A look ahead to the month of February for the Magic

The Magic go into FEB with a 29-18 record, still the third-best record in the East, and their 29 wins is tied for 6th most in the NBA. Their 17 road wins are tied with PHO and DET for the most in the NBA. The Magic finished JAN winning 6 of their last 8 games for a 7-7 record for the month.

The Magic have 13 games in FEB, 7 home and 6 away. At home, they play 4 teams that are currently over .500 (DAL, LAL, CLE, DEN), and 3 teams currently under .500 (NJ, PHI, SAC). On the road, the Magic play 2 teams currently over .500 (DET, TOR), and 4 teams currently under .500 (PHI twice, IND, NJ).

The month features a season-high 5 game homestand from FEB 4-13. Also, the Magic play 5 games in the month's first 8 days, and 6 games the last 9 days of the month. The Magic also play three sets of back-to-back road games. Thanks to the All-Star break, the Magic play only 2 games in the 10 day span from the 9th through the 18th.

Optimistic view of how the Magic will fare this month: 10-3
Pessimistic view: 5-8

    Couldn't get the pre-game preview up in time because I spent most of the day today shoveling snow (which you guys in FL don't have to worry about).

    I should have plenty on the game later on... GO MAGIC!!
