(AP) - Magic coach Jacque Vaughn is blocking out any talk about his job security ahead of Saturday night's game against the visiting Dallas Mavericks and remains focused on helping his team turn around its recent string of losses.
Vaughn said Friday morning before Orlando's practice that he is taking his third season as the Magic's coach "day-by-day" and that his approach hasn't changed despite a season-high seven-game losing streak. The Magic (15-34) have lost 13 of their last 15 overall and given up 100 or more points in 11 straight games.
"Day by day," Vaughn said when asked about his approach to the remainder of the season. "That's what I do, I've always done. I do my job the best I can that day. I went home, I watched film - nothing changed. I got up this morning, met with my group, ready for practice and ready for a game."
