One night after upsetting the Golden State Warriors, the Orlando Magic take to the road for a showdown with the Charlotte Bobcats. Tipoff is set for 7:30 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida in the Orlando market. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 5:30 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.
The Bobcats, who set a single-season record for worst winning percentage in the lockout-shortened campaign, jumped out to a 7-5 start on the season. They've known nothing but misery since, however, having lost 10 straight games since that start, beginning with a 45-point loss against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Orlando's won only two of its last five games, so it doesn't enter Saturday's contest as any sort of juggernaut. Still, the Bobcats don't figure to present the Magic many challenges.
The Magic lost in their last visit to the Queen City, ending a streak of seven consecutive regular-season wins at Time Warner Cable Arena for Orlando.
