Magic seek to close out perfect homestand against Portland Monday night

The Magic (4-2) play the final game of their season-high five game homestand tonight against Portland (3-3). The Magic won the previous four games, and are coming off their most impressive win of the year against the Wizards on Saturday. The Blazers will be starting a five game road trip tonight. They are winless in three games on the road so far.

The Blazers will be without 2007 number one draft pick Greg Oden for another couple weeks as he recovers from his latest injury, but they feature two outstanding young players in Brandon Roy and LaMarcus Aldridge.

The Magic are in second place in the Southeast Division, a game and a half behind the undefeated Hawks, and are 7 1/2 point favorites tonight against the Blazers.

A win here would give the Magic a five game winning streak as they begin a stretch of six out of nine games on the road after tonight.
