The Magic (3-1) won’t get much rest before traveling back to Orlando to host the Phoenix Suns (4-0) on Wednesday at 7 p.m. ET. Playing a back-to-back is never an easy task, especially when you’re trying to contain the Suns’ high-octane offense. After parting ways this offseason with center Shaquille O’Neal, who at times stagnated Phoenix’s run-and-gun style, and having a full offseason under the guise of head coach Alvin Gentry, the Suns’ offense has returned to form. Phoenix has posted a league-best 117.33 ppg. in its first three affairs with six players averaging in double figures. Along with scoring 18.7 ppg., Suns point guard Steve Nash has also dished out an average of 14 assists per contest. The Magic will not only need a staunch defensive effort from All-Star point guard Jameer Nelson to limit the two-time MVP, but they’ll also need his teammates to clog the passing lanes to prevent him from distributing the ball at will.
