Detroit should own Orland in the paint with Drummond and Monroe. I am glad to see Josh Smith playing more and more unselfish and distributing the ball more and more; not saying that he is a point guard but it's good to see him passing the ball little more lately.

Detroit's offense is clicking on the road. They posted triple diggits in their last 7 road games and the Magic are 0-17 when they allowed at least 97 points. Stopping Detroit's offense is key for Orlando to cover. To be honest I don't see that happening tonight.

My call here is Detroit minus the point : Det -3,5

10 straight overs on the line for detroit tonight...Will the streak be stopped and finally get an under?? Or does detroit make it 11 straight overs tonight?  Crapshoot to me on the total...I would almost flip a coin to decide which way I will bet...

Can't see how the streak should end tonight. Vucevic and Davis vs Drummond and Monroe >> not matching very well. Orlando's E'Twaun Moor ruled out  with a bruised thigh for tonight according to rotoworld.com depth charts so look for Jameer Nelson and Victor Oladipo to play more minutes. The only bright spot I can see here is Arron Afflalo to lift Orlando tonight.  Don't expect much contribution from Orlando's bench. Even with the early lead it should be hard for Orlando to close the game late in the 4th when fatigue kicks in. Detroit's frontcourt and bench all day long.

Has to be over.

Both Teams aren't great protecting the 3 Point line (36.7 vs 38.1), Give up a combined 35 FTM/ 43 FTA a game.

I have no doubts about Detroit scoring but if they leave the arc open they will get scolded by guys like Affalo, Harris, Nicholson, Moore and Nelson.
