Magic Sweep Bucks Decisively Bucks 98 – Magic 114
|Tobias Harris, F 21 MIN | 2-4 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 4 PTS | -5
He started! And for the first two minutes, he looked good around the rim with a dunk and an offensive rebound. What started as a promising night quickly turned sour as he was benched quickly in favor of Mbah a Moute.
|Carlos Delfino, SF 29 MIN | 3-9 FG | 2-2 FT | 2 REB | 4 AST | 10 PTS | -9
Another game of Delfino being handily outplayed at the wing. There was one moment where the cameras showed Delfino talking to Ilyasova on the sideline. I thought to myself, “How?” That’s also my thinking on Delfino’s play dropping from “sufficient” to “awful.” What did he do during the all-star break?
|Brandon Jennings, PG 32 MIN | 9-17 FG | 8-12 FT | 3 REB | 5 AST | 27 PTS | -16
Another strong outing for Jennings who wasn’t shooting very well. So what did he do? He attacked the rim and got to the free throw line. That wasn’t something Jennings did very often in his first two seasons, so it’s good to see him grow.
|Mike Dunleavy, SF 30 MIN | 3-7 FG | 0-0 FT | 4 REB | 1 AST | 8 PTS | -5
Dunleavy was the engine that propelled the Bucks second quarter outburst with two threes and an assist in the second. After that, he was barely effective, missing two shots over the rest of the game.
|Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, SF 24 MIN | 3-5 FG | 2-5 FT | 6 REB | 2 AST | 8 PTS | -11
Tobias Harris and Jon Leuer’s playing time has been taken by Moute for what reason? Moute didn’t exactly slow down the Magic offense. The Magic’s offensive efficiency for the game was a ridiculous 114.
|Jon Brockman, F 7 MIN | 2-3 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 0 AST | 4 PTS | -3
Brockman found his niche on this team. Midway through the third quarter, Skiles had Brockman foul Dwight Howard the moment Howard crossed half court. It was mildly to not effective at all.
|Jon Leuer, F 3 MIN | 0-1 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 0 AST | 0 PTS | +2
|Larry Sanders, C 12 MIN | 4-5 FG | 0-1 FT | 1 REB | 0 AST | 8 PTS | +10
Great shooting night for Larry Sanders. That hasn’t been/won’t be said very often, so we have to take opportunities when we get them.
