It seems like whenever the Hawks win a couple games and open the door for the Magic to fall down into the bottom spot in the Eastern Conference, the Magic manage to keep pace and stay ahead of Atlanta.
It happened again last week. Atlanta won a couple games but Orlando has won its last two. Both teams have 20 wins and Atlanta’s 44 losses are one more than the Magic’s total.
The Magic has won back-to-back home games agains the Pistons and Grizzlies. Aaron Gordon is back and healthy again, playing well. He scored 27 in the win over Detroit.
Evan Fournier continues to be extremely consistent, scoring 18 a night and rarely getting much more or much less than that average in any one particular game.
Nik Vucevic is also back and doing similar things as a 7′ center. He averages 17.4 and nine rebounds.
It’s honestly not a terrible nucleus but one that lacks a star and a playmaker, a playmaking star. If Orlando can find that in the draft, the rebuild may not be as far away as everyone suspects it is. Then again, they suspect it because “if’s” don’t usually become actuality in Orlando.
Donovan Mitchell scored another 27 points on Saturday. He has 21 games scoring at least 25 points in his first 60 games. The only rookies since 1992 who have had more 25 point games in an entire season were Shaq and Allen Iverson.
Mitchell has scored 20+ 32 times, 30+ six times and 40+ twice (source: Reddit). He’s averaging 19.9 on 44 percent shooting and 35 percent from three.
The Jazz is three games above .500 and continues to win. It is exactly two games back of Denver for the 8-seed in the Western Conference with the Clippers in between them.
FiveThirtyEight projects Utah to win 45 games, the Clippers to win 45 and Denver to win 46 but all it takes is one unexpected result in the last 19 games to swing that. Utah would be the most interesting 8-seed because of how well it’s been playing. It has beaten the Warriors recently, though is 0–4 against Houston this season.
