I felt all right, think it was about right. It’ll get better the more I play, but I’m getting better every week. It’ll take some time, but I’ll get there.
On watching the game from the bench:
Very hard. At the same time, it’s all about patience. I’m going to have my turn. Right now while I’m not playing, I’m just trying to learning a little more and seeing how they’re playing. The only thing I can do is just sit back and watch and learn.
There’s no playoff but we’re trying to treat every game like a playoff game. There’s teams that we’re playing that are playoff seeds, but we’re trying to get better too.
Pistons 111-97 Magic
The Pistons win 111-97 over Magic. Jackson scores a triple-double ( 26 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists) for the team. Harris score 21 points for the Magic. Coach Van Gundy:
Reggie sort of had a tough start, but he started to attack (in the third quarter) and that really gets him going. When he’s playing laterally, east and west, he’s not as good. When he’s on the attack, he’s really good.
