New Jersey visits Magic tonight

The New Jersey Nets (27-34), in a close race for the eighth and final playoff spot in the East, take on the Magic (44-16) tonight.

The Nets are coming off a 115-111 loss Wednesday to the Celtics, led by guard Devin Harris with 25 points and 11 assists. The Nets trail eighth place Milwaukee by just a half game.

The Magic, 5-2 since trading for point guard Rafer Alston, are 9 point favorites.

    Looking forward to the game tonight... I'll be there with my sister; we have upper bowl seats but they're in Row H looking down right at center court.

    I hope the Magic will be ready to play tonight; the Nets barely lost to the Celtics the other night and are only a half game away from the final playoff spot in the East; Devin Harris will be a handful for Rafer Alston to guard on defense.

    If the Magic win tonight, this will make it 9 games in a row that the Magic have won with me in attendance... here's hoping that comes true!

    I'm pretty confident going in. The magic showed some real toughness going up against shaq and the suns,the nets should provide a much easier task as they dont really feature much after carter and harris. If we can push the ball and take care of it the game's outcome should be lopsided in the magic's favor. At some point all of our weapons will be to much for the nets.

    Big game at home when it comes to setting the pace at home against these lower tier eastern conference teams. Harris is going to be a handful for RA, but OUR superman should handle lopez underneath and turk for some reason always lites jersey up.


    Go MAGIC!

    These are the types of teams we need to continue beating, especially at home. And a little bit of Mike's luck never hurts either.. LOL..

    I'll be wearing my "Why Not Us? Why Not Now?" T shirt from the '95 playoffs, so there's no way the Magic lose tonight!
