The Magic this week
The Orlando Magic are currently 47-21 (27-7 home, 20-14 road), in first place in the SE 3 1/2 games ahead of Atlanta and hold the second seed in the East 5 1/2 games behind number one seed Cleveland (52-15), 3 1/2 games ahead of third seed Atlanta (42-23) and 4 games ahead of fourth seed Boston (42-24). The Magic also hold the third best record in the NBA behind the Cavaliers and LA Lakers (49-18), and ahead of Dallas (45-22) and Denver (45-22).
The Magic are averaging 101.8 ppg (10th) and allowing 95.1 ppg (4th). They have an offensive rating (points per 100 possessions) of 109.9 (9th) and a defensive rating (points allowed per 100 possessions) of 102.7 (5th).
Last season after 68 games, the Magic were 50-18.
The schedule for the Magic this week:
Wed. Mar. 17th: San Antonio (39-25, 15-15 road, 8-2 last 10 games)
Thu. Mar. 18th: at Miami (35-32, 20-14 home, 6-4 last 10 games)
The Magic only play two games this week, but both are tough games against teams who have been playing well recently. The Magic are coming off a disappointing home loss to Charlotte to break their 8 game winning streak. They have little if any chance to catch the Cavaliers for the number one seed, but will be looking to solidify their hold on the second seed in the East.
