This Wednesday, January 4, we will have an NBA showdown when the Orlando Magic welcome the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Amway Center at 19:00 EST.
The Thunder come into this game after a big win over the Boston Celtics 150-117 while the Magic are coming off a heartbreaking loss to Washington 119-100.
The Magic are coming off a tough game against Washington where their offense simply could not penetrate the defense to score the points needed to win the game.
Their offense averages 109 points per game and is led by Paolo Banchero with his 20 points per game, followed by Franz Wagner with 19 points and Wendell Carter Jr. with another 16.
Defensively, Orlando allows 113 points per game, allowing their opponents to shoot 47% from the floor and 34% from the three-point line.
Orlando’s defense is not playing bad but the offense will have to rethink things for this game if they want to beat the Thunder.
The Thunder on the other hand are coming off a 150-117 thrashing of the Boston Celtics where the offense was led by Josh Gidey with his 25 points for the win and Jaylin Williams with his 7 rebounds and 6 assists.
Oklahoma averages 115 points per game being 45% from the floor and 34% from the three line. The offense is led by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and his staggering 30 points per game, followed by Josh Giddey with 15 points and Luguentz Dort with another 14.
The defense allows 116 points per game and they have a hard time stopping them from shooting from the three-point line.
The Thunder have proven to be a better team on both sides of the court and are coming off a real win against the Celtics while the Magic have been very inconsistent and their offense seems to lack potency so I’m going with the Thunder.
