Magic at Wizards
Happy Turkey Day! (If only someone in the NFL office would wake up and take that game away from the Lions. Either that or find a way to bring Barry Sanders back. My goodness)

Wizards starters: JaVale McGee, Antawn Jamison, Caron Butler, DeShawn Stevenson, Dee Brown. Record as a group: 1-3. All others: 1-7.

Notables: This is the second of four meetings between the teams this season. On Nov. 8, the Magic beat the Wizards 106-81 thanks to a 31-point, 16-rebound game by Dwight Howard...In his last five games, Caron Butler is averaging 24.6 points and 7.6 rebounds per game...Antawn Jamison already has posted eight double-doubles, putting him on pace to surpass last season's 44....DeShawn Stevenson continues too look for his shooting touch but he has averaged 6.8 assists in the last four games....The Magic has won five straight road games including last night's 96-94 victory at Philadelphia.
-Antonio Daniels will be in uniform after missing the last two games with soreness in his right knee.
-Coach Ed Tapscott's message to Dee Brown, who will make his fifth start at point guard:
"I told Dee: you are never wrong if you throw it to Caron or Antawn. I'll just make it simple for him. Run the offense, run the defense and do all of those things but you are never wrong if you throw it to one of those two."
