Magic shoot for 2 in a row against GS tonight
The Magic are coming off a big 102-73 win against CLE, and are trying for their first 2 game winning streak since late January. The Magic should be more rested than GS, as everyone on the Magic's active roster played and scored in the rout over CLE. Only one player, TBattie (31 minutes) played over 30 minutes. GS averages 98.7 ppg and allows 99.9 ppg, while the Magic average 93.2 ppg and allow 96.2 ppg.
As long as the Magic can hold down Richardson, and play excellent team ball as they did last night, this should go down as a Magic victory. Both our point guards did an excellent job running the offense against CLE. For a change, the Magic are actually favorites to win tonight against GS by 1 1/2 points (www.pinnaclesports.com).
