Magic/Bobcats preview

The Magic (15-9, 7-5 road) will try to right the ship against struggling CHA (5-16, 3-8 home), who has the second worst record in the NBA, and has lost 4 games in a row. CHA is coming off a 104-101 loss at CLE WED night. Adam Morrison led CHA with 16 pts.

CHA is led by C Emeka Okafor, averaging 15.7 ppg, 10.3 rebs, 2.9 blocks. Rookie Morrison is averaging 13.3 ppg, but is shooting only 36.8%. Raymond Felton is at 13.1 ppg, G Brevin Knight 12.4 ppg, 7.2 asts, and F Sean May is at 11.7 pts, 6.8 rebs. May is another guy the Magic bypassed in last year's draft in order to draft Fran Vasquez. CHA is averaging just 91 ppg while allowing 99 ppg. The Magic average 93.4 ppg, while allowing 92.8 ppg.

DHoward has always played well against CHA . He has 2 career 20/20 games against them. Magic have lost 3 out of the last 4 games in CHA. Can BHill make the proper adjustments in the player rotation with the injuries? Can TDiener and J.J. Redick get hot from the outside? Magic are 2 pt favorites (www.pinnaclesports.com) in their first game on national TV this season.

    I think Travis and J.J.'s success or lack thereof depends on how patient Hill is with them. I expect they both to do better tonight.
