Steve-O to make first visit to TDW in Knicks uniform
NY brings a 19-47 record, 6-26 away to TDW. The Magic are now 24-43, but with a respectable 18-14 home record. NY averages 96.5 ppg, while giving up 102.4 ppg. Stephon Marbury (16.8 ppg), Jalen Rose (14.7 ppg) Eddy Curry (13.7 ppg) and Jamal Crawford (13.1 ppg) lead the Knicks. NY has gotten very good performances off their bench lately, so the Magic will need their bench to step up better than they did against CHA.
A quote from Brian Hill after last night's loss to CHA: "I'm embarrassed by our performance. I hope our players are because they should be. The way we played proved we didn't respect the game or the team. We just went through the motions." Magic are 5 1/2 pt favorites over the Knicks (www.pinnaclesports.com).
