The Orlando Magic will make their second straight appearance on NBA TV Fan Night this Tuesday, December 21st, when they host the Dallas Mavericks at Amway Center. The NBA announced the results of the voting, which enables fans to select one Tuesday night game to air nationally on NBA TV, earlier this afternoon. As was the case last week, when fans supported the Magic's game against the Denver Nuggets, the voting was not particularly close; 81 percent of the poll respondents selected the Magic/Mavericks game. The game airs at 7 PM Eastern, with the NBA TV studio crew of Ernie Johnson, Chris Webber, and Kevin McHale coming on to preview the game at 6:30.
As Orlando will not play the following Tuesday, it can't extend its streak of Fan Night appearances to three straight. Perhaps, though, it can end its Fan Night losing streak, as Denver handed it a 17-point defeat a few nights ago.
Every Tuesday through Thursday this season, fans can visit nba.com/nbatv/fannight to cast their ballot for one game to air the following Tuesday on NBA TV.
