Game night preview

Thursday, April 1. 8:00 p.m. TNT
American Airlines Center
Dallas, TX

There’s no player who has been more trouble for the Magic during their 2009-10 campaign than Caron Butler. After getting the best of Orlando twice this season with the Washington Wizards, Butler once again dealt the Magic a defeat on Feb. 19, this time as a member of the Dallas Mavericks. Orlando will get its final opportunity this season to earn a victory against Butler and Dallas when the two league powerhouses meet on Thursday at 8 p.m. ET. Butler has been a nightmare for the Magic this season, averaging 23.3 points and 7.7 rebounds per game versus Orlando. He’s also burned them in the clutch, drilling a game-winning corner jumper with 0.5 seconds left on Feb. 5.
