it is time to predict how the rest of this crucial Orlando Magic year unfolds. With Dwight Howard's future in O-Town on the line, the Magic, since the beginning of the season, have had to play efficient, winning basketball to try to convince their perennial All-Star that this is the organization to sign long-term with.

However, the Orlando Magic did not accomplish this goal in the beginning of the season. Despite possessing a playoff-worthy 22-13 record before the All-Star break, the Orlando Magic are widely not considered a championship contending team.

Not only is their defense subpar, the Orlando Magic, a team notorious for jacking up way too many three-pointers, have had trouble scoring the ball.

Even though they have had problems on both sides of the court, the play of All-NBA talent Dwight Howard and breakout power forward Ryan Anderson have largely kept them afloat.

Nonetheless, the Orlando Magic still have a long way to go till the end of their 2011-12 season and the following slides show my predictions on how it will unravel.
