Now, here's a look at the Magic's upcoming schedule this week:
Tuesday, March 12th: Magic vs Los Angeles Lakers, 7 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Florida
The Lakers, with former Magic center Dwight Howard and former Magic players Earl Clark and Chris Duhon, make their only appearance in Orlando this season. They are on a roll, having won 16 of their last 22 games, and currently hold the final playoff spot in the West. The Magic had one of their most impressive wins earlier in the season against the Lakers, winning 113-103 in LA in December.
Friday, March 15th: Magic at Oklahoma City Thunder, 8 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Florida
This will be the first of two meetings within a week's time between the two teams. The Thunder, led by league scoring leader Kevin Durant and point guard Russell Westbrook, are the second seed in the West and have the NBA's third best record.
Sunday, March 17th: Magic at Milwaukee Bucks, 1 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Florida
The Magic, after losing in Milwaukee in February 107-98, make their second and final visit to Milwaukee this season, and will be facing former teammate J.J. Redick for the first time. The Bucks are playing well since the trade for Redick, and hold the final playoff spot in the East.
