Allen and F Rashard Lewis are the 1-2 scoring punch for the Sonics; Allen averaging 25.5 ppg on 44.2% shooting and Lewis averaging 22.9 ppg on 50.2% shooting. G Luke Ridnour averages 15.5 ppg and C Chris Wilcox averages 10.5 ppg. SEA coach Bob Hill was recently very critical of the SEA reserves, saying he needs much more out of them. SEA averages 100.4 ppg, while allowing 101.1 ppg. The Magic averages 96.8 ppg, while allowing just 92.7 ppg.
SEA has won 11 of the last 14 games with the Magic in SEA. SEA will be fired up and ready to go after their bad game against SA. The Magic need to guard against a letdown after a big win over Utah MON. The Magic's superior depth, sound defensive play, and good decision-making with the ball should bring another victory, particularly if they can shoot better they did against UT. However, SEA is a 2 1/2 pt favorite (www.pinnaclesports.com).
