PREGAME INFO


Recent Results: The Magic and Spurs played a thriller already this season with San Antonio prevailing.

Jan. 18: Dwight Howard posted 24 points and 25 rebounds and J.J. Redick had a strong finish but his final 3-point shot at the buzzer in overtime was released a tad too late as the Spurs edged the Magic.

Key Matchup: Jameer Nelson vs. Tony Parker

Considering Parker had an outstanding performance, 25 points, nine assists, the last time the Magic played the Spurs, it will be imperative for Nelson to prevent the Frenchman from erupting again. Nelson has played very well of late, serving as more of a distributor rather than a scorer to help get maximum number of teammates involved. In every game since Feb. 1, at least four Magic players have reached double figures in scoring, which is a credit to Jameer’s unselfishness.

Instant Analysis: After hosting the Heat in what will undoubtedly be a game filled with so much raw emotion, it will certainly be difficult for the Magic to sustain that energy when they travel to San Antonio. But as this team is well aware of, to be a championship contending team, it’s important to overcome as many obstacles and challenges as possible. This test against the Spurs under these circumstances will absolutely be one of them.

Other Notables: The Magic have won four of the last seven overall, but split the last 12 meetings in the series.
