In the last 10 games (where Orlando has gone 2-8, mind you), the Magic have had an average offensive rating of 106.9. The team's offensive rating for the season is 103.2, good for 21st in the league. The Magic have had a below their average offensive rating in seven of the last 19 games. After the slow offensive start, the Magic have gotten their offense together. "I think that’s been the interesting part," Jacque Vaughn said in early January before Glen Davis' return. "We talked about Glen’s absence at the beginning and everyone was wondering how we were going to manage his 16 and 8. "It’s really produced us shooting the 3 at a higher rate – more of them.
