Regular Season... 20.7 PPG... 59.9% FG... 59.0% FTs... 14.2 REBs... 2.1 BLKs

Keyon Dooling..... 7.6 PPG.... 40.0% FG... 35.7% 3 PT... 83.3% FT... 0.4 REBs
Regular Season.... 8.1 PPG... 46.8% FGs... 33.8% 3 PT... 84.5% FT... 1.4 REBs
Comment... Down noticeably in PPG, FG%, and rebounds

TEAM................... 104.0 PPG... 99.4 PA... 47.2% FG... 32.4% 3 PT... 45.4 REBs... 5.4 STLs... 5.2 BLKs... 19.6/13.8 AST/TO

Regular Season... 104.5 PPG... 99.0 PA... 47.4% FG... 38.6% 3 PT... 42.0 REBs... 6.3 STLs... 4.1 BLKs... 20.8/14.3 AST/TO

Comment.. 3 PT shooting is down significantly, but rebounds and blocks are up significantly while turnovers are down slightly. Holding a good offensive team in Toronto to just 99.4 PPG in a 5 game series in an accomplishment.

If the Magic, especially Lewis and Turkoglu, can improve their 3 PT FG shooting against the Pistons, and Howard can improve his FT shooting, and maintain their other statistics from the first round against Toronto, especially their good defense, the Magic will have a good chance of upsetting the Pistons. Granted, the Pistons pose tougher matchups for the Magic, though.

    Thank you for the Magic's comparative stats of regular season and play-offs. Could you spare the time to do a comparison between Magic and Pistons, preferably on the regular season stats since Detroit-Philadelphia's series was sort of an aberration?
