Vegas Over/Under: 33.5
Fromal’s Record Projection: 31-51 The Bet: Under with confidence that is marginal Throughout the 2016-17 campaign, the Orlando Magic created 32.8 percent of the three-point attempts, which abandoned them ahead of only the Oklahoma City Thunder (32.7 percent). They also took just 26.1 treys per contest, once again finishing in the league’s bottom half (No. 16).
These amounts are not conducive to success in today’s NBA, which places more and more of an emphasis on shooting beyond the rainbow each year.
So the Magic addressed their flaw by adding the players, most of whom struggled at 2016-17:
Marreese Speights: 37.2 percent on 3.4 efforts per game for the Los Angeles Clippers
Jonathan Isaac: 34.8 percent on 2.8 attempts per game for the Florida State Seminoles (using a shorter arc)
Shelvin Mack: 30.8 percentage on 2.2 efforts per game for the Utah Jazz
Jonathon Simmons: 29.4 percent on 1.3 attempts 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, but the enduring logjam that is frontcourt of the team could make it tough for him to make too many minutes.
So why are we supposed to think the Magic will win more games this year and hit on the over?
