This game features a weak Orlando team struggling to fight for a playoff spot against the upstart Jazz who are surprising fans with their strong play.
The Magic are 1-5 in their last 6 games while Utah is 2-2 in their last 4, but did defeat the reigning champs.
The Magic seem to be destined for a lottery pick, as they have too many talented big men, and not a well rounded roster to fight for a playoff spot in the East.
Due to a right quad contusion Elfrid Payton will be questionable for this game. He has struggled recently and it could be due to the injury, but if he plays I don’t expect him to make much of an impact against George Hill who is a capable defender.
If Payton can’t start look for D.J. Augustin to step, and he can provide 6-8 assists on a very good night.
Even with the talented front line being loaded, Serge Ibaka continues to be a smart acquisition by the Magic front office. He has scored 10+ points in 9 of the last 10 Orlando games, and is the key focal point on both ends of the floor.
Nikola Vucevic is a good young center for Orlando, and is basically a lock to get a double double when he steps onto the floor.
With him and Ibaka playing in differing roles on the offensive side of they should provide headaches for Favors and Gobert.
Evan Fournier leads the team in scoring and the French sharpshooter will be a headache for Gordon Hayward when he gets his hands on the ball.
Gordon Hayward will be a coveted free agent this offseason and will definitely get a max money deal this summer. The talented swingman out of Butler is averaging 22 points, 6 rebounds, and nearly 4 assists per game.
He put up 28 points on 10-12 shooting against the Cavs in an 8 point victory, and his strong play should continue in this game. Look for Hayward to get 30 points and lead all scorers on the night.
George Hill had a good all around game against Cleveland. The veteran piunt guard had 13 points, 7 assists and 3 rebounds. He provides good defense and decision making on a team that has a number of scoring options in the paint and behind the arc.
It wouldn’t surprise me to see Hill get another 7 assists tonight, and put up double digit points.
Rudy Gobert is another good young center, and he personally believes he is the best center in the NBA. He had 11 points and 14 rebounds against the Cavs, and has double digit rebounds in the last 10 games.
His ability to defend the rim and score in the post should be the key difference in this one. Look for Gobert tio hit his season averages in points and rebounds (12 each).
Rodney Hood will continue to provide an offensive spark for Utah. The athletic guard is averaging 18 points per game this season and will be a tough matchup for the Magic perimeter defenders.
