Shelvin Mack scored five points with six assists, three rebounds and one steal vs. the Bulls on Monday. He played 26 minutes compared to 22 for D.J. Augustin and nearly helped the Magic fight their way back from 18 points down. This was his second game in a row outplaying Augustin and he also closed this one, so he's worth keeping an eye on in case he steals the starting job.

Shelvin Mack ended up with 19 points over 28 minutes in Saturday's 111-104 loss against Milwaukee. Mack posted a season-high in assists and his first double-double of the season. It was also the sixth double-double of his NBA career. D.J. Augustin didn't do much in a starting role, so Mack had the hot hand and was given a few more minutes. He has some short-term fantasy appeal in deeper leagues while Aaron Gordon (hip) is on the mend.

Shelvin Mack scored nine points with one rebound three assists, one steal and no turnovers in 22 minutes against the Hawks on Thursdya. He still saw some overlap with D.J. Augustin, so Mack should still be able to carve out a role in the 24-26 minute range most nights at least until Aaron Gordon (hip) gets back. DJA is a better add in all leagues, but Mack could be a sneaky player to add in 16-team leagues.

Orlando coach Frank Vogel praised Shelvin Mack for his recent play off the bench. ``Being comfortable has allowed him to go out and just play his game. He’s not forcing it and he’s the ultimate, `play-within-himself’ player," Vogel said. "He’s never going to force it and he looks really good of late. He’s a big reason why our offense has been clicking the way it has of late.’’ The Magic have been shorthanded lately and have been using more two-PG lineups. He's scored in double digits in three straight games with 13 total assists in that span, but maybe the Magic are just showcasing his expiring contract for a trade.

Shelvin Mack came off the bench for 15 points, two 3-pointers, six rebounds and four assists, and hit all five of his shots in Tuesday's loss to the Rockets. Additionally, D.J. Augustin hit 4-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 13 points, three rebounds and four assists in the 114-107 loss. Elfrid Payton was benched with Mack and DJA's "hot hands" given as the reason, so we'll have to see what happens on Wednesday night against the Lakers. Chances are Payton will be back out there and get his 30 or so minutes, meaning Mack and Augustin are simply guys to keep an eye on in case Payton lost a grip on his job tonight. James Harden's 60-point triple-double just might have done some damage to Payton's short-term future in Orlando, although it also may not have hurt him at all.

Mack totaled 15 points (5-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, and four assists in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 114-107 loss to the Rockets. Mack was on fire from the field, pitching in a near-perfect effort with just one missed free throw and one turnover. He tallied season highs in scoring and rebounding, and has now seen double-digit minutes in five consecutive contests while shooting a combined 18-of-24 from the field. With fellow backup point guards Mack and D.J. Augustin performing at such a high level, Magic coach Frank Vogel opted to play Elfrid Payton just 18 minutes.
