Halftime in Orlando: Magic 45, 76ers 39

The Orlando Magic are fortunate enough to hold a 6-point lead at halftime in their Game 5 against the Philadelphia 76ers; the 6-point margin ties their largest lead. A 1-of-12 shooting slump in the second quarter hurt their cause, but the 76ers were unable to capitalize on Orlando's poor shooting.

Team Pace Efficiency eFG% FT Rate OReb% TO Rate
76ers 40 97.8 45.9% 13.5 16.7 20.0
Magic 113.6 50.0% 21.6 22.7 10.0

Both teams are 16-of-37 from the field, but Orlando holds a 9-point advantage from beyond the three-point arc. The three-point looks have been open for most of the night: Philly's defense has been below-average so far.

Interesting to note Orlando's high level of efficiency despite the tremendously slow pace of the game.
