I don't know why (having watched all but a couple of games this season), this is the one that's made me go "urgh, we're horrible". Maybe just reached saturation point of bad basketball lol
I still believe in Magic!

I really look forward to the day that Ross is gone. I like him, but I hate his game. He has held our 2nd unit's offense hostage for years.

He is Rocky Balboa. He has talent. He's just settled into an awful role and hasn't improved over the course of his career.

Been thinking this myself and have three unproven and totally speculative thoughts

1. Wendell is way underrated and was doing a great job keeping everything together. I swear our starting unit used to play good ball all the time with him.

2. We're showcasing Ross and that plus the tanking has crossed the line for heaps of guys so they've stopped giving a ****

3. Too much time has passed since our poor performances early in the season and I've forgotten them.

Just think we could have Fultz chucking 3pts at the end of the game soon.

Today's positive takeaway: only 9 TOs. Indeed in all these close losses, TO levels have really dropped. Is coach'e system starting to work?

Really all that is missing in all these losses is a higher FG% rate. That means Orlando lacks talent. I am actually kind of pleased with this game from an informational perspective.

31 Assists, Not sure if that is a season high, has to be close.

18 offensive rebounds.

Didn't get to watch this one, looks like they settled down after a terrible 1st Q.
Out scored them after the 1st by 9.

I agree with this assessment, the only thing the team lacks is talent.

Its frustrating watching the team fail to execute down the stretch on offense and defense but its for the best for the lottery positioning. At least they have been competing.
