Orlando Magic vs Phoenix Suns (By: Miyagi)
Vucevic welcomed his first child a week ago, was given a leave of absence against the Spurs, but he has not been good since his return to action. Against the Bulls, he had an average performance with 19p, 19reb, 4as (42% FG) but he was poor in his last game against the Heat (and Whiteside): 8p, 7r (25% FG).
Ayton has been amazing in the offense recently but that doesn't erase the fact that his defense is a liability for the Suns and pretty much every Center with a 'bigger' role has caused him a lot of trouble but especially crafty players like Vucevic consistently do a lot of damage against the Suns.
Vucevic has one of the easiest matchups in this game, probably the easiest for his team, and there are high expectations of him, at least offensively. In his first meeting of the season with the Suns, he scored 25 of his team's 99 points and he is expected to carry his, recently struggling, side offensively once again.
