Davis: Vucevic Doing Well; ‘Lot to learn’
So far this season, (Nikola) Vucevic has started every game for the Magic and is averaging just under 30 minutes per game. With seven double-doubles already, his impact has been surprising. Unlike many young players that suddenly get an increase in minutes, Vucevic’s productivity hasn’t declined and his rookie per 36 minute production has directly translated to his stats as a starter. Through 18 games this season, Vucevic is averaging 9.9 points, 9.0 rebounds and 1.3 blocks.
“He has a lot to learn,” Glen Davis said. “[But] right now he is playing really well. He is playing the way we need him to play.”
