Magic/Sonics preview

The Magic (13-3, 8-1 road), who have the best road record in the league, take on SEA (2-13, 0-6 home) tonight, who have the worst home record in the league. SEA is coming off a 106-99 loss to the Lakers TUE night. Kevin Durant led SEA with 25 pts. This is the Magic's second game of a five game west coast swing, having beaten POR 85-74 MON.

The probable SEA starting lineup:

G... Delonte West (8.1 ppg)
G... Kevin Durant (19.3 ppg)
F... Damien Wilkins (14.7 ppg)
F... Chris Wilcox (15.9 ppg, 7.4 rebs)
C... Kurt Thomas (5.3 ppg, 8.2 rebs)

Top reserves: Wally Szczerbiak (10.1 ppg); Jeff Green (9.6 ppg); Nick Collison (8.1 ppg); Earl Watson (7.2 ppg)

SEA is averaging 99.6 ppg, while allowing 108.4 ppg. The Magic are averaging 102.9 ppg, while allowing 95.8.

The could be the Magic's final visit to SEA for a long time, if SEA proceeds with plans to move to Oklahoma City next season. Magic have beaten SEA four straight times, and are 8 pt favorites tonight (www.pinnaclesports.com).

    It's not often a team is an 8 pt favorite on the road, but that spead is justified tonight, as the Magic are on a roll while SEA is struggling mightily.

    I look for RLewis to have a big night, as he will be anxious to perform well in front of his former home crowd.

    SEA has one of the worst defenses in the league, and the Magic should be a lot sharper from the field than they were against POR. I'll say... Magic by 16.

    from sonicscentral.com, they don't seem real confident about a Sonics win tonight:

    I won’t be able to watch this game, but I see two likely outcomes:

    1) Sonics double team Dwight Howard in the post and fail to close out on shooters, giving up nearly 30 apiece to Lewis and Turkey Glue, resulting in a blowout loss, or;

    2) Sonics don’t double team Dwight Howard, who puts up a Shaq-ly line of 30 and 20, resulting in a blowout loss.

    Prove me wrong Sonics.
