PREGAME INFO


Last Season’s Results: The Magic split their season series with the Spurs with both teams defending their home court.

Nov. 22: Dwight Howard notched 26 points and 18 rebounds, but a 12-2 run by the Spurs to close the contest was the deciding factor in San Antonio’s 106-97 victory.

Dec. 23: Seven Magic players scored in double figures as the Magic rolled to a 123-101 victory at Amway Center.

Key Matchup: Jameer Nelson vs. Tony Parker

Magic starting point guard Jameer Nelson will get the toughest test of Orlando’s back-to-back-to-back stretch when Orlando faces San Antonio. Former Finals MVP Tony Parker has been the Spurs most effective player this season, averaging 15.9 points and 7.4 assists per game this season (as of Sunday).

Instant Analysis: Despite a solid start to their 2011-12 campaign, the Spurs have yet to record a win on the road, dropping all four contests away from the friendly confines of AT&T Center.

The Magic hope the Spurs road woes continue on Wednesday.

Other Notables: The Magic have won four of the last five matchups against the Spurs at home. Hedo Turkoglu played for San Antonio in 2003-04.
