Terrence Ross finished with eight points, four assists and two boards on 3-of-7 from the field and 2-of-5 from deep in Monday’s loss to the Kings.
After a trade to the Magic Ross started out with a boom, but has since cooled down to what he was like while in a Raptor uniform. Over the last four games he has dropped out of the 250’s in ranking per game. Ouch! The athletic guard is still getting close to 30 min a game, but that has dropped from 33-35 he was getting right after the trade. Bottom line is he needs to start shooting better (34 percent over the last four) if he wants to keep his minutes and his starting job. We wouldn’t blame you if you dropped him for a hotter 3-point shooter on the wire, but he needs to be kept an eye on because his contributions in steals (1.1) and blocks (0.4) set him apart from other three point specialists.
