WASHINGTON — Although it's unclear when, exactly, Glen Davis will return to the floor again for the Orlando Magic, there's no doubting that the team has been different without him.
With him, they sat one game below the .500 mark and their defense ranked among the league's best, but their offense struggled.
Without him, they've gone 1-10 and their defense has struggled. But their offense ranks as one of the most efficient in the league.
Let's call this "The Glen Davis Effect." The chart below, with statistics culled by the Orlando Sentinel from the NBA's official database, shows how the Magic have fared with Davis and without him. The numbers in parentheses show how the Magic rank compared to the league's 29 other teams.
