Evan Fournier made 8-of-14 field goals and 6-of-12 free throws on Friday, scoring 26 points with a season-high nine assists, four rebounds and just one turnover in 36 minutes.
The result was a tough overtime loss in Indiana, with Fournier missing a potential game-winner at the final buzzer (on the heels of a missed 3-pointer with 20 seconds remaining in OT). Michael Carter-Williams (left foot) was a scratch tonight despite being questionable prior to the game, so he'll have a chance to return Sunday vs. the Hornets. His return would shift some playmaking duties away from Fournier, but that's of limited concern since Orlando clearly needs Fournier's scoring to take pressure off Nikola Vucevic. Fire him up wherever you roster him. Jan 22 10:17 pm (EST)
