PREGAME INFO


Recent Results: After sweeping the Bobcats last season, the Magic are already 1-0 against Charlotte in 2011-12.

Dec. 30: Orlando ended 2011 with a supreme performance as Ryan Anderson led five Magic players in double figures with 23 points in a rout of the Bobcats.

Key Matchup: J.J. Redick vs. Gerald Henderson

If Jason Richardson, who is currently nursing a bruised knee, isn’t back for Tuesday’s game against Charlotte, then Redick will start and be matched up with Henderson, another former Duke star.

It would be a difficult assignment for Redick, considering Henderson’s size and mid-range propensity. But, with Redick playing so well lately, it’s a great opportunity for him to showcase his improvements against an up-and-coming star like Henderson.

Instant Analysis: With this contest packed in between a game at MSG against the Knicks and a showdown with one of the West’s best, the Spurs, as part of a back-to-back-to-back, it’s imperative for the Magic to remain focused against a team they have dominated of late.

Other Notables: Orlando is 21-8 all-time vs. Charlotte (12-2 at home, 9-6 on the road). During his one full season as a member of the Bobcats in 2007-08, J-Rich averaged a team-best 21.8 points per game.
