Your Orlando Magic starting lineup:

Posted Image
Jameer Nelson

Posted Image
JJ Redick

Posted Image
Aaron Afflalo

Posted Image
Glen Davis

Posted Image
Nikola Vucevic

Key Bench:
Andrew Nicholson
Josh McRoberts
E'Twuan Moore

Note: My guess is Redick will move to the SL with AA shifting to the 3.

Visiting Phoenix Suns Starting Lineup:

Posted Image
Goran Dragic

Posted Image
Michael Beasley

Posted Image
Jared Dudley

Posted Image
Luis Scola

Posted Image
Marcin Gortat

Key Bench:
Shannon Brown
Markieff Morris
Sebastian Telfair

Matchup of the night: Beasley vs. Afflalo

Thoughts and predictions: Our defense should be focused on containing Dragic and Beasley. I expect to see heavy pick and roll action with Dragic and Gortat/Scola on the receiving end so if we can maintain defensive positioning we should be okay. I think we will see some iso Beasley so Aaron Afflalo must step up and force Beasley to shoot jumpers. Another thing is to box out. Gortat is an above average offensive rebounder and can finish around the rim with ease.

Offensively, we have to play unselfishly as we have no prolific scorer to give the ball to. Our bench will be very weak if JJ starts so someone off the bench has to step up. My guess is E'Twuan Moore.

I expect a low scoring game, something like a 90-85 Suns final.

Who do you think will be wearing suits tonight, other than Hedo?

Harrington and Goose.
If Moe and Jones are healthy enough then I think they need to suit up.

I hope E'twuan Moore steps up again tonight. I was impressed with what I saw out there by him and I wouldn't be surprised to see him as our 6th man if JJ moves into the starting rotation. Furthermore, I don't think Hedo being out will affect us too bad. We're stacked with bigs and seem to have soom versatility with our guards. I just hope Moe comes back soon. I think we'll need him for Brooklyn.

I wish we hadn't have traded Gortat, I really liked his game! That being said a few years from now Nikola will be awesome and we will be great again and in the meantime... GO MAGIC!!!
Watch the MAGIC shock the world and win the 2013 2014 2015 2016 championship...

This team needs to find a PF to replace Tony Battie. Sign Chris Webber.

I thought Vaughn had said he intended to keep JJ as the sixth man? That being said who else can start on the wing? So maybe you're right.

Moore can start at the 2, Jones at the 3. Afflalo would play opposite whichever one starts.
