Magic/Wizards preview

The Magic (1-1) will find out in a hurry if they can bounce back from the big loss to DET last night as they travel to WAS to take on the winless Wizards (0-2). The Wizards are coming off a big loss also, losing to the new look Celtics 103-83 last night. WAS set an all-time record for futility in that game, going 0-16 on 3 pt FGs.

WAS is 0-2 for the first time in 10 years, and will be trying to avoid an 0-3 start for the first time in 15 years.

The probable WAS starting lineup:

G... Gilbert Arenas (27.5 ppg)
G... DeShawn Stevenson (4.5 ppg)
C... Brendan Haywood (10.0 ppg, 12.5 rebs)
F... Caron Butler (18.5 ppg, 9.5 rebs)
F... Antawn Jamison (18.5 ppg, 13.0 rebs)

Key reserves include Darius Songaila (9.5 ppg), Andray Blatche, and Antonio Daniels.

WAS is a 2 pt favorite (www.pinnaclesports.com).

    The Magic will have to bring their A game definitely, as this will be the Wizards' home opener and the Wiz are desperate for a win to avoid going 0-3.

    I don't expect the Magic to win tonight, but I hope they can at least be competitive and bounce back from the bad showing last night. I'll say 111-109 WAS.

    There's a really good column on CBS Sportsline about how Stan Van Gundy is in such an enviable position as coach of the Magic because of all the talent and potential of the team. Check it out at www.sportsline.com/nba/story/10448270

    Hope it's as nice a day in FL as it is here in the Chicago area... I'm gonna go out and get some exercise and not get too stressed about the Magic, as it is very early in the season.
