Washington Wizards at Orlando Magic

Thursday October 28, 2010 8:00 PM EST

Line: Orlando -13.5

Orlando comes into this NBA season with a goal, win an NBA championship. After falling short the previous 2 seasons, they have some work to do. The Wizards are looking to improve on a disappointing season in which they won the lottery and got #1 overall pick John Wall.

What to watch for:

  • 20 year old rookie John Wall will be center stage in this one. Not the easiest opponent to go up against. Orlando is a very good defensive team and has a game named Dwight Howard on their squad. Wall will have to look to get some of his other teammates involved and not turn the ball over.
  • Gilbert Arenas has had some major issues the last couple of seasons. Last season he was suspended due to a gun confrontation that happened in an arena after a game. He also has had major injury problems and brings in a bum ankle into this one. A healthy Arenas could mean a lot to the Wizards.
  • The 2 time defending defensive player, Dwight Howard, will be huge in this game. He will control the boards on offense and defense. Many analyst are already saying Howard has the best odds to upset Lebron in the MVP running this season.
  • The Magic will look at newcomer Quentin Richardson to contribute right away. Richardson is 30 but will look to help out Vince Carter who is 33. This could help Carter because many critics are already deeming Carter too old and washed up.

The Magic have one of the best starting 5 in the NBA. Dwight Howard will need help from his surrounding cast of shooters if they look to make a push towards their goal. The Wizards are in a tough spot coming into the season. They have good young talent in John Wall andAndray Blatch. Leadership is going to be in question with Gilbert Arenas as the “leader”. I could easily see the Wizards trying to trade Arenas this season. The Magic have too much talent in their starting 5 and on their bench. They will get it done at home in their season opener.

BREAKING NEWS: Gilbert Arenas will not play in this game. Expect the Wizards to struggle scoring points even more vs this Magic defense.
