Magic vs. Bucks: Struggling teams meet in Orlando

Gary Neal - Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Magic have lost three straight, while the Bucks have dropped two in a row. One of those streaks will end Wednesday in Orlando.

The Orlando Magic, losers of three straight games, return to Amway Center on Wednesday to host the Milwaukee Bucks.

Tipoff between Orlando and Milwaukee is set for 7:00 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM in Orlando. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 5:00 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic dipped to 3-5 on Monday with a 120-105 loss to the Boston Celtics, who converted 60 percent of their shots on the night. Avery Bradley scored 24 points on 10-of-15 shooting--without attempting even a single three-pointer--to lead seven Celtics in double-figure scoring. The Magic placed seven in double-digits themselves.

Milwaukee's last time out: The Bucks come to Orlando after visiting Miami Heat on Tuesday, with Miami cruising to a 118-95 win. The injury-ravaged Bucks did not have Ersan Ilyasova or LARRY SANDERS!--arguably the team's two best players--available against the defending champions.

In 2012/13: Orlando went 1-2 against the Bucks in 2012/13, most recently using a remarkable combined effort from NikV Vučević and Tobias Harris to rally past Milwaukee in overtime on April 10th in what would mark the Magic's last win of the season. Harris had 30 points--including the tying three-pointer to force overtime with 1.9 seconds to play in regulation--19 rebounds, and five assists against his former club; Vučević added 30 points, 20 rebounds, five assists, a steal, and two blocks of his own.
