Ross had 25 points (6-10 FG, 5-9 3PT, 8-10 FT) in 23 minutes off the bench in Sunday's win over the Kings. Ross accounted for five of Orlando's 18 made threes in what quickly turned into a blowout victory. High-volume three-point shooting has long been Ross's calling card, but he also worked his way to the line a season-high 10 times Sunday. Ross's eight made free throws were also a season-best.
Ross posted 14 points (3-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT) and one rebound in 16 minutes during Wednesday's 99-90 scrimmage loss to the Clippers. While Ross struggled from the field, he was able to redeem himself by being aggressive and getting to the free-throw line, knocking down all of his freebies. He'll continue to be a crucial piece for the Magic as a microwave scorer. Ross was on fire in the final 10 games before the season's hiatus, averaging 22.2 points on 15.4 shots, 4.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.0 steals in 30.5 minutes.
Ross finished with 24 points (8-19 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two boards, one assist, and two blocks in 31 minutes of a 120-115 win against Memphis on Tuesday. Ross came off the bench to lead his team in scoring thanks to a high-volume effort. His role off the bench didn't affect his total playing time as he routinely is hitting 30 minutes per game on the floor.
Ross posted 35 points (12-18 FG, 8-10 3Pt, 3-5 FT) during Wednesday's 116-113 loss to the Heat. Ross lived up to his nickname of the Human Torch on Wednesday, dropping a season-high 35 points on the back of a season-high eight three-pointers. While he somehow managed to rack up no other stats besides one turnover, the effort was undoubtedly great and helped keep the Magic afloat against the favored Heat. Only 11 other players this season have hit at least eight threes in a road game. Across the past seven contests, Ross is averaging 23.7 points on 16.4 shots, plus 4.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 30.0 minutes.
Ross scored 23 points (7-15 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 5-5 FT) while adding five rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes off the bench during Monday's 130-107 loss to the Trail Blazers. It's the third straight game and the sixth time in his last nine contests in which Ross has hit 20 or more points. The 29-year-old wing is averaging 19.7 points, 4.4 boards, 3.6 threes, 1.8 assists and 1.2 steals over that stretch, and if he continues producing at that pace to close out the regular season, it would go a long way toward securing a playoff spot for the Magic.
