Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson - USA TODAY Sports

Orlando narrowly lost to the Hornets at home in December.

The Orlando Magic begin a quick, two-game road swing Monday night against the New Orleans Hornets. Tipoff is set for 8 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida in the Orlando market. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 6 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic never led and trailed by as many as 33 points in Sunday's blowout loss against the Memphis Grizzlies. Three Orlando players scored 12 points apiece, while Tayshaun Prince led all players with 14 for Memphis. The Grizzlies picked apart the Magic's defense with a precise attack, shooting 53 percent from the field, 45.8 percent from three-point range, and by tallying assists on 31 of their 44 baskets.

New Orleans' last time out: The Hornets opened their March schedule with a 100-95 win against the Detroit Pistons on Friday. Point guard Greivis Vásquez scored a team-best 25 points, while Eric Gordon added 21 in just 30 minutes. Former Magic forward Ryan Anderson tallied 19 points and 13 boards in the win, which ended a two-game losing streak.
