Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Records double-double in win Monday

Vucevic (Achilles) scored 26 points (10-23 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT) with 13 rebounds, two assists and one steal across 36 minutes in Monday's 112-109 overtime win over the 76ers.

Vucevic led all scorers in the Magic's big comeback win Monday night, and he showed no signs of pain after being held out of Sunday's practice when his the Achilles he had issues with earlier in the month flared up again. The fact that Vucevic appeared pain-free should be a relief for fantasy owners as the Magic center has been red hot as of late. He recorded back-to-back double-doubles and is now averaging 19.4 points and 12.4 rebounds over his last five games.
