Default Magic are a low-assist team

NBA.com reports:

The Orlando Magic are not a high-assist team. They ranked 25th in the league this season with 19.7 assists per game and 24th by assisting on 53.7 percent of their field goals.

Orlando’s two leading scorers in the regular season were Dwight Howard and Vince Carter. And according to 82games.com, just 50 percent of Howard’s field goals and just 38 percent of Carter’s field goals were assisted on. Think of Howard working slowly in the low post and Carter coming off of a high screen and those numbers make sense.
