Vucevic and Carter Jr. duel in first matchup since trade, Bulls fall to Magic


Nikola Vucevic scored 29 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in his first matchup against his former team but Wendell Carter Jr. got the win as the Magic held off the Bulls 115-106.


You mean something like, "Sure we broke up our team and traded our best player to lose and we've lost six straight, the last two by 60 points combined, but no worries, now we've got the Bulls."


He finished with nine points in 28 minutes, but by the end of the game he seemed too exhausted to even contest a James Ennis three.


"Not that I told him not to be aggressive, but I think one of the things that was starting to happen with our team, at least in the Memphis game, I thought we got really, really Vooch and Zach heavy in some ways.


It's correct in theory, if not so much for immediacy with this Bulls team with so many players, especially the young ones, apparently suffering from the changes, demotions and finding their places with the additions.


The lottery destined Magic pushed their lead to 95-72 when LaVine seemed to acknowledge there wasn't much moving, cutting and successful other shooting going on.
