ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The Phoenix Suns are on a long East Coast road trip. It starts tonight in Orlando against the Magic.

Hoping for momentum from their big win over the Lakers Sunday, Phoenix meets an Orlando team that suffered a blowout loss to Chicago, a home loss to the Pistons and close wins against the Knicks and Philadelphia.

Orlando features Dwight Howard who is averaging 21 points and 14 rebounds.

The Magic's Rafer Alston has averaged 11 points and six assists since Orlando acquired him to replace injured point guard Jameer Nelson.
