CHA is led in scoring by Gerald Wallace (14.7 ppg). Primoz Brezec (12.2 ppg), Brevin Knight (12.2 ppg, 8.8 assists), Jumaine Jones (10.7 ppg) and rookie Raymond Felton (10.3 ppg) contribute. CHA averages 95.8 ppg, while allowing 100.5 ppg. DHoward now leads the Magic in scoring at 15.5 ppg, followed by the injured GHill (15.1 ppg) and JNelson (14 ppg).

One of the Magic's last road wins came against CHA on Jan. 20th 104-93. The Magic need to play better defense than they did against ATL, and Darko hopefully will play more than 17 minutes. Trevor Ariza should see more playing time after his good game against ATL. The handicappers continue to dis the Magic, as CHA is a 2 1/2 pt favorite tonight (www.pinnaclesports.com).
