Game night preview
ORLANDO MAGIC vs. SAN ANTONIO SPURS
Wednesday, March 17. 8:00 p.m. ESPN
After having their eight-game winning streak snapped on Sunday night, the Orlando Magic (47-21, 27-7 home) will attempt to get back on track when they face the San Antonio Spurs (40-25, 16-15 road) for the first time this season at home Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET. The Magic found themselves on a roll before Sunday’s affair, rattling off eight consecutive victories by an average of 18.1 points per game, but they were unable to get that same type of offensive output against the Bobcats. Despite getting efficient offense out of Dwight Howard, Mickael Pietrus and Vince Carter – who combined for 70 of the Magic’s 89 points – Orlando did not get consistent production from its other players in its loss to Charlotte. Orlando will have a difficult challenge with San Antonio coming to town. Even though the Spurs have been without Tony Parker (broken left hand), they’ve still managed to notch three straight triumphs and have outscored their opponents by 19.3 points per contest during that span. George Hill has filled in admirably as San Antonio’s new starting point guard, averaging 17 points and 6.8 assists per game since Parker’s injury.
|San Antonio||40-25||2nd Southwest / 7th West||100.8||95.7||Road 16-15||Won 4||8-2|
|Orlando||47-21||1st Southeast / 2nd East||101.8||95.1||Home 27-7||Lost 1||8-2|
