The NBA action over ESPN TV will get started at 8PM Eastern Time with the Mavericks and Magic. The Orlando Magic has won three straight games leading up to their Wednesday night game at the New York Knicks. The Magic continues to launch three pointers as their fate is usually determined whether or not those long outside shots are falling. Orlando hits on 38.4% from three which is 2nd best in the NBA. Dallas will be in a bit of a tough spot on Friday night as they will be facing the Miami Heat on Thursday night. Heading into Thursday the Mavericks were on a two game win streak and six wins over their past eight games. Dirk Nowitzki has gotten his act together on the offensive end of the court since the All Star break and has moved up his point per game average up to 21 points a game.

Immediately following over on ESPN TV at 10:30PM Eastern Time it’s the Clippers and Trailblazers. The Clippers were under some turmoil as the club has not met the expectations on the court. Following a 0-3 road trip the team has won two straight at home entering play on Wednesday night against Phoenix. What we have seen from the Clippers in recent games has been horrendous play on the defensive end of the court. Heading into Wednesday’s game the LA Clippers have allowed their past five opponents to shoot for a mind numbing 50% from the field. The Portland Trailblazers are suffering through a bad year for their standards. Entering play on Wednesday they sit four games out of the eight spot in the Western conference and will most likely be a lottery team in the 2011-12 season. The problem all season with this team has been the inefficient play of their three guard rotation of Wesley Matthews, Jamal Crawford and Raymond Felton. With all the changes the team made at the trading deadline they are still left with their three bad parts.
