Basketball Betting: Orlando Magic vs. San Antonio Spurs

March 14, 2012 NBA Basketball

Amidst conjecture over whether or not Superman himself, Dwight Howard, will be part of the Magic after Thursday’s trading deadline, Orlando travels to the AT&T Center in the Alamo city for a matchup with San Antonio beginning at 8:30 ET. Considering the distraction, they are coming off a very impressive 104-98 overtime victory over the Heat and its big three in a home affair Tuesday night. Howard may even let coach Stan Van Gundy keep his job for awhile after that one.

In fairness to Howard, he’s pretty darned good, as evidenced by his 24 points and 25 rebounds in the come from behind victory over the Heat. This was his eighth 20/20 this year and his career fortieth. Quite impressive! Jameer Nelson led Orlando with 25 points, registering almost half of them (12) in the fourth quarter and overtime. The Magic overcame 24 turnovers and a 20-0 Miami run before emerging with the victory. They held the Heat to two field goals out of eleven attempts during the overtime period with Dwayne Wade scoring both.

Unlike the circus atmosphere surrounding the Magic, all is relatively quiet on the western front for the Spurs. Although they have shown little consistency of late, losing every other game while posting a 4-4 mark in their last eight. Prior to that, they had been cruising along with eleven wins in a row. They beat the lowly Wizards on Monday night 112-97. In that one, Mr. Consistency himself, Tony Parker scored 31 points. The Spurs have tended to beat up on the bottom feeders, while having little succes against the leagues elite. More problems may await San Antonio if Manu Ginobeli is unable to play. He experienced a hip flexor in the game Monday and his status is uncertain for tonight. Check the Baskteball Odds for Orlando Magic vs. San Antonio Spurs game
