Back at TDW for Magic as LeBron, Cavs visit
LeBron James is having a superstar season, averaging 30.6 ppg, 7 rebounds and 7 assists. Zydrunas Ilgauskas (16.2 ppg), Flip Murray (13.4 ppg), and ex-Magic Drew Gooden (10.8 ppg, 8.6 rebs) all contribute for CLE. Donyell Marshall (9.6 ppg), and Damon Jones, who hit the game-winning 3 pt FG at the buzzer against Toronto earlier this week, have helped also. CLE averages 97.5 ppg, ORL 96.6 ppg. CLE allows 95 ppg, ORL 96.6 ppg.
The Magic should be well-rested, as they haven't played since a hard-fought loss to Utah on Monday night. Coach Hill is $25,000 lighter in his wallet because of his criticism of the refs after the game. The Magic should be ready for this game and anxious to break their latest losing streak, as they lost several hard-fought games on their recently completed road trip. As usual, the Magic are underdogs, this time by 3 pts (www.pinnaclesports.com).
