Vince Brings the Insanity Back

Posted by mvetack on February 9, 2010

Monday night there were just three games on the NBA slate and the opening act would be the best of them all.  After surrendering 70 points in the first half to the Chris Paul-less Hornets, the Magic conducted a fierce comeback lead by number 15 Vince Carter.  Lets rewind to about a week ago.

It is the end of January and Vince Carter is wrapping up his worst month of his basketball career.  Averaging under 9 points a game and shooting just 28 percent, Vince is making people second look the Vince for Hedo trade even more than they had been.  J.J. Redick is playing more minutes and is making a serious case in the eyes of fans to start over the All Star guard in Vince Carter.

Flashback to last night.  Following a win against the Celtics where Vince Carter lead his team with 20 points, Vince is looking pretty smooth again scoring 14 in the first half and looks on his way to another 20+ point performance.  As the third quarter begins, the Magic begin to get on a role and Vince regains his super stardom for at least this one night in February.  16 points later and the third quarter is over, Vince has 30, and the Magic have cut the 15 point deficit down to 8.  The fourth quarter only gets better for the Magic and Carter.  Vince begins to knock down shot after shot after shot and puts down 18 in the fourth including the game tying three and some clutch free throws down the stretch.

Vince ends the game with 48 points, 3 off his career high of 51, on 19 of 27 shooting and just 4 free throws and the Magic win the game 123-117.  On a side not Chris Paul’s back up Darren Collison put together a nice night scoring 27 to go with 9 assists 3 rebounds and 4 steals.
