Good win though the Fultz injury is just a huge blow

Good win. Do need to clean up that passing though. Lots of lazy passes that got stolen.

Bacon has been stringing some good games together

B2B coming up. I think they should consider just tanking the second game. They could give whatever players we have on the bench 20 or 30 minutes. They schedule is to hard right now.

Mane was one of the top players in his class in Canada I think.

Anyway, yeah, surprised he scored first that Bamba. Bamba really needs to get himself inside the paint.

We will be firmly under .500 by the end of this month. Even before Fultz's injury that would have been the case. We are not good. This Cavs team is missing everyone and our other wins outside of Miami have been against bad teams who were missing major rotational pieces as well.

The draft is all we have to look forward to at this point. Bamba can't get on the court, && when he does he doesn't show anything worth getting excited about. Okeke is hurt && hasn't shown anything either. Anthony plays hard but is very limited as a scorer.

This is a great draft class && we need a great player. Hopefully we can get lucky. I'm not counting on it though.

Jordan Bone gave us some good minutes but I think we’re going to need a third PG.

Despite having hair that makes him look like a Star Wars extra, I thought Jordan Bone looked serviceable tonight.

Bone might need to be upgraded to a full contract. Otherwise the Magic need to sign an available FA PG, and that list will be small.

Fultz injury just takes the joy to watch this season :banghead: :banghead:

Let's hope Bamba get's minutes and see if it triggers a great duo with Cole. Otherwise, just trade and tank :giveup: :(

Injuries happen when you grind it out with this schedule. Just resting players on B2Bs is for the greater good. Look at Atlanta, they recently played at B2B and are on a losing streak. Philly rested players on a B2B and only lost that one game.

Clifford was practicing these guys the other day instead of resting them. That's the difference between a coach like Doc Rivers and him. Clifford over works the players which causes injuries.

Clifford needs to be held accountable for Markelle's injury too, if he's been running him on days off with this schedule. They were doing interviews from practice on the most recent day off. Was it worth it Cliff?

TBH, I always considered MCW to be a PG. He won ROY as the Sixers PG no?

Well if MCW is the PG and just surround him with shooters then he can be the one to pass to them instead of taking it. lol

Ross, Bacon, Clark, Birch/Bamba.

Sneaky "average" shooting team :P
Bold Predictions:
1. Deandre Ayton biggest disappointment of 2018 draft.
2. Nick Nurse becomes Orlando Magic Head Coach. (15.04.2018)

Except for Birch... I dunno if you call them average but instead cold/hot polarizing shooters. LOL

Somedays they just can't miss and somedays even their layups rims out.
