Wizards at Magic, 7

WHERE: TD Waterhouse Centre.

RECORDS: Wizards 40-30; Magic 34-37.

BROADCAST: TV -- Sun Sports; Radio -- 580 AM (WDBO); Spanish -- 1030 AM (WONQ).

MAGIC UPDATE: They signed point guard Andre Barrett to a 10-day contract and released Mark Jones. Barrett, who practiced with the team Thursday, is expected to see action immediately. He is small (5-10) but quick. He spent most of this season with the Houston Rockets but was waived March 19. Jameer Nelson remains on the sideline, but the Magic are hoping he can return sometime next week.

WIZARDS UPDATE: They are without Antawn Jamison, who is on the injured list with tendinitis of the right knee, but they have continued to win without him. They still have a potent backcourt with Gilbert Arenas and Larry Hughes. Kwame Brown is playing again after missing a month with an ankle problem. The Wizards are in the No. 4 playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, which would give them home-court advantage in the first round.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Who will play with the most urgency? The Wizards want to hang onto that home-court advantage. The Magic need a win to stay in playoff contention. The Magic beat the Wizards in back-to-back games in late January, but much has changed since then.

Needless to say this is a huge game. Orlando needs all the wins they can get if they want to make the playoffs and we've got a lot of tough teams coming up.

Steve Francis is going to have to be the man tonight.

Yeah, but I dont worry about Grant and Dwight showing up. They almost always do. Francis is going to have to be big against Arenas.

Dwight picks up his third foul in the first. WTF? What a bogus call. Thomas is throwing 'bows in there. And it was a late call, just let them play.

Steve-O almost threw down the sickest dunk I've ever seen.

The refs hate the Magic, there's two guys on the Magic with THREE fouls in the first. Ridiculous.

Is anybody else watching this game? :laugh:

Holy crap, Barrett has 4 fouls a minute into the 2nd. The Wiz are on fire, up by 10.

I have never seen so many ticky tack fouls in my life. Wait a minute. We are the Magic. Most nights we play 5 on 8 any way so why is it a surprise?

The Magic can't buy a bucket in the 2nd. It seems once Howard got his 3rd foul, it took the wind right out of them.

A mini run at the end, corresponding with the return of Howard, gets us back to within 14 at the half.
