Trail Blazers @ Magic Game Thread
This game features a great duel down low as JJ Hickson and Nikola Vucevic will fight for inside position all game long. In their last meeting, both players put up double-doubles with neither gaining the upper hand. Hickson put up 20 points, on 9-14 shooting to go along with a game-high 15 rebounds while Vucevic put in 17 points, on 8-16 shooting and pulled down 13 rebounds. Vucevic has been one of the biggest surprises around the league since coming to Orlando from Philadelphia in a summer trade and is one of the Magic's most potent offensive weapons. If JJ can play Nikola to a stand-still, or better yet, win the individual matchup, that will bode well for the Trail Blazers' chances in this one.
