Quantcast

Summative Equation of the Game: 
Bos – 47 Conversions + [+6 “Stripes”] {Note: 11 treys “minus” 5 missed FT’s}
Orl – 39 Conversions + [+4 “Stripes”] {Note: 6 treys “minus” 2 missed FT’s} 
Expected Outcome -- +8 Conversions + [+2 Stripes] = C’s win by 18 points
Actual Score: Boston 104, Orlando 88

The Good: Other than a give-away 24-second violation in the final half-minute, Boston played turnover-free ball during the final 12 minutes. (The C’s committed their fifth team foul of Q3 with 6:39 remaining – they fouled no more in Q3.)

The Bad: The C’s committed ten fouls against shooters – FIVE of them “and-1” opportunities. (The Magic were empty on their final seven Q3 possessions, while the C’s faltered on seven of their last eight.)

The Ugly: The teams combined to shoot 2 for 16 from three-point arc in the fourth quarter. (Out of a combined 197 possessions, the team produced 72 one-and-done possessions – the Magic had 42.)

The Odd: Each team’s longest run of consecutive converted possessions was five – and occurred during each side’s final nine possessions of the game. (The Magic became only the second team to outplay Boston during the C’s typically on-point opening to the second half – the other was the Knicks.)

Note re Calculations:
The number of “possessions” is an accurate count, not a formula-based estimated value.

For purposes of clarity, the bracketed digit following the FT% is the exact count of “conversions” represented by those FTA’s.

“Possessions” calculation: FGA’s + FT conversions + TO’s – OR’s (including Team OR’s)
“Conversions” calculation: FG’s + FT conversions
