An NBA matchup of super big men is on tap for Tuesday night as Shaquille O’Neal and the Phoenix Suns face Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic.
This is the first meeting of the season between the two teams as Orlando tries to break a six-game losing streak to the Suns.
Two of the top teams from the Eastern Conference will square off in an interesting showdown between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Orlando Magic. The Magic will host the event at Amway Arena where they sport a 17-6 record this season. Cleveland has descent 14-8 road record this year keeping in mind they are a perfect 21-0 at home. However, this game will not be in Cleveland and this game is getting a lot of attention considering both teams have likely chances to meet during the playoffs. The game marks the first meeting between the Magic and Cavs this season while they both split the two meetings a year ago. Cleveland owns the best winning percentage in the NBA at 81.4% and they will also be going for their 5th straight win on Thursday night.
The Orlando Magic couldn’t quite pull off the upset in game two against the Detroit Pistons on Monday but they know it can be done. They just need to avoid making mistakes and not panic. They had their moments in Monday’s 100-93 loss at Detroit but could not handle the pressure late in the game.
The Atlanta Hawks will probably already be in the playoffs when they host the Orlando Magic on Tuesday night. Indiana had to win at Washington on Tuesday to keep their playoff hopes alive and that was unlikely, which means the Hawks would get the eight spot in the East.
