Wendell Carter Jr. double-doubled in a win vs. his former team on Wednesday with 19 points, 12 boards, four dimes, two steals, one block and one turnover in 31 minutes.
The Magic were riding a six-game losing streak coming into today's game, allowing the opposing team to score 123.7 points per game over that stretch, but they did a much better job defensively today — holding Chicago to just 106 points. WCJ talked about the Magic needing to ramp up their defensive intensity prior to the game, saying, “We’ve just got to learn how to win. We’ve got to understand, as a team, defense is what wins games. Including myself, we get too caught up in the offensive side of the ball... We can’t allow leak-outs, straight-line drives, nobody helping, giving them easy points.” He lived up to his word tonight, and his team got the win. Apr 14 10:47 pm (EST)
