Game night preview

From the Magic press release:

Sunday, Nov. 8. 7:00 p.m.

Ford Center
Oklahoma City, OK

Orlando’s four-game week comes to an end on Sunday as they head to Oklahoma City to face the Thunder (2-3) at 7 p.m. ET. After finishing the 2008-09 campaign with the fourth-worst record in the NBA, the Thunder look like a rejuvenated franchise this season. Their young nucleus, consisting of 2007 second-overall draft pick Kevin Durant, forward Jeff Green and Russell Westbrook, has put up impressive numbers to start the NBA’s 2009-10 campaign. Durant has exploded for 24.2 points and 8.2 rebounds per game, while Green is averaging 16.6 and 6.6. Russell Westbrook has distributed the ball effectively to both of Oklahoma’s fantastic forwards, notching 7.8 assists to go along with his 18.4 ppg. The key once again for Orlando will be establishing Dwight Howard down low. The Thunder currently lack an effective big man and will rely on Nenad Krstic to stop the reigning Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

Here is the complete preview from Yahoo! Sports.

The Magic are 6 point favorites.
