PREGAME INFO


Recent Results: The Magic and Sixers have played one of their four scheduled meetings this season.

Jan. 30, 2012: Ryan Anderson registered 14 points and 20 rebounds, but the 76ers staved off a furious Magic rally late to pull out a win in Philadelphia.

Key Matchup: Hedo Turkoglu vs. Andre Iguodala

After being named an All-Star for the first time in his career, Iguodala’s confidence is sky high. While his statistics aren’t necessarily that intimidating, the seven-year pro is one of the more versatile and dynamic small forwards in the NBA.

Like it is when he goes up against LeBron James, Paul Pierce, Carmelo Anthony and some of the other elite small forwards, Turkoglu will have a big challenge on Wednesday.

It’s essential for Turk to play well against another top talent at his position to help boost his confidence.

Instant Analysis: The Magic would love to get some revenge from their defeat to the 76ers earlier this season and also would love to gain some momentum against Philadelphia.

If the playoffs started today, the Magic and Sixers would face off in the First Round. While there are still many games remaining that could drastically change the playoff picture, it would be a major benefit for Orlando to feel self-assured that it matches up well with any potential playoff opponent.

Other Notables: Orlando has won 11 of the last 13, 18 of the last 23 and 30 of the last 42 regular season meetings overall.
