Magic/Clippers preview

The Magic (13-4, 6-3 road) are on a 4 game road winning streak for the first time since APR of 1999. They have won 6 in a row overall and 10 of 11. The Magic face the LA Clippers, who are struggling at 7-8, but are 7-2 at home. The Clippers are coming off a 97-88 loss to the Lakers SAT night. Elton Brand and former Magic G Cuttino Mobley scored 17 each.

Brand leads LAC, averaging 17.1 ppg and 10.5 rebs. G Sam Cassell averages 17.1 ppg also and 5.3 assists. Former Magic F Corey Maggette averages 14.9 ppg, and Mobley averages 14.5 ppg. F Tim Thomas averages 9.3 ppg. C Chris Kaman has not played in over a week due to a sprained ankle. THe Clippers average 96.5 ppg, while allowing 97.4 ppg. The Magic average 96.3 ppg, while allowing 91.9 ppg.

The Magic have lost 5 of their last 6 games overall to the Clippers, and are just 1-5 in their last 6 trips to LA. The Magic are coming off a last-second win at POR FRI night, thanks to the heroics of GHill and another outstanding performance from the bench. No line out for the game yet, but the Clippers will probably be a slight favorite. That won't bother the Magic, who will try to keep their roll going.

    Most of LAC's wins, even the ones at home, have been early in the season. Their recent record has been quite bad. I expect a Magic's win: Magic 107-98.

    Tonight's game could be a tough one. One thing we really have going for us, is the past two games, we've had some of our guys play below average. In Portland, both Arroyo and Nelson struggled. The Seattle, pretty much all of our starters struggled with the exception of Dwight. I expect a lot more from the PG spot tonight. It'd be nice if Turk could break out a little. Beyond that, I expect the bench to play a major role as usually.

    Magic 111-103.
