Since Bradley Beal went down five games ago, Russell Westbrook is *averaging* 24 PPG, 14 RPG, 13 APG while playing 38 MPG.

I'll be honest, I have been looking forward to watching the team play again. Have not felt this way all year.

It's not out of the question at all that the Magic have Anthony/Hampton/Okeke/WCJ all on the floor at the same time in non-garbage minutes as early as tonight.

I'm not sure what else you could ask for in a lost season other than that.

right there with you.
At the start of the season, I had 3 things that kept me engaged with this team.
Fultz, Okeke and Cole.
It's been a while since I've gotten to watch 2 of those 3 perform.
Now add in Hampton & Carter, I'm now getting 4 things to watch!!
I'd like a 110-109 loss please. Bacon & Ennis go 1-10, rest of the team shoots +50% from the field.

Exactly. Lots of moving parts on this team now to be intrigued in.

This would be an important game to lose. But we'll probably win.

Wizards without Beal, Pacers without half of a team. Yea this smells like something most people will complain in 2024
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.

Man, they should've beat the Raptors. Refs swallowed whistle on last play.

This is a winnable game, and that makes me happy. But I guess we are all supposed to be pro-tankers now.

Go Magic ?

I agree.
I want to see our young guys shine, I'm hoping Bacon/Ennis to screw up the win.
