Raptors-Magic Postgame Locker Room Interviews

2012 December 29

The Magic were initially scheduled to have a day off for Sunday, but that goes out the window when you get your rears kicked in by 35 points. Orlando players talked like a guys that were beyond frustrated and humiliated with a 5-game losing streak against teams they should have beat in each case. Nice to see Hedo back, but the main problems now are point guard injuries and abysmal defense.

 

Ish Smith: “It’s not going to be easy. Coach Vaughn constantly says that. Dig down…we’ll look at the tape tomorrow, get better and move on to the next.”

 

Hedo Turkoglu: “I was nervous in the beginning, excited to get back and with my team.”

 

Arron Afflalo: “We’ve got to do our best to get back to the basics of defense, our principles. To kind of give us some type of stability.”

 

Andrew Nicholson: “I’m getting a better feel for the game now. It’s coming, it’s definitely still early.”
