Morrison, CHA visit Magic SAT night

The Charlotte Bobcats, at 2-6, conclude their 3 game road trip tonight at the first-place Magic (6-3). CHA is coming off the upset of the year so far in the NBA, beating the Spurs in SA WED night 95-92 in OT. Rookie Adam Morrison led CHA with 27 pts.

Emeka Okafor is having a tremendous year after missing much of last season due to injury. Okafor leads CHA in 4 categories: PTS (19.1), FG% (53.1%), REBS (12.3) and Blocks (4.1). PG Brevin Knight and Morrison are tied for second in scoring at 14.9 ppg. Known for his long-range shooting, Morrison is shooting just 39.3% from the field and 38.2% from 3 pt range. He has shot well the last two games though. Raymond Felton averages 13.1 ppg and Sean May 10.4 ppg. Grant Hill leads a balanced Magic attack with 16.3 ppg. CHA is averaging 93.5 ppg while allowing 99.1 ppg. ORL is averaging 97.8 ppg while allowing 95.9 ppg.

Both CHA and the Magic haven't played since Wednesday. It should be a great battle underneath the basket between DHoward and Okafor. Look for the Magic depth to wear down CHA. The Magic are favored by 8 1/2 pts (www.pinnaclesports.com).

    These are the type of games that the magic usually lose,an opponent you should beat comes in and catches you sleeping,magic better be ready tonight....i see alot of small ball coming,so BSH needs to have his match-up substitutions in order.
