76ers/Magic preview

Team turmoil, also known as the PHI 76ers (5-13, 2-9 road, 14th East), make their last visit of the season to ORL (14-7, 7-2 home) SAT night, without star G Allen Iverson, who likely will be traded. PHI has lost 6 in a row and 13 of 15, and is coming off a 113-98 loss FRI night to WAS.

Without Iverson's 31.2 ppg average, PHI is led in scoring by F Kyle Korver, averaging 13.7 ppg (53.5% 3 PT FG). G Andre Iguodala averages 13.6 ppg, F Chris Webber averages 11.1 ppg and 8.5 rebs, and G Willie Green averages 10.9 ppg off the bench. C Sam Dalembert averages 8.5 ppg and 7.9 rebs. Former Magic C Steven Hunter averages 4.9 ppg. PHI averages 97.3 ppg while allowing 102.3 ppg. ORL averages 94.4 ppg, while allowing 92.8 ppg.

Magic have lost 3 of their last 4 games. PHI defeated the Magic in early NOV in ORL, but Iverson scored 39 pts that game and was the hero. He will not be in the building tonight, fortunately for the Magic. Magic are whopping 11 1/2 pt favorites (www.pinnaclesports.com).

    To me this game doesnt need any analysis,the magic must win games like this one and need a win bad anyway,beating philly while they are down and dont have their superstar is what good teams do point blank.
