Orlando's last time out: The Magic kept pace with the Golden State Warriors for much of Tuesday's game, trailing by only 10 at halftime, but the hosts used an 18-0 run in the third period to take command of the game for good. Tobias Harris scored 14 points and snared six rebounds off Orlando's bench, and Maurice Harkless put together an efficient 12-point, four-board night.
Phoenix's last time out: The Suns' two-game winning streak ended Monday at the hands of the Brooklyn Nets, 108-95, despite 35 combined points from Gerald Green and Markieff Morris off the bench. The Suns shot 46.3 percent from the floor but lost due to poor defense: Brooklyn connected on 58.6 percent of its shots, including nine treys, in its win.
The last meeting: Back on November 24th, the Suns topped the Magic, 104-96, in Orlando behind an outstanding performance by Goran Dragić. The veteran combo guard tallied 23 points, 13 assists, and no turnovers to lead Phoenix to victory. Nikola Vučević posted 20 points and 10 boards in defeat.
