Game night preview

Thursday, Dec. 10. 10:30 p.m TNT
EnergySolutions Arena
Salt Lake City, UT

The Magic (17-4, 10-2 road) travel to Utah (12-9, 9-3 road) on Thursday to face the Jazz at 10:30 p.m. ET. After a slow start to the season, the Jazz have won seven out of their last 11 games, including five straight at home. While Utah has struggled the past few seasons away from the confines of EnergySolutions Arena, the Jazz are known as one of the toughest home opponents in the NBA. Over the past two seasons, Utah has compiled a 71-12 record at home, while going just 32-51 on the road. “Easy, Utah,” Magic big man Brandon Bass said without hesitation when asked of the toughest place to play in the NBA. “With the crowd and the altitude, it’s tough.”

Here is the complete preview from Yahoo! Sports.

The Magic are 3 point favorites.

    The Jazz will be looking to redeem themselves after scoring a pitiful 25 second-half points against the Lakers last night.

    The Magic will have their work cut out for them in a very tough venue, but if they can focus on defense while playing their efficient offense of late, I like the Magic's chances.

    The Magic do have one advantage, which is that the Jazz is going to be back to back, and although being at home helps, the Jazz faced the champions and now tonight they will face the Eastern Champions. This should be a good game, and I hope someone can stay in front of Deron Williams
