Darko Milicic returns to ORL tonight with MEM

The Magic (17-7, 5-4 home) take on MEM (6-16, 2-9 road) tonight for their only visit this season to ORL. Former Magic first round pick Mike Miller and former Magic C Darko Milicic make their return. MEM is coming off a 98-91 loss to LAC FRI night, as Miller scored 23 pts to lead MEM. Milicic scored 6 pts with 12 rebs and 3 steals.

The probable MEM starting lineup:

G... Damon Stoudamire (7.5 ppg)
G... Juan Carlos Navarro (9.9 ppg)
F... Mike Miller (15.4 ppg, 7.2 rebs)
F... Rudy Gay (18.4 ppg, 5.5 rebs)
C... Darko Milicic (7.9 ppg, 6.8 rebs)

Top reserves: Kyle Lowry (9.9 ppg); Stromile Swift (8.1 ppg); Hakim Warrick (7.8 ppg); Casey Jacobsen (2.9 ppg)

PF Pau Gasol missed FRI night's game against LAC with a jammed right big toe, and is listed as questionable for tonight's game. Magic G CArroyo will not play because of continued soreness in his foot.

MEM is averaging 102.6 ppg while allowing 105.2 ppg. ORL is averaging 103.1 ppg, while allowing 98.0 ppg.

Magic have won 8 of the last 11 meetings in ORL between the two teams, and are whopping 12 1/2 pt favorites (www.pinnaclesports.com).
