Jazz vs. Magic Preview

December 21st, 2009 | by Spencer Hall

Dwight Howard plays well at Venice Beach.

Just a few notes before tonight’s game:

  • I hope the stat geeks out there are having a good time with http://hoopdata.com
  • Join in the ESPN Dime Live chat during the game and make some good comments.
  • If the Flash play a Sunday afternoon game in North Dakota, and lose 81-85 to the Wizards, does it make a sound? The Flash blew a 22 point lead and let the Wizards take their first lead of the game with only 34 seconds left. Utah gets a chance to redeem themselves with a rematch in Bizmarck on Tuesday.
  • The Jazz just need to win one of their next two games (Orlando tonight, Miami on Wednesday) to go 3-2 on their pre-Christmas road trip. Despite bizarre losses to Minnesota and Atlanta, etc, I’m encouraged by some of the nice play on the road.
  • Boozer plans to spend a little time at Dwight Howard’s house while in Orlando. Sounds great for team chemistry! On a related note, Larry Bird just rolled over in his grave.
  • Orlando comes into the game as an 82% favorite.
