|Lavoy Allen, PF 31 MIN | 3-8 FG | 0-0 FT | 7 REB | 2 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 6 PTS | -3Man, this guy has been bad. He struggled to find his way again tonight — half of his shots were from outside despite his consistent inability to make shots from mid-range.|
|Evan Turner, SF 42 MIN | 7-14 FG | 2-2 FT | 11 REB | 8 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 17 PTS | -6ET had a productive game tonight. We rarely see him playing modestly and not trying to do too much, but we were treated to conservate Turner tonight. 17 points on 14 shots was refreshing after his 8-26 effort in Indiana and tonight was just the sixth time this season that Turner took under 20 shots. He took advantage of his matchup against the reboundingly challenged Aron Afflalo efficiently as well.|
|Michael Carter-Williams, PG 40 MIN | 9-21 FG | 2-2 FT | 4 REB | 3 AST | 4 STL | 1 BLK | 2 TO | 23 PTS | -11Orlando ran a ton of pick and rolls with MCW as the subject, and as Malik Rose noted, he struggled to fight his slender, 185 lbs. frame through the screens. Aside from that, while he struggled to shoot the ball in the second half, he continued to impress defensively with four steals and remained poised and aggressive down the stretch.|
|James Anderson, SG 34 MIN | 2-9 FG | 0-0 FT | 5 REB | 6 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK | 3 TO | 4 PTS | -12Yikes. Anderson maintained his reputation as a hit-or-miss guy. He followed up a three-game stretch of 45% shooting with two straight cringe-worthy 22% performances (6-27 combined). Brett Brown has got to be missing Tony Wroten.|
|Thaddeus Young, PF 28 MIN | 9-15 FG | 6-11 FT | 8 REB | 0 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 26 PTS | -2You wouldn’t have known that Thad’s been absent from the team for over a week; he looked rejuvenated with the Wroten-less second unit. He scored 26 points in 28 minutes, shot 60%, got to the line as always and somehow made two threes. Welcome back, Thad.|
By the Numbers
Tonight, Thaddeus Young made 25% of the amount of threes he made last season. He was 2-2 against Orlando, and 1-8 in ’12-’13.
