    Magic Vs 76ers - Weds., November 13th at 7:00 PM

    Augustin played an extra three minutes. 21 for Fultz, 27 for Augustin. For Fultz and Cliff, the criticism should be usage. There’s no reason for Fournier to monopolize pick and rolls with the starting line up, and for DJ to run exponentially more pick and rolls in roughly the same minutes than Fultz. The rotation is fine when DJ’s providing offense

    Not really. I don’t think I’ve seen him put in one pick and roll though. He just carries the ball up and passes it off to Fournier to just stand in the corner 99% of the time

    I think it’s because MCW extended his foot into Richardson when he had room to land short of his ankle. I still disagree with it since it was just MCW trying to make an effort play and it was a natural landing, but I think that was the refs rationale

    Biggest issues right now is turnovers and defense. Not exactly playing like a Clifford team

    Gordon telegraphs his drives so much

    I feel like Gordon would be a part of these talks in order for them to make sense.

    Jeez, everything’s going in for both us and Indiana

    Kirilenko had a couple of years in that 1.5 steals, 3 blocks a game territory. Other than AK, though, nobody else comes to mind. I think Isaac has the potential to be better offensively as well

    Magic Vs. Grizzlies - Friday, Nov. 8th at 7:00 P.M.

    He hasn’t. Gordon just hasn’t been very involved in the offense with the bench lineup, for whatever reason. It’s mostly just pick and rolls with Augustin that aren’t resulting in anything consistently productive. I’d like to see Gordon get more opportunities with this lineup

    Magic Vs. Grizzlies - Friday, Nov. 8th at 7:00 P.M.

    The bench unit kills us. Completely stagnant offensively. Not having a good Ross, or a Ross at all has hurt them, but they’ve flipped the score two games in a row. Gave up the 28-6 run vs the Mavericks, and now gave away an 11 point lead away. I don’t know how, but we gotta find a way for that bench lineup to not be completely inept offensively

    By the same token, Clifford should’ve called a timeout. If he does, we’re not having this discussion

    Magic @ Mavericks - Wednesday, Nov. 6th at 8:30 P.M.

    I mean, if we’re being real, we lost in the third quarter when we gave up that 26-8 run. Part of that is on Clifford and rotations, and part of that is on the bench unit just getting dominated.

    Also, I think Cliff really needs to start trusting Fultz. Call this favoritism or whatever, but he’s the player I trust the most in the pick and roll. I would’ve put Fultz in the pick and roll down the stretch, rather than Clifford opting for him to stand in the corner

    Magic @ Mavericks - Wednesday, Nov. 6th at 8:30 P.M.

    We’ve been there in multiple games, and have faded in the final two minutes. A lot of winning close games comes down to luck, but we’ve gotta find ways to start pulling these games out

    Isaac out here getting 10 stocks
  16. 3rd Quarter Collapse

    Magic @ Thunder - Tuesday, Nov. 5th at 8:00 P.M.

    I think the question is how much of this is regression and how much of this is just cold shooting. I don’t think we’ll sustain this cold shooting, but if Ross and Vuc both have major regressions, that kind of hamstrings our team

    I think you want to tank

    Is Milwaukee not in tune with today’s NBA? I get being critical, but I think it’s obvious we’re molding the team with the same philosophy Milwaukee uses. Fultz, Isaac, Bamba— it might not work out, but the philosophy and logic of WeltHam is in tune with the modern NBA

    Sure, but firing? It’s game 6 lol

    Is that a serious question? Lol

    Don’t like that shot from Vucevic. Gotta get something higher percentage at this point in the game
  22. 3rd Quarter Collapse

    Magic Vs. Bucks - Friday, Nov. 1st at 7:00 P.M.

    The best lineup is Fultz-Fournier-Gordon-Isaac-Vucevic. Our starting lineup currently has a negative net rating. Augustin-MCW-Ross-Aminu-Bamba currently has a positive net rating. We’re a better team when Fultz is starting— not necessarily because of Fultz being better than DJ, but because of how each 5 players play together. Fultz-MCW-Ross-Aminu-Bamba is -30.4. Switching Augustin in for Fultz, the lineups net rating is 3.6. The difference is too drastic for us not to make the switch. You don’t even have to change the minutes for each other since they’re typically splitting the minutes down the middle, 24 a piece. Just maximize the minutes of those two lineups by starting Fultz and having DJ lead the 2nd unit, rather than continuing to play two bad lineups

    Magic Vs. Bucks - Friday, Nov. 1st at 7:00 P.M.

    And that’s pretty much the issue in the game. After the 2nd unit came in, the ball movement stopped and our defense started to really struggle with their pick and rolls. They blew the game open with their ability to get into the paint, and our offense became entirely stagnant. Milwaukee is moving the ball and not playing iso-ball. We’re stagnant offensively and bad defensively
  24. 3rd Quarter Collapse

    Magic Vs. Bucks - Friday, Nov. 1st at 7:00 P.M.

    I don’t think that’s the issue. The issue is that Milwaukee is getting into the paint and moving the ball, resulting in open 3’s. Obviously, a team shooting efficiently from three hurts, but the real issue is allowing Milwaukee to get any shot they want rather than any scheme defect

    Ross destroys our ball movement
