PREGAME INFO


Last Season’s Results: Orlando split its season series with Golden State.

Jan. 3: : Hedo Turkoglu notched a triple double -- 10 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists -- as the Orlando Magic surged past the Golden State Warriors, 110-90.

March 11: The Magic stuffed the stat sheet as Jason Richardson fired off 30 points, Jameer Nelson and Hedo Turkoglu each added 24 and Dwight Howard grabbed 21 rebounds, but it was not enough as Golden State edged Orlando in overtime.

Key Matchup: Ryan Anderson vs. David Lee

Although Ryan Anderson has shot the ball tremendously to start the season, Magic Head Coach Stan Van Gundy has challenged the 23-year-old power forward to play defense and rebound the ball with more consistency. He'll put to test against Warriors big man David Lee, who's averaging 16.6 points and 9.7 rebounds per game.

Instant Analysis: The Warriors have struggled out of the gate, winning just two of their first eight games of the season. Part of the problem has been their inability to put up points like they have in the past. Despite averaging over 100 ppg. during the past five seasons, Golden State is managing to post a mere 89.9 ppg. during its 2011-12 campaign. The Magic hope to keep that number low when they face the Warriors on Thursday.

Other Notables: Orlando has won five of the last six and 16 of the last 23 meetings in the series overall. Jason Richardson began his career with the Warriors, playing in 438 games during his first six pro seasons (2001-07).
