PREGAME INFO


Recent Results: Orlando currently leads its four-game season series with Milwaukee, 1-0.

Feb. 11: The Magic used a 16-0 fourth-quarter run to surge past the Bucks for a 99-94 road win.

Key Matchup: Jason Richardson vs. Shaun Livingston/Carlos Delfino

In the Magic’s only meeting with the Bucks this season, Richardson delivered his best performance of the year.

The Magic’s shooting guard erupted for a season-high 31 points, while also knocking down a career-best nine shots from 3-point range.

“It was a fan heckling me, telling me that I was washed up that got me going,” Richardson said. “I’m only 31 and I’ve been in the league for 11 years. Having him say that really got me going. I got mentally into the game, zoned in and everything started dropping. I’d like to thank that (heckler) for getting me going.”

Instant Analysis: Orlando will certainly become very familiar with Milwaukee as the two teams play three times during the Magic’s next 10 games.

And even though Orlando earned a come-from-behind victory over Milwaukee last week, there are still a few things that the squad would like to execute with more precision in this matchup.

For one, Magic Head Coach Stan Van Gundy would like his team to do a better job of controlling the glass. Orlando allowed the Bucks to grab 17 offensive rebounds this past Sunday.

He’ll expect an improved performance on the boards this Friday.

Other Notables: University of Wisconsin basketball coach Bo Ryan was in attendance and visited the Magic’s locker room after their victory over the Bucks last week. Van Gundy was the head coach at Wisconsin from 1994-1995.
