Raptors/Magic preview

The Magic (15-8, 8-3 home, 1st East), losers of 4 of the last 6 games, will host another slumping team in TOR (7-14, 2-11 road, 13th East). TOR has lost 4 games in a row, and will be without talented young C Chris Bosh, who has a bruised knee and did not make the trip to FL. TOR is coming off a 99-77 loss to MIA MON night. Anthony Parker led TOR with 18 pts.

Without Bosh, who is averaging 20.5 ppg and 12.2 rebs per game, TOR is led in scoring by PG T.J. Ford, averaging 14.2 ppg and 8 asts per game. G/F Morris Peterson averages 13.0 ppg, G/F Anthony Parker 10.7 ppg, G Fred Jones 9.7 ppg, F/C Jorge Garbajosa 8.9 ppg, and number one draft pick Andrea Bargnani averages 8.3 ppg. TOR averages 96.2 ppg, and allows 99.9 ppg. ORL averages 93.8 ppg, and allows 92.9 ppg.

DHoward should be able to bounce back in a big way after his 4 pt 3 reb effort against PHO. The Magic have beaten TOR 3 of the last 4 games at home. Magic are 9 pt favorites (www.pinnaclesports.com).

    In the four recent losses the magic have played ok to start the games,it seems like the third quarter is when the struggle's start to happen,jameer's had two straight games of awful second half's,the point guard/quarterback of your offense has to be better than that or we'll continue to lose,if he cant go tonight so be it,but we have to be better down the stretch.
