Game night preview
ORLANDO MAGIC vs. DENVER NUGGETS
Sunday, March 28. 6:00 p.m.
The Nuggets will visit the Magic on Sunday at 6 p.m. ET in a possible preview of June’s championship series. These two NBA powerhouses also possess two of the more “underrated” MVP candidates. Carmelo Anthony, first off, is having arguably the best season of his career. The three-time All-Star is averaging nearly 29 points and seven rebounds per game, and has his team on pace to win the most games in a season in franchise history since Denver joined the NBA in 1976. Dwight Howard, similarly, has been absolutely tremendous since the All-Star break. Superman leads the league in rebounds and blocks and had a stretch of 20 straight double-doubles recently. In their last meeting on Jan. 13, Anthony racked up 27 points and Chauncey Billups contributed 24 as the Nuggets rolled to a 115-97 victory at the Pepsi Center. Matt Barnes led Orlando in the loss with a season-best 28 points.
|Denver||48-25||1st Northwest / 2nd West||107.2||102.5||Road 18-19||Won 1||6-4|
|Orlando||51-22||1st Southeast / 2nd East||101.9||94.9||Home 29-7||Won 1||8-2|
