“To be honest, I did not even expect to be extended,” Fournier told Yahoo. “I had no pressure about that. If there was something good, I will take it. If not, I can wait until the summer. I don’t have to worry about it and make the wrong decision. I have confidence in myself and the season that I’ll have. The contract will take care of itself. “You can’t go on the court and think about a deal. You must be focused and you must have the right mindset.”
And now, Fournier’s skills and size – his shooting, craftiness and 6-foot-7 frame – have synchronized with his mind to make him the Magic’s leading scorer. “I have to keep working on this challenge of being a top option, one I have to accept to try to lead the team and go back to the playoffs,” Fournier told Yahoo Sports. “My goal is never to be a No. 1 option. I just want to play as good as I can, and help Orlando go to the playoffs and have a great season. I don’t think about any numbers or stats.
Asked on Friday if he got much feedback from people in his native France following two of the best games of his NBA career, Fournier cracked: “You have new friends.’’ Fournier pumped in a career-best 30 points in Tuesday’s defeat of New Orleans and he came back a night later and scored another 29 points against Houston. Included in the performance against the Rockets, Fournier drilled two clutch free throws with 1.1 seconds remaining to tie the game and force overtime and he also limited star guard James Harden to six of 22 shooting with his defense.
