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