Are the new guys playing tonight? 

Yes everyone except Gary Harris is playing tonight. Hopefully Cliff gives all our young guys plenty of burn. No reason to see Bacon, Ennis, and to a lesser extent Birch on the court for extended minutes.

I was really hoping we’d trade Khem, not because I don’t love his play and his hustle but because of this

Here’s What We Can Expect From Wendell Carter Jr.

by Josh Cohen
Posted: Mar 25, 2021

ORLANDO - Wendell Carter Jr.’s 2020-21 season high in scoring is 23, amassed against the Los Angeles Lakers on Jan. 8. Much of that game he was matched up against Marc Gasol, a player that gave the Orlando Magic fits, especially defensively, during his time with both the Memphis Grizzlies and Toronto Raptors.

That night at STAPLES Center, the 6-foot-10, 270-pound Carter, acquired by the Magic at the trade deadline on Thursday, showed what he’s capable of when the offense runs through him.

Impressive, perhaps more than anything else, were his short rolls. Since he’s a very good screener, Carter has no issue carving out space in mid-range pick-and-pop scenarios. This season, he’s shooting 53.5% between five and nine feet from the basket, well above the league average at his position.

Three times this season, he has accumulated five assists, including in a game against the Sacramento Kings. Prior to the 2018 NBA Draft, in which he was selected seventh overall by the Chicago Bulls, passing was considered one of his greatest strengths, unique to say about a big man.

One of his specialties is facilitating from the middle of the lane, significant considering usually the best 3-point looks in the NBA come off kickout deliveries. Especially under Steve Clifford, who preaches the importance of paint touches, Carter should increase his assists with the Magic and be an unselfish target in the paint where he can find open teammates along the perimeter.

MCW way out of control on offense with two turnovers and several bad shots over a 2-3 minute span.  No wonder Magic aren’t scoring this quarter.
