*Editor’s Note: Statistics and rankings are current as of this writing, on Wednesday, February 15th,. Numbers may vary slightly entering games on Thursday, March 16th.
The loss to the Spurs was a bit surprising and reflected the paradox of the Magic — the young squad’s tendency is to raise their level of play against the elite teams and lose focus (and games) versus the lower tier.
It’s a matter of growth and development and something head coach Jamahl Mosley has navigated fairly well this season although clearly there are still ample lessons to learn and correct.
Offensively the Magic average 111.6 points per game which rank 27th while they shoot 47.1% from the field and 34.8% from the perimeter with the latter two categories ranking 18th and 23rd.
Defensively, the Magic hold opponents to 114.6 points per game which ranks 17th, and limit them to 47.9% from the field and 35.3% from the perimeter which ranks 20th and 10th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Jonathan Isaac (OUT for season— torn left adductor/surgery )
Clearly, the Suns will be significantly better when Kevin Durant returns. During his absence Phoenix has lost to three elite teams and what’s stood out is the lack of depth on the club.
Phoenix averages 113.2 points per game ranking 19th while shooting 46.7% from the field and 37.6% from the perimeter ranking 23rd and seventh overall.
Defensively opponents score 111.4 points ranking fourth-best. Meanwhile, they limit opponent shooting to 46.5% from the field and 35.9% from the perimeter ranking fifth and 15th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Landry Shamet PG (OUT indefinitely — ankle)
- Kevin Durant, SF (OUT — knee- MCL Sprain)
