19. Orlando Magic
It’s all about defense for the Magic, who rank 11th in the NBA. However, they’re 22nd in the NBA offense rankings, which doesn’t bode well for their chances of getting ahead of the Nets in the race for the 7th spot. In sum, this is going to cause them problems against top playoff opponents.
They’re also a combined 0-9 against playoff teams like Bucks, the Celtics, and the Raptors this season. That doesn’t bode well for their chances. Furthermore, they’re missing key personnel including Jonathan Isaac and Al-Farouq Aminu. This team seems more cursed than magical.
