Diener goes for 34

Update: I'm sure this article is going in Mrs. Dieners scrapbook. It compares Travis favorably to Steve Nash. Nothing like summer hyperbole and good for Travis all the same...

ESPN.com - NBA - Orlando, Day 4: Wright's 28 points lift Nets: "Diener and Walsh pace Magic past Bulls
Behind the hot shooting hands of Travis Diener and Matt Walsh, the Orlando Magic notched their second victory of the 2006 Pepsi Pro Summer League, downing the Chicago Bulls 93-87 on Thursday evening. Diener tallied the biggest point total of any scorer so far this week, pouring in 34 on 11-for-16 shooting from the field while hitting on 7-of-10 shots from behind the arc.

Walsh ended the contest with three treys and 20 points, while Shipp chipped in 17 for Orlando. Both teams shot an identical 50.8 percent for the game, but the difference came from three-point land, where the Magic hit on 13-of-24 attempts (54.2 percent).

Diener and James Augustine sealed the victory, combining to hit all six of their charity shots down the stretch to maintain the lead."
Diener seems to be taking advantage of the Summer league opportunity.

    The Magic 13 of 24 on 3 pt FG attempts? WOW!! Diener is a heck of a shooter, no question. And good for Matt Walsh for playing so well.

    Otis is going to have some tough decisions later on deciding who is going to fill out the Magic roster... which is a nice thing to worry about and shows just how much depth the Magic have.
