After 4 days off, Magic back in action against Bucks
In the Magic's last 5 wins, they are averaging 105.2 ppg while shooting a torrid 54.1% from the field while holding opponents to just 93.2 ppg. JNelson has averaged 19.6 ppg in the 5 wins.
MIL is coming off a big loss to MIA Tuesday, losing 115-89. Star G Michael Redd (25 ppg, 40% 3 pt FG%) leads the Bucks. Bobby Simmons (13.5 ppg), Mo Williams (13.2 ppg), and TJ Ford (11.2 ppg) all average in double figures, while Jamaal Magliore averages 9.6 pts and 9.6 rebs. Number one draft pick Andrew Bogut is averaging 8.9 ppg and 7.1 rebs. One player that the Magic better not overlook is G Charlie Bell, who scored a career-high 29 pts against the Heat, and is averaging 16 ppg in his last 9 games, nearly double his season average of 8.3 ppg.
The Bucks set an all-time NBA record last week in a game against IND, committing only 2 TOs the whole game. They are currently in 6th place in the East and have not clinched a playoff berth, so this is a big game for them. Coach Hill better have his team ready after 4 days off, as they must be anxious to get back on the floor and continue their impressive play. Magic are 3 pt favorites (www.pinnaclesports.com).
