Jazz/Magic preview

UT (14-13, 5-11 road) will make their only visit to ORL (18-9, 5-5 home) this season tonight. UT is coming off a 98-92 road loss to CHA WED night, with Carlos Boozer leading UT with 21 pts. The Jazz have lost 7 straight road games.

The probable starting lineup for the Jazz:

G... Deron Williams (19.9 ppg, 8.8 asts)
G... Ronnie Brewer (13.6 ppg)
F... Andrei Kirilenko (11.0 ppg, 6.1 rebs)
F... Carlos Boozer (25.3 ppg, 11.8 rebs)
C... Jarron Collins (2.4 ppg)

Top reserves: Mehmet Okur (12.2 ppg); Paul Millsap (7.9 ppg, 5.8 rebs); Matt Harpring (6.9 ppg); Jason Hart (3.5 ppg). Gordan Giricek has been sent home by UT Coach Jerry Sloan and will not play.

UT is averaging 104.7 ppg, while allowing 100.1 ppg. ORL is averaging 103.6 ppg and allowing 99.1 ppg.

The Magic have beaten UT 6 of the last 7 games, including 4 games in a row in ORL; the Magic is a 4 pt favorite tonight (www.pinnaclesports.com).

    The Jazz are a very solid, yet struggling team, losing 7 road games in a row. You know they are going to snap out of it soon; let's hope it's not tonight.

    Magic need a win to avoid falling to an embarrassing sub-.500 record at home. Being optimistic, I'm predicting a 7 pt Magic win tonight to keep UT in their slump.

    Big Game at home against a good western conference team that has been struggling as of late on the road. Im looking for just a couple of things tonight but the most important is probably the attitude of a team that should want to win at home!!! coming off a very needed road win, we have to come in tonight and show the home crowd why they show up to AMWAY on game nights. Once again i wanna see something from lewis and definetly something jnelson and most of all i wanna see a win at home dammit!!!!
