Injuries: Orlando - Dave Corzine, knee (out); Sam Vincent, toe (out).Dallas - Adrian Dantley, broken leg (out).
Game notes: Dallas has played well for new coach Richie Adubato, who replaced John MacLeod early in the season. One constant for the Mavericks has been the play of Rolando Blackman and Derek Harper, two of the league's finest guards. The Magic is playing Dallas for the first time. Next season, the Magic will join the Midwest Division.
Point guard Scott Skiles will start his second consecutive game in place of the injured Sam Vincent. Skiles had 17 points and seven assists against Atlanta. Rookie Michael Ansley continues to impress. He had 24 points and 14 rebounds against Atlanta and is averaging 7.9 points and 4.8 rebounds while playing just 15 minutes a game.
Next game: The Magic plays host to the Seattle SuperSonics on Tuesday night at Orlando Arena.
