The week ahead for the Magic

Orlando Magic logo
The Magic begin this week with a record of 17-6 (7-2 home, 10-4 road), tied for first place in the SE with Atlanta. Boston remains the top seed in the East with a 19-4 record, while Cleveland, at 17-7, has the fourth seed.

The Magic have four games this week, none outside the state of Florida:

Monday, Dec. 14th: Indiana (8-13, 3-7 road) The Pacers are without Danny Granger for several weeks
Wednesday, Dec. 16th: Toronto (11-15, 4-10 road) Hedo Turkoglu makes his return to Orlando as the Raptors continue to struggle despite having a talented roster
Thursday, Dec. 17th: at Miami (11-11, 5-4 road) Heat have lost 10 of their last 15 games, but one of those wins was in Orlando
Saturday, Dec. 19th: Portland (14-11, 6-7 road) Greg Oden's season-ending injury sets Blazers back

After two tough road losses at Utah and Phoenix, Magic should get back on track this week, with a good chance at winning all 4 games; with a worst-case scenario of 3-1.

    Yea i agree with matt in the fact that when gortat and anderson arent playing well BB should at least get a look. We could have used his size and strength against boozer as matt stated and also "bodying up" (as they say in basketball terms) with amare. Not having VC in the second half against the suns was also big so 2-2 on the trip will do looking at the circumstances. Moving forward tonight will be a chance to get it back,our PG's should play alot better at home and i expect a double digit magic victory tonight.

    Anything less than 4-0 is unacceptable. The most dangerous game is against TOR despite beating them twice in Toronto. IND and POR without their key players should pose no threat. With MIA it is payback time; Everybody is beating them even MEM. We, however, need to see consistent defense from Magic; while at home for a good stretch, it's time to clean it up.
