Magic vs. Grizzlies: Teams wrap season series

Mike Conley - USA TODAY Sports

A shorthanded Orlando squad nearly beat Memphis the day after the trade deadline.

The Orlando Magic and Memphis Grizzlies conclude their season series Sunday evening. Tipoff is set for 6 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida in the Orlando market. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 4 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic hung around the high-octane Houston Rockets for most of Friday's game, only to yield a late 14-4 scoring run en route to losing, 118-110. Tobias Harris led all scorers with 27 points off Orlando's bench, but seven Rockets scored at least nine points. Houston shot 54.5 percent from the field and 46.9 percent on threes.

Memphis' last time out: The Miami Heat ended Memphis' eight-game winning streak on Friday night, 98-91. Marc Gasol contributed 24 points, nine rebounds, four assists, and a blocked shot in a losing effort. Three-point shooting made a big difference in the game, with Miami's 10-of-19 mark trumping the Grizzlies' 4-of-13 showing. Heat forward Shane Battier hit four triples of his own to help sink his former club.

The last meeting: Due in part to the trade which brought Harris, Doron Lamb, and Beno Udrih to the Magic, Orlando had just seven players available for its visit to Memphis on February 22nd. Arron Afflalo scored 20 points and Maurice Harkless added 19, but their contributions simply weren't enough as the Grizzlies eked out an 88-82 win. A layup by Harkless cut Memphis' lead to three points with 4:22 to play, but Memphis would score six straight points over the next two minutes to put the game out of reach.
