Vegas Over/Under: 33.5
Fromal’s Record Projection: 31-51 The Bet: Beneath with confidence Throughout the 2016-17 effort, the Orlando Magic made 32.8 percent of the three-point attempts, which abandoned them ahead of only the Oklahoma City Thunder (32.7 percent). They also took only 26.1 treys per contest, once again finishing in the league’s bottom half (No. 16).
These numbers aren’t conducive to success in today’s NBA, which puts more and more of a focus on shooting beyond the rainbow each year.
So their most glaring flaw was addressed by the Magic by incorporating the players, many of whom fought from downtown at 2016-17:
Marreese Speights: 37.2 percent on 3.4 attempts per game for the Los Angeles Clippers
Jonathan Isaac: 34.8 percent on 2.8 attempts per game for the Florida State Seminoles (with a shorter arc)
Shelvin Mack: 30.8 percent on 2.2 attempts per game for the Utah Jazz
Jonathon Simmons: 29.4 percent on 1.3 efforts per game for the San Antonio Spurs
Adreian Payne: 20.0 percent on 0.8 attempts per game for the Minnesota Timberwolves
Speights’ presence might help, however, the team frontcourt logjam could make it hard for him to earn too many moments.
So why are we supposed to believe the Magic hit on the over and will win five more games this year?
