|Nikola Vucevic: Near double-double in loss|
Vucevic scored 29 points (10-21 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 7-7 FT) to go along with nine rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal across 36 minutes in Wednesday's 115-112 loss to Atlanta.
The Scoop: It was a tough loss for the Magic, as they led by 19 at the break thanks to 18 first-half points from Vucevic. The center has been fantastic throughout the first half of the season, but he's really picked up his scoring of late. Over his last seven games, Vucevic has averaged 29.6 points, 11.6 rebounds and 4.9 assists. The next stop for Vucevic is his second All-Star Game -- a well-deserved honor for the veteran center, who's averaging 24.6 points, 11.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists on the season.
