With the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup coming up, many basketball fans are preparing to see if Team USA will be able to come home with the gold. However, in the meantime, we get to see teams Blue and White duke it out. One notable player from Team White, is Orlando Magic player, Jonathan Isaac.
Isaac, who has started to develop during the offseason has started to see significant strides. Examples of his progress include having a consistent 3-point shot, a much larger presence on offense and also being much more confident on the court.
When viewing his performance from the Blue versus White game, it’s easy to see that Isaac struggled a bit early in the first half. He made minor mistakes, but corrected them later when Team White was on offense.
What really changed things for Isaac during the game was his confidence. During the second half, he was able to play with more confidence. For example, Isaac was able to drain a three in transition. When Team White stole the ball, Isaac was on the break. He was able to create some quick space which allowed him to drain a three.
What is clear about this, is that if Isaac can stay like this for the regular season, his presence could help elevate the Magic’s position when the playoffs start.
Fortunately for Isaac, he is entering his third season. This means that he still has time to grow his game and gain muscle. Those are two things that many fans and commentators have noticed he has improved on over these past two seasons. Otherwise, if Isaac doesn’t show continuous improvement, some may feel that Isaac would be a player whose never reached his full potential.
