Nikola Vucevic and Aaron Gordon shot a combined 9-of-27 on Monday against the Hornets, with Vucevic scoring 10 with two blocks, two steals, eight boards and five assists while Gordon added 14 points, a steal, block and six boards.
The Magic scored over 100 points in their last eight games before Monday so tonight’s 94-104 loss was a poor performance for the young squad. Gordon is having a career year and even with this game he’s been on fire over his last eight games, returning top-15 value in 8-cat leagues. As a result of Gordon’s great year Vucevic has had his boards fall to a shade under nine a game from over 10 a game last year. That said both players are outperforming their draft slots and as of now owners have no reason to consider moving either guy.
