With 30 games remaining in their season, the Orlando Magic have lost 24 of their last 27 games, and currently have the second-worst record in the NBA.
Before listing the schedule, Orlando Pinstriped Post would like to recognize BigMac12111 for winning the All-Star Weekend prediction contest.
Here are the four games on tap for the Magic this week:
Tuesday, February 19th: Magic vs Charlotte Bobcats, 7 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Florida
Charlotte, at 12-40, is the only team in the NBA with a worse record than Orlando, but the Magic are only three games ahead of the Bobcats. The two teams split their two games earlier in 2012/13, with both teams winning on the other team's home court.
Wednesday, February 20th: Magic at Dallas Mavericks, 8:30 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Florida
Dallas is currently the eleventh seed in the West. The Mavericks will be looking to sweep the Magic in their two-game season series, with Dallas having won in Orlando last month.
Friday, February 22nd: Magic at Memphis Grizzlies, 8 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Florida
The Grizzlies are a decidedly different team, having traded away small forward Rudy Gay and obtaining forwards Tayshaun Prince, Ed Davis, and Austin Daye in January as part of a three-team trade. They are fourth in the West, and will be facing the Magic for the first time in 2012/13.
Saturday, February 23rd: Magic vs Cleveland Cavaliers, 7 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Florida
The Cavaliers and Magic are neck-and-neck in the Eastern Conference standings, having split two games earlier in 2012/13. Orlando will have to find a way to slow down Cavaliers All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, who won the Three-Point Contest All-Star weekend.
