The Orlando Magic host the streaking Golden State Warriors on Friday at Amway Center. Tipoff is set for 7 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida in the Orlando market. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 5 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.
Since losing to the Magic on December 3rd, Golden State has won five consecutive games, all of them away from ORACLE Arena. Most recently, they stunned the Miami Heat on Wednesday as rookie swingman Draymond Green made the game-winning basket. At 15-7, the Warriors own the fifth-best record in the Western Conference.
While the Warriors were upsetting the Heat, Orlando was faltering against the Atlanta Hawks. Wednesday's loss was Orlando's third in four games since beating Golden State, making Friday's a matchup between two teams heading in opposite directions.
