Orlando Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu is having a great season and received consideration for the All-Star reserves. But not making the team seems to have made Turk play even better.

The AP reports: Hedo Turkoglu has put together perhaps the best stretch of his career over his past nine games, averaging 23.0 points, 6.4 rebounds and 6.3 assists. Turkoglu had his first career triple-double - 13 points, 12 rebounds and 13 assists - in Orlando’s loss to Dallas.
