Rashard Lewis Must Be A Huge Angela Bassett Fan

Seriously though, what’s love got to do, got to do with it?

Orlando Magic forward Rashard Lewis, on his official blog on Yardbarker, details in an entry published today how he has broken out of his slump in recent games. In the Magic’s last three games, the 12-year veteran is averaging 22.7 points per game while shooting at a 59% clip from the field and an amazing 52.4% from three-point range.

How? Like Stella, Rashard is getting his groove back, of course.

I’ve kinda gotten my groove back these last three games against San Antonio, Miami and Philly. I went through a little rough stretch there where I wasn’t getting the ball much but I’ve tried to mix things up and be more aggressive of late. Rather than sitting back and waiting I’m out there aggressively seeking out shots. I’m driving more, I’m getting to the foul line a little more and I’m posting up harder. And of course, my 3-ball is still there plenty in games.

With the Magic sitting in first place in the Southeast and the division rival (and second place) Atlanta Hawks on the schedule tonight, how Lewis got is groove back is immaterial, it’s simply a good thing that he did. I suppose we should expect more of the same from him tonight, but at the same time, I will not be Waiting to Exhale, if you catch my drift.
