On the edge of elimination, Magic players are still desolate and desperate on what has been simple to see for anyone following Orlando’s opening playoff series against the 5th-seeded Atlanta Hawks. Odds.
The Magic’s main problem: they can’t shoot the ball and score. Magic guard J.J. Reddick expressed in a press conference that it has been the wrong moment in time to be in a combined shooting collapse.
Now in front of a 3-1 shortfall in the best-of-seven series, time has just about run out for the Magic to get rid of their shooting despair. History is not on Orlando’s side as there have only been eight teams in NBA history that have won a best-of-seven series after falling into a 3-1 gap. Basketball odds.
The problem is that the Magic have hardly shown sparks of the team that averaged 99 points per night during the regular season and was in the top of the league in both field goal and 3-point shooting percentage.
Aside from 7-foot center Dwight Howard, who is leading all playoff scorers averaging 32.2 points per game and shooting 66 percent from the floor, the rest of the team has been lacking everything.
For starters Jameer Nelson, Hedo Turkoglu and Redick are all shooting less than 35% from the court and none more than 23% from the 3-point line. Orlando should expect a miracle if they want to advance to the next round. Basketball spreads.
