The Magic, at 18-22, coming off a great OT win against Philly, go to Madison Square Garden tonight to face the Knicks, who, at 13-27, are trying to avoid their 7th loss in a row. The Magic are getting no respect from the oddsmakers, as they are 4 pt underdogs going into the game, but have had a great amount of success against NY the last two years. They've won 6 of their last 7 against NY and 3 in a row at MSG. Here's the key to the game: in two wins against the Knicks this year, the Magic have gone to the FT line 73 times! In this 5 game winning streak, the Magic have done an excellent job of drawing fouls and getting to the FT line, so look for that trend to continue tonight. Also, the Knicks are leading the league in TOs committed, averaging 17.4 per game. The Magic have to keep Stephon Marbury under control, as he's averaging 19 pts and 7 assists. He's coming off a sprained shoulder, so he won't be a hundred percent but will play. Jamaal Crawford (14.7 pts), Channing Frye (14.2 pts), and Eddy Curry (14.7 pts 6.6 rebs) are also averaging in double figures. At TDW on Dec. 28th, in a 10 pt Magic win, Curry had a huge game, with 29 pts and 9 rebounds before having to leave with an injury. Battie, with help from Howard, will have to play solid defense in the low post to prevent another monster game by Curry. Can the Magic add to their winning streak after a tough OT win last night? It's going to take another good team effort and the guys will have to step up like they've been doing... Go Magic!
