J.J. Redick was inserted into the starting lineup Tuesday, and he was scorching hot, going 9-for-10 from the field, 5-for-6 from deep and 3-for-4 from the line for 26 points. He added two rebounds and three assists in 37 minutes.
Redick is playing really well this season, averaging 14.6 points, 2.3 rebounds, 4.5 assists, .5 steals and .1 blocks with 89 3-pointers.
Arron Afflalo was ice cold, missing all four of his shots. Afflalo did grab nine rebounds, dish five assists and swipe a ball. But the goose egg was a disappointment. Afflalo is averaging 17.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3 assists, .7 steals and .2 blocks with 54 3-pointers on the season.
Redick is 73-percent owned in Yahoo leagues, and that number is likely to go up after tonight. But the Magic will need to find a way to keep both Redick and Afflalo involved.
