Orlando hits the road Sunday against a championship-contending team.

The Orlando Magic start a tough back-to-back set Monday when they visit the Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Tipoff between Orlando and Oklahoma City 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 returned home from a six-game, 12-day roadtrip Friday and fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers, 109-100, as Cleveland used a 14-0 run in the fourth quarter to take a 10-point advantage. Victor Oladipo tied a career-high with 26 points, while Jameer Nelson added 17, but the pair couldn't match the Cavs' backcourt. Kyrie Irving scored a game-high 31, and Dion Waiters added 21 off the bench.

Oklahoma City's last time out: OKC blasted the Los Angeles Lakers, 122-97, on Friday to improve to 11-0 at home. Kevin Durant scored 31 points on 10-of-13 shooting from the floor to lead the Thunder, and three other OKC players scored 19 apiece.
