| | Magic scouting report
WHERE: Bradley Center, Milwaukee.
RECORDS: Magic 13-41. Bucks 27-24.
BROADCAST: TV -- Sunshine Network; RADIO -- 580 AM (WDBO); Spanish-language radio, 1440 AM (WPRD).
MAGIC UPDATE: Orlando returned to practice Monday after a four-day break for all-star weekend. Tracy McGrady was excused from practice after playing Sunday night in Los Angeles and flying all night to return home. He met the team at the airport before they left for Milwaukee. Also missing practice was Drew Gooden, whose flight home was delayed. Gooden will be fined for the unexcused absence but went to Milwaukee with the team.
BUCKS UPDATE: Milwaukee just completed a three-team trade that brought Keith Van Horn from New York, but it cost them Tim Thomas and Joel Przybilla. The Bucks, under first-year Coach Terry Porter, have had a surprisingly good season but went into the all-star break having lost four of their previous five games.
WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Some teams come out of the all-star break sluggishly. The Magic seek to snap a seven-game losing streak. Although they have talked about playing for pride, they will have a tough time finding anyone who is an easy mark.
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
