Orlando Magic Getting Inside 2008-03-29


Orlando Magic Getting Inside 2008-03-29
The Magic will be back at home, and well-rested, but this one still will be difficult to win.

The New Orleans Hornets aren't leading the tough Western Conference by accident.

The Magic (47-27) already lost to both the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors, two of the last three teams they have faced from West. They play the Hornets on Tuesday, following three days off.

The Magic beat the Hornets, 95-88, in New Orleans, but that was back in November, and much has changed since then. The Hornets are fighting to keep the No. 1 seed in the West, while the Magic appear to be locked into the No. 3 seed in the East, which will give the visitors the edge in motivation.

MAGIC 103, BUCKS 86: Dwight Howard had 25 points and 11 rebounds, leading the Magic to an easy victory over the struggling Bucks.

The Magic (47-27) won their 24th game of the season on the road, setting a franchise record that was held by the 1995-96 team that finished with 60 victories, including 23 away from home.

The Magic shut down Michael Redd, the Bucks' leading scorer, taking away any chance they had for a victory. The Bucks already had lost twice in the last 10 days to the lowly Miami Heat.

The Bucks tried intentionally fouling Howard early, hoping he would miss his free throws, but when he made eight of 10 in the first quarter, they abandoned the strategy.

The Magic hit 10 of 28 from three-point range, compared to just three of 12 for the Bucks.
