PREGAME INFO


Last Season’s Results: The Magic split their season series with the Kings.

Feb. 23: Dwight Howard’s 31-point, 17-rebound game was not enough to overcome a balanced Sacramento offensive attack.

March 9: Jameer Nelson racked up a team-high 26 points and Hedo Turkoglu drilled a clutch 3-pointer down the stretch to give Orlando a road win over Sacramento.

Key Matchup: Jameer Nelson vs. Tyreke Evans

Orlando’s Jameer Nelson runs into another top-of-the-line point guard when he faces 2010 Rookie of the Year Tyreke Evans on Sunday. In Sacramento’s matchup with New Orleans last night, Evans shredded the Hornets for 27 points, four rebounds and three assists.

Instant Analysis: Although the Kings have yet to get consistent production out of their big men, their backcourt tandem of Evans and Marcus Thornton can put up points in a hurry.

Other Notables: Hedo Turkoglu was selected by Sacramento in the first round (16th overall) of the 2000 NBA Draft. Both the Magic and the Kings were unable to protect home court against each other last season.
