Stan Van Gundy blasts center Daniel OrtonPosted by Inside Hoops
Utah Jazz point guard Devin Harris was tired of seeing 3-pointers drop for the Orlando Magic on Saturday night.
He made sure one at the end of regulation didn’t have a chance as he stepped up big against Jameer Nelson.
Harris’ block kept Utah alive, and in the end it was the Jazz draining 3s to secure a 117-107 overtime victory over Orlando…
Despite the missing pieces, Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy ripped into his team.
“We just cannot guard, we cannot,” Van Gundy said. “I don’t think that our guys are not trying, but we cannot guard anyone. Our defense is disturbing to say the least.”
Van Gundy also had harsh words for backup center Daniel Orton, who contributed only two points off the bench.
“Daniel gave us nothing,” Van Gundy said. “He went for every shot fake, he fouled every time. He didn’t even give us minutes that we needed to give our starters some rest. Our lack of depth was an absolute huge factor. Those guys ran out of gas at the end.”
