Charlotte has the fourth-highest adjusted offensive rating in the league and the second-best team shooting percentage. Orlando has a low defensive rating and a poor offensive game, scoring the third least points per game and shooting 44.6% from the floor.

The Hornets will try to slow the game down and keep it close against the Magic. Charlotte has the 11th-highest adjusted defensive rating. The Hornets are focusing on Banchero and making it tough for other players to beat him. The total is 225.5, but I don't have enough confidence in the team to bet on it.
