(13-20) vs. (21-12)
Line: Magic by 10.5
–Gilbert Arenas has made a positive impact on the Magic, especially with his passing, since last month’s trades.
–As good as Orlando has played, John Schumann of NBA.com writes the team could be even better if it can figure out how to make its starting lineup and its most used lineup more efficient offensively and defensively.
–Jason Richardson tells John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com he is ecstatic about his opportunity to play for a winning team and have his first real shot at a championship.
–JJ Redick is playing some of the best basketball of his career and it might be because he has found a very good balance in his life off the court as Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel writes.
