    Still having problems with the word verification process... it seems if I write a post longer than 5 minutes, it won't publish for me, so I'll just continue my post here in the comments section.

    The Magic (30-36, 20-13 home, T8th East) will try to win 2 games in a row for the first time since FEB 2nd as they play host to SAC (28-37, 10-23 away, 12th West). The Kings have lost 5 games in a row and are coming off a 103-97 defeat at MIA FRI night. F Ron Artest led SAC with 32 pts, 11 rebs; G Mike Bibby added 21 pts.

    SAC is led in scoring by G Kevin Martin, who averages 21.1 ppg on 49% FGs; Artest 19 pts, 6.6 rebs; Bibby 17.3 ppg, 5 asts; F Shareef Abdur-Rahim 9.8 ppg; and C Brad Miller 9.5 ppg, 6.6 rebs. SAC averages 101 ppg, while allowing 101.8 ppg; The Magic average 94 ppg, while allowing 94.6 ppg.

    The Magic won in SAC on DEC 4th 92-89, thanks to a JNelson 3 pt FG in the final seconds. The Magic have beaten SAC in 4 of the last 5 games in ORL. The big question is can the Magic be as successful with their new fast-break style of offense and player rotation against SAC as they were against UT. TBattie will start at PF with DMilicic coming off the bench. The Magic are 6 pt favorites (www.pinnaclesports.com).

    So the first game of the season that the gameplan was catered correctly to our strengths darko was injured,he didnt get the chance to benefit from the new rotation or the pushing the ball of the jameer and keyon at the point,tonight i think the magic should be even better at playing our new style with the added depth that darko brings,whether starting or not his impact on the game will be felt,i cant wait to see that second unit of keyon-jj-trevor and darko for the first time.If everything stays the same magic win.....
