3 Areas Jonathan Isaac Improved the Most in 2018-19


To help detail just how good defensively Jonathan Isaac and several of his teammates were after Jan. 30 when the Magic went 22-9, the third best record in the NBA during this period, here’s a rather powerful stat:

Isaac and Aaron Gordon were the only two starting forwards who appeared in at least 30 games during this timeframe to hold opponents below 32 percent 3-point shooting when they were the closest defenders, per Second Spectrum tracking data. Philadelphia's Jimmy Butler, Boston's Jayson Tatum and Toronto's Pascal Siakam also limited opponents to under 32 percent from long distance, but each of them appeared in 29 or fewer games during this period.
