So how did the Orlando Magic win last night with a combined with a combined 26 points from Dwight, Ryan Anderson & Jameer Nelson? Former dunk champion Jason Richardson was showing off his long range skills as he hit 9 of 11 3 pointers against the Bucks that only made 9 out of 22 3 pointers. 4 of his bombs came during a 14-0 4th quarter run that helped them come back from being down by 10.
“I’m a competitor and I love when people talk trash to me. That’s just part of the game. But when you go past the line, like I thought the guy did, I had to show him I wasn’t. He said that in the first quarter, so I was thinking about that since then. I made one shot in the first quarter and I came in here (the locker room at halftime) and thought about what he said. I thought we were playing with no energy. I said, ‘Just go out there and play.’ I got into the zone and shots were falling.”
— Richardson, on a fan’s comment that he was washed up as his second-half motivation.
