Frank Vogel Rumors
“I think that’s what was special about his night — he wasn’t out there trying to play superhero,” coach Frank Vogel said. “He played within himself for the most part, and as a result he shot a high percentage.” Gordon had 40 points and 15 rebounds Wednesday to help Orlando end a nine-game losing streak with a 121-108 win over the struggling Oklahoma City Thunder. “I was just aggressive, taking opportunities, not passing anything up. If the open pass presented itself, then I was making the right read,” he said.
Vogel inserted Simmons into the starting five at shooting guard in place of Terrence Ross for Monday night’s loss to the Indiana Pacers. Vogel said he’s evaluating the lineups “game to game.” “But,” he added, “I would anticipate ‘Simms’ being in the starting lineup indefinitely, until I decide otherwise.”
