What Didn't Work
1. Defense- Following a fast offensive start for Orlando, their defensive intensity was down for most of the game. Atlanta shot 51.1% from the field (46-90), and missed quite a few easy, open shots.
2. Perimeter defense- Atlanta, who isn't a great outside shooting team hit on 11 of 17 three-point attempts for 64.7%.
3. Defense on Atlanta point guards- The duo of Mike Bibby and Salim Stoudamire combined for 39 points on 14-22 shooting from the field. They also combined for 6 assists.
4. Free throw shooting- Orlando's inconsistency from the free throw line reared its ugly head yet again as the team shot just 18-28 from the line for 64.3%.
