  1. 3rd Quarter Collapse

    Magic Vs. Suns - Wednesday, Dec. 4th at 7:00 P.M.

    3 wins in a row. Probably going to get a winning streak of four versus Cleveland before facing the gauntlet of Bucks-Lakers-Rockets all in a row.

    Magic @ Wizards - Tues., Dec. 3rd at 7:00 PM

    Fultz played 31 minutes. First time crossing the 30 minute plateau.

    It’s fine since DJ is hot, but I don’t get the logic in playing Fultz off ball and Augustin as the main ball handler. It makes zero sense to me

    And he hits one right afterwards. Still, he’s had some absolutely ugly shots

    Man, Gordon has had some serious three point regression. He was ok last year, and now it’s terrible

    I think they’re moreso referring to pace of play. Washington wants to run and gun; We want to slow it down and run our half court offense to produce points.

    I think the point is that having Augustin be so central to the offense when he’s on the court and have Fultz be more of a secondary ball handler when he’s on the court exacerbates DJ’s issues and limits the impact of Fultz. I’m more patient with Ross since he can take over games if he gets going, but it feels like DJ being in a pick and roll is too prevalent in the offense when he’s on the court, and Fultz being in a pick and roll is too rare when he’s on the court. I don’t know how attributable that is to Clifford, but with the way our offense is functioning, especially at PG, it holds back our team imo.

    Outplayed Toronto for three quarters, but collapsed in the 3rd. Same story as the Detroit game. Credit to Toronto for upping their defense, but our tendency to go on scoring droughts in the third kills our ability to win. Both games we went on scoring droughts of 5 minutes or more.

    Does this effect Okeke at all in terms of signing him to an NBA contract? We signed Okeke to a G league contract due to cap issues, but since we now have the cap, would we sign him to a NBA contract or would it make more sense to keep him in Lakeland?

    His activity level is up. I do think some of that is focus and effort, but I also think he’s getting to his spots quicker, playing a little more aggressive and being better in his defensive positioning. He still has these Bamba moments where he gets outrebounded by a player that shouldn’t outrebound him, he goes up too soft around the rim and it results in him missing a lay up on offense or giving up a lay up on defense and some bad moments in pick and roll defense, but overall, you’re seeing him take incremental improvements rather than severe regression.

    I wonder what the thought process is to this. Is it a gradual thing where they want Fultz’s body to adjust to the minutes load and they’ll increase his minutes by increments after a number of games pass with no effects on Fultz? Obviously, I don’t think anyone has the answer, and taking Fultz slow is probably the right thing, but man, once he gets into that 33 MPG/ legit starter minutes area, I think he could explode.

    Not to get into the 1,000th Bamba vs Birch argument, but I don’t think Birch has earned the start either—based upon the two games played without Vuc, you could argue Bamba’s been better. I think it just comes down to who Clifford trusts more

    Bamba had maybe his best game of the season. Other than that, I’m not sure

    We’ve just been terrible offensively this half... 25 points in a half is crazy bad.
