Stan Van Gundy shakes health scare
ESPN.com news services
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy was on the sidelines coaching Tuesday against the Charlotte Bobcats despite a health scare less than 24 hours earlier.
Van Gundy says he developed some mild chest pain during the Magic's 92-88 win Monday night in Toronto. Van Gundy stayed behind to get checked out by doctors as a precautionary measure, but everything turned out fine and he didn't spend the night in the hospital.
Van Gundy didn't make the team flight and flew to Charlotte on Tuesday morning on his own for the game.
Van Gundy saw the Magic give away a 20-point lead against the Bobcats en route to a 100-84 loss.
Van Gundy, 52, did his usual postgame media interviews after the Magic's game Monday against the Raptors and didn't mention the illness.
Van Gundy has compiled 247-120 regular-season record in five seasons with the team.
