Some new franchise records the Magic set in 2012/13

The Magic set several new team records as they finished 20-62 this season, which was their second-worst record in team history.

Let's examine some of those records.

The Orlando Magic not only set an all-time franchise record for the fewest average free throw attempts per game in a season, but an all-time NBA record as well, just beating out the Philadelphia 76ers. Orlando averaged 16.6 free throw attempts per game this season, while Philadelphia averaged 16.8 free throw attempts. The previous NBA record for fewest average free throws attempts per game was 18.0, set by the 2005/06 Phoenix Suns. The previous Magic record for fewest average free throw attempts per game was 22.8, set in 2011-12, so the Magic shattered that mark by more than six free throw attempts.

The Magic just missed setting an all-time NBA record for fewest average free throws made per game, thanks to the 76ers, who were worse. Orlando averaged 12.5 free throws made per game, while Philadelphia averaged 12.2. The previous NBA record for fewest average free throws made per game was 13.5 by two other teams. The previous Magic record for fewest average free throws made per game was 15.1, set in 2011/12.

The Magic set an all-time franchise record for fewest average opponents' turnovers per game, as opponents averaged just 12.4 turnovers per game against the Magic this season. The previous Magic record for fewest average opponents' turnovers per game was 12.8, set in 2009/10.

The Magic easily set an all-time franchise record for the most home losses by at least 20 points in a single season, with nine. The previous home season mark had been four losses by at least 20 points, set in the team's inaugural season of 1989/90.

Taking that a step farther, the Magic lost four games at home this season by at least 30 points. In their previous 23 seasons combined, the Magic lost at home by at least 30 points just twice.

As far as franchise records for a single game, the Magic set an all-time team record for fewest free throws made in a game, with just three free throws against the Milwaukee Bucks on April 10th, in overtime no less. The three free throws made tied for the fewest in any overtime game in the NBA since 1985.

The Magic set an all-time team record for fewest free throws attempted in a game with five, against the Indiana Pacers on January 16th.

In their game at Denver on January 16th, the Magic were called for 27 personal fouls, while the Nuggets were whistled for just seven personal fouls. The difference of 20 fouls was the highest disparity in a game in team history. The seven personals charged to Denver were the fewest fouls charged to a Magic opponent in a game in team history.
