NBA Saturday Night: Magic Edition
It was not the most exciting evening for Magic fans tuned in to see All-Star Saturday Night. Ryan Anderson struggled in his first appearance in the 3-point shoot out and was eliminated in the first round. He had a chance to advance but missed the final moneyball.
Ryan called it the “longest minute of his life” and while being appreciative of the opportunity, was clearing ready for it to be over. 5th place is better than 6th.
Team Orlando did not fare very well in the Shooting Stars competition either. They fared very TERRIBLY in fact. The team of Jameer Nelson, Dennis Scott and Marie Ferdinand-Harris put up the worst score of the night with a 1:04 total time. Only 26.3 seconds behind the winning New York team. The good news is that Dennis Scott wasn’t eliminated for trying to eat the basketball as had been earlier predicted.
