Magic coach Brian Hill has hinted at lineup changes the last few days since the Magic lost 2 games in a row to ATL. With MIL slumping even worse than the Magic, and their top scorer being out, this game offers a good chance for the Magic to get back on the winning track. Magic are 8 pt favorites (www.pinnaclesports.com).
