There’s nothing more than Steve Clifford wants than to break the curse of losing basketball games to the Charlotte Hornets. As well as the Hornets have shot the ball from beyond the arc in the two meetings this season, Orlando has been equally worse. They’ve combined for 16 of 66 shooting three-pointers for (24.2%) which isn’t a formula for winning.
However, this seems to be a different Orlando team as they’ll look to go into the break with confidence; they’ve beaten Milwaukee by 20 points without Giannis Antetokounmpo, Atlanta by 16 and New Orleans by 30 points all on the road. The last five games Orlando has a (15.8) ppg win average which includes a home win over Minnesota. Orlando understands they don’t have a Kemba Walker to depend on in crucial situation to score the basketball, but they play tight defense.
In the past ten games, Orlando is fourth in scoring differential, only Milwaukee, Oklahoma City, and Golden State are better in the span. The fourth and final meeting between the teams will be in April. Orlando puts up (105.4) ppg which ranks 25th league-wide while they all opponents (107.2) ppg, 8th in the NBA. Center Nikola Vucevic paces the team with (20.6) ppg.
