Magic, coming off 2-12 February, face GS tonight

Two struggling teams will have at it tonight. GS (24-32, 15-15 home) is on a 4 game losing streak, and since starting the season 12-6, are 12-26 since. The Magic (20-36, 6-22 home) have lost 16 of their last 18 games and are coming off a 2-12 February where they went 0-8 on the road and 2-4 at home to fall hopelessly out of the playoff chase.

Don't be fooled by the Warrior's mediocre record, as they have some talented players, led by Jerome Richardson (22.9 ppg). Baron Davis (18.7 ppg 9.2 assists), Troy Murphy (15.4 ppg), Derek Fisher (12.2 ppg), Mickael Pietrus (10.7 ppg), and Mike Dunleavy (10.4 ppg) all average in double figures. But GS allows 99.4 ppg, so the Magic have a good chance to cure their offensive struggles tonight.

The Magic's starting lineup is just begging for a change after last night's performance against the Lakers. Will Coach Hill finally realize that and at least start Darko while having Battie come off the bench. Dooling and/or Stevenson could be replaced also, and might help the Magic more off the bench. The Magic are 4 pt underdogs against GS (www.pinnaclesports.com)

    I am sorry to say that it is not going to happen. Brian Hill thinks that he has the full confidence of the ownership and he does not need to explain himself. Unless he turns smart, miraculously, we are going to see the same moronic mistakes be repeated, over and over again.
