After a lengthy rest, the Magic were back in action on Wednesday night when they traveled to 'the Hive' to take on Chris Paul and the New Orleans Hornets. For this affair, the Magic brought back their black alternate uniforms, which meant Gilbert Arenas had the platform to really make a splash with his sneaker selection.

The last time the Magic wore the black alternates, Gil stunted in the Nike Air More Uptempo for the second time this season. This time around, he laced up the somewhat unheralded Black/University Air Jordan Retro 14. Though the "Carolina" blue doesn't quite match up with the light royal color that Orlando wears, Gilbert was able to pull it off because he's Gilbert.

Unfortunately for Orlando, their winning ways didn't continue. The Hornets stung the Magic 92-89 in overtime to end their winning streak at 9 games. Arenas made a modest 4 point, 2 assist and 2 rebound contribution in only 14 minutes of action.
