Will T-Mac be with Rockets for today's game vs Magic?
The Magic (20-34; 14-13 at TDW) snapped their 8 game losing streak against SEA, and several players were impressive, including newcomers CArroyo and Darko. To beat HOU, the Magic need to do what they did against SEA: shoot well, pass the ball well, outrebound the opponent, play good D, and take good care of the ball, while not having Coach mess things up. Coach Hill was very impressed with Darko and Arroyo, saying that they "both executed our offense well and made no mistakes as far as where they were supposed to be on the floor." So hopefully, both players will continue to get more minutes than veterans like Garrity and Augmon.
The Rockets won their first game all season without T-Mac on Friday over GS. They were previously 0-13 without Tracy. The Magic, coming off a win against a shorthanded SEA team, have to build on that against a HOU team that is tough to beat when they are on the road. HOU is a 3 1/2 pt favorite to beat the Magic this afternoon.
