Tonight: Magic @ Bulls

8:00 PM, Fox Sports Net Florida:

Riding a 2-0 record since the Rafer Alston trade last week, the Orlando Magic will try to keep the good vibes flowing tonight against the new-look Bulls in Chicago. This is the third meeting between the teams this year, with Orlando winning the previous two. On November 3 Orlando won at home, 96-93. Dwight led Orlando with 22 points and 15 boards while now former Bull Drew Gooden put in 21. On New Years Eve Orlando traveled up to Chicago and whipped up on the Bulls 113-94. The Magic had 7 players in double figures, led by Rashard Lewis' 21. Former Gator Joakim Noah had 19 for the Bulls, upping on the 17 he scored against Orlando in the November 3rd matchup.

Chicago made some changes last week and will come out with a drastically different starting lineup tonight. Against the Pacers on Sunday the Bulls started Luol Deng, Tyrus Thomas, Joakim Noah, Ben Gordon, and Derrick Rose. New Bull's Brad Miller came off the bench, as did John Salmons and Tim Thomas.
Also, Hedo and his wife are due to have their first baby on Thursday. Said Hedo:

"I have my first child coming and we're very excited about it and on the other hand I still have to do my job... I just have to try to get better every day and do stuff to make that happen every day. And then you try not to worry about anything else while realizing I need to handle my business on the court."

That's right Hedo, do stuff to make that happen every day.
