Magic to face Utah to end road trip
The Jazz are coming off a thrashing, as SEA whipped them Sunday 113-81. Four players average in double figures for UT: Mehmet Okur (17.7 pts 9.2 rebs), Andrei Kirilenko (14.9 pts 8 rebs), and two former Magic players, Matt Harpring (11.9 ppg) and Gordy Giricek (10.6 ppg). Deron Williams is having a good rookie year (9.7 ppg) and Carlos Boozer (9.2 ppg 7.6 rebs) is back from injury.
Utah has turned the ball over more than 20 times in 3 of the last 4 games, and are second-to-last in the league in TOs committed, ahead of only the Knicks. The Magic need to put good defensive pressure on them tonight to continue that trend. Expect a low-scoring game, as UT allows 93.8 ppg and scores just 90.4 ppg. The Magic are 4 1/2 pt underdogs (www.pinnaclesports.com).
