If we add nothing but 2 way players in the draft, I could see up being a top 10 defense next year. Usually that translates into a playoff birth.

Clippers on back to back, 3 starters out.
Both Lakers and Clippers took us as a joke and had no desire to be there.


I wish teams would use the Golden State model from the previous seasons, against us.
Play hard for 2 and 1/2 Quarters, build lead and get your starters out, coast to victory.
Keep your stars under 25 min per game in these "should win" games.

How many ? Actually one. Fultz.

Isaac has been ruled out for 2020-21 last season so it's nothing new.

I'm not doing anything to anybody but those " our defense is great now" takes are nothing but hot takes. What do you think is inner motive for contender to play against team with 3rd worst record? Not high, that's sure. Now combine it with fact they played another game 20 hours before that one.
Prediction day after Vuc, Gordon, Evan departure - most fans who are celebrating birth of new rebuild will be crying how rebuild is painful before 2022-23 season ends.

Isaac out. Fournier out. Vuc out. their backups were in there. so lets not act like this was some high and mighty Orlando team.

the starting lineup was MCW, Bacon, Birch, Eniis and Okeke.

Bro, this game happend after a trade. Those guys were all gone from a team.

Magic have 2 active players listed as injuried with chance to return to action. Harris ( proably getting back within few weeks) and Cole Anthony ( should be back soon ).

Fultz & Isaac are season ending injuries, we knew Isaac won't play long time ago.

i get it happened after. It doesnt make the players that actually started the game, real actual starters. they were all backups 4 days ago. that is the crappy team that beat the Clippers.

Return to Orlando Magic
