Glen Davis' misfires hurting the Magic

Glen Davis - USA TODAY Sports

ESPN finds that Davis is the league's worst shooter from one particular spot on the floor.

Tuesday afternoon, Orlando Pinstriped Post highlighted a story Kirk Goldsberry posted at Grantland which indicated that Orlando Magic swingman Arron Afflalo leads the league in shooting on two-pointers along the right baseline. Goldsberry's story was called "The Best Shooters So Far."

Wednesday, Goldsberry published the follow-up, "The Worst Shooters So Far." And another Magic player makes that list.

Indeed, veteran big man Glen Davis ranks dead last among qualified players in field-goal shooting on two-pointers from the left baseline, converting on just 29 percent of his offerings there. The league average on shots in that zone, according to "The Best Shooters So Far," is 39.3 percent.

Fortunately for Orlando, Davis hasn't reached Josh Smith's level of infamy: the Atlanta Hawks forward dominates two zones on Goldsberry's worst-shooters chart.

Davis is Orlando's second-leading scorer, averaging 15.5 points per game, and he's shooting 44.7 percent overall. In his eight games back in the lineup after missing 11 games with a sprained left shoulder, he's posted 13.8 points on 44.3 percent shooting.
