Iverson, Sixers visit Magic tonight
Of course, the 76ers are led by Allen Iverson, who scored 32 pts opening night, but with 7 TOs. PF Chris Webber had a poor offensive game, scoring just 8 pts on 4 of 16 shooting, but pulled down 13 boards. SF Andre Iguodala had 15 pts, and C Samuel Dalembert added 11 pts and 11 rebs. PG Kevin Ollie totaled 6 pts. PHI is not very deep, as Kyle Korver and former Magic first round draft bust Steven Hunter are the only reserves of note.
PHI held ATL to just 33.3% shooting. PHI shot 41.9% from the field, but a superb 23 of 25 (92%) from the FT line.
This is a game the Magic should win, as their superior depth and aggressive, sharp-shooting offense should be more than enough to avoid any possible letdown. Magic are 6 pt favorites (www.pinnaclesports.com).
