Game night preview
ORLANDO MAGIC vs. HOUSTON ROCKETS
Wednesday, Dec. 23. 7:00 p.m.
The Orlando Magic (21-7, 11-2 home) continue their homestand on Wednesday when they take on the Houston Rockets (17-11, 9-7 road) at 7 p.m. ET. The Rockets have had their share of adversity this year, losing Yao Ming for the season and playing much of it without star Tracy McGrady. McGrady, a former Magic player and cousin of eight-time All-Star Vince Carter, recently made his return to the court on December 15 and is averaging 1.8 points per game in a limited role that has him playing just eight minutes per contest. “I feel good,” McGrady said after Monday’s practice. “I’m very excited to be back. I’m still trying to knock off the rust, but it’s coming.” Orlando will look to reverse its fortune against Houston, who has claimed 12 of the last 14 regular season meetings with the Magic.
Here is the complete preview from Yahoo! Sports.
The Magic are 8 point favorites.
