The Magic need this Hedo Turkoglu, and even more of him soon.
Turkoglu has been up and down since returning to Orlando via a mid-December trade.
He has been on a roll of late. But there have been bad shooting nights, poor shot selection and high turnover rates — nights that mystify the Magic.
Turk's troubles sometimes are reflected by a famous quote in golf: "The toughest six inches in golf is the space between your ears."
He has all the skills, but on some nights, he plays away from his strengths. Even after all this time in the league, the 6-10 Turk still needs to be reminded to keep on the path that has brought him success.
"He's sometimes his own worst enemy, trying to predetermine what he's going to do and not taking in what the defense gives him," coach Stan Van Gundy said after Turk posted 20 points and 13 assists against the woeful Nets in Friday night's win.
