Magic at Bobcats: Lottery implications abound as league's worst meet

Mike Dunlap - Marc Serota

The league's two worst teams clash Wednesday in Charlotte.

The league's worst teams square off Wednesday when the Orlando Magic visit the Charlotte Bobcats at Time Warner Cable Arena. Tipoff is set for 7 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida in the Orlando market. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 5 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic put up a solid fight against the streaking Miami Heat, but fell by a 108-94 final thanks to a late 20-2 run that Miami put together. Jameer Nelson poured in 27 points and 12 assists, both game-highs, but Orlando had no answer for the Heat's three-point shooting: Miami sank 15 triples.

Charlotte's last time out: The Bobcats are also coming off a home loss to Miami, though theirs was less close: the Heat outscored the Bobcats in every quarter on Sunday to coast to a 109-77 win. Kemba Walker scored 20 points on 7-of-21 shooting for Charlotte, which shot 33.8 percent for the game.

The last meeting: In the teams' first game after the All-Star Break, Charlotte came up with an easy win. The Bobcats, one of the league's worst offensive teams, lit up the host Magic for 37 first-quarter points en route to a 105-92 win. Walker and Gerald Henderson scored 24 points apiece, while Byron Mullens had 20 points and 12 boards. Six Magic players scored in double-figures, but Orlando simply couldn't defend Charlotte.
