Orlando's last time out: The Magic allowed the Brooklyn Nets to torch them on Monday, 97-77, behind 20 points from Deron Williams and a total of 13 made three-pointers. Orlando swingman Arron Afflalo missed the game due to a strained left calf. Nikola Vučević led Orlando with 18 points and nine boards.
New York's last time out: The Knicks edged the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday, 105-104, as Carmelo Anthony scored the go-ahead three-point play with 12.5 seconds to go. That play gave Anthony 42 points on the night, a feat he accomplished with only three free-throw attempts as he set a New York franchise record with nine made three-pointers.
The last meeting: Anthony scored 16 of his game-high 40 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Knicks past the Magic. Afflalo and Jameer Nelson scored 29 apiece, but the Magic couldn't get a stop or record a key basket of their own. The Knicks owned the fourth quarter, outscoring the host team by a 33-17 margin.
