What They’re Saying: Bucks vs. Magic 12/30

Bucks (12-17) vs. Magic (22-8)
Time/TV: 7 p.m./FS-Florida
Key Matchup: Brandon Jennings (18 pts. vs. Orlando on Nov. 28) vs. Jameer Nelson (8.3 PPG, 2.7 APG since return from injury)

-Orlando will focus on cutting down its turnovers after struggling protecting the ball in the last few weeks. The bad news, Milwaukee is one of the top teams at forcing turnovers in the league.

-For those living in Orlando, Magic fans are being urged by FOX to seek alternative ways to watch Magic games on Sun Sports. Sun Sports is among the FOX channels that appear likely to be pulled from Brighthouse Networks on January 1. Sun Sports carries 25 of Orlando’s final 50 games.

-Bucks coach Scott Skiles is still searching for his team’s rotation now that they have settled down after their surprisingly explosive 8-3 start. Skiles benched star players Andrew Bogut and Michael Redd for the second half of Monday’s game in Charlotte after the team fell down by 22 in the first half.

-Stan Van Gundy is known as a pretty hard-driving coach, arriving at Amway Arena four hours before tip off to hand-write final preparations on his legendary white board. But Van Gundy also realizes he needs to try and get out of the coach’s office… at least for an hour.

-David Steele recounts the top nine moments of 2009 for the Magic.

-Random Thought of the Day: Could there be a lot of Bucks fans at Amway Arena tonight after Wisconsin took care of Miami in the Champs Sports Bowl last night?
