Magic/Bucks preview

The Magic (25-23, 9-13 road, 7th East) begin a stretch of 9 of 13 games on the road with tonight's game against the struggling Bucks (18-30, 10-9 home, 12th East). However, MIL could have star G Michael Redd back in the lineup, after missing 15 games with a left knee injury. MIL is just 2-13 without Redd. MIL is coming off a 117-98 loss at MIA SAT night. G Mo Williams scored a career-high 38 pts for MIL.

MIL is led in scoring by Redd, averaging 27.7 ppg; Williams 18.2 ppg; G Earl Boykins 16 ppg since being acquired from DEN; F Ruben Patterson 13.7 ppg; C Andrew Bogut 12.2 ppg, 8.7 rebs; F Charlie Villanueva 12.2 ppg; and G Charlie Bell 12.1 ppg. MIL is averaging 99.2 ppg (103.2 ppg with Redd in the lineup), while allowing 103.4 ppg. ORL is averaging 93.7 ppg, while allowing 92.3 ppg.

MIL has beaten the Magic 6 games in a row in MIL, and also 14 of the last 15 in MIL. Magic will need to play especially tough if Redd does return for the Bucks, as he has averaged 22.1 ppg in 17 career games against the Magic. The Magic are 1 pt favorites (www.pinnaclesports.com).

    Just saw on Bryan Schmitz's basketblog that Redd won't play in tonight's game, while Yahoo! sports says that he may play. What a huge break for the Magic if he doesn't play, as this now becomes a very winnable game.

    Hopefully the Magic shooting pct. won't be as cold as the Milwaukee weather.

    The bucks dont really have a post threat,so i expect dwight to bounce back against their frontline.Eddy curry and nobody being able to hit a shot was pretty much the difference last time out,with a few days off to get their legs,the inside outside game should look a little better.
