Magic at Rockets: Orlando wraps Texas trip against familiar foe

The Orlando Magic, hoping to build off Monday's preseason win in Dallas, head to Space City on Wednesday for a matchup against Dwight Howard and the Houston Rockets..

Tipoff between Orlando and Houston is set for 8 PM Eastern on NBA TV and ESPN 580 AM in Orlando. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 6 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: With a strong effort from its mostly anonymous players--the camp invitees scrapping for an NBA job--the Magic earned a 102-94 victory against the Dallas Mavericks on Monday. Maurice Harkless scored a team-high 16 points, while Victor Oladipo finished with 12 points, 11 rebounds, and three assists in his first NBA start.

Houston's last time out: The Rockets played the second of two exhibitions against the Indiana Pacers on Sunday, prevailing by a 107-98 final at Taipei Arena in Taiwan. James Harden led Houston with 21 points, while Jeremy Lin added 17 on 6-of-8 shooting from the floor as the Rockets improved to 2-1.

In 2012/13: Houston swept, but narrowly, the season-series from Orlando with two eight-point victories. In the first game, the Rockets rallied behind Harden in Orlando; in the second meeting, the Magic scrapped back--they trailed by 18 after the first quarter--to get to within five points of Houston in the final 90 seconds.
