In the cabin, the teammates of Franz Wagner did just cool and then exploded as the young Berlin in the most spectacular Dunk of his NBA career. With loud roar and a lot of splashing water, the professionals of Orlando Magic celebrated the 20-year-old for the exclamation point as a final point of outstanding performance with 28 points at the 115: 97 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. I ve ever thought. But I ve never thought in my life, said Wagner of the German Press Agency after the strong performance on Monday evening (local time).
NBA-Twitter celebrated Wagner following clips and statistics – the great recognition within the team Wagner has cemented with the performance in his first careful game in the best basketball league in the world anyway. This is a proof of his high basketball IQ and his knowledge about this game, coach Jamahl Mosley praised the NBA newcomer. He s a selfless player and will always try to make the right decision. If the defense lures him in the trap, he will play the ball. He is not an egoist player at all, he wants to move the ball. A result: the pass to Brother Moritz Wagner, who in turn could dry completely free.
In the team with his four years older brother, Franz Wagner s development runs rapidly. Still in the training camp before the season he barely noticed observers, his statistics aroused no attention. But since the start of the season two weeks ago, the 2.08-meter slag felt better in every game has become better. He met five threes for the Timberwolves.
Just for young players like me, of course, this is a really cool situation, learning how to play in the NBA and also work on my game, but also to collect many minutes and get many chances, Wagner said over the overall Young team in Orlando. I think you can not learn better, I m very, very grateful for.
