Your Orlando Magic starting lineup:
Note: My guess is Redick will move to the SL with AA shifting to the 3.
Visiting Phoenix Suns Starting Lineup:
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.
