Losers of seven of their last eight games, the Orlando Magic visit the Atlanta Hawks looking to rediscover their winning ways. Tuesday's game will challenge the Magic, who haven't beaten the Hawks in a regular-season road game in four years.

Tipoff between Orlando and Atlanta is set for 7:30 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM in Orlando. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 5:30 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic's losing streak reached four Sunday against the Phoenix Suns despite Nik Vučević 20-point, 10-rebound effort and 19 bench points from Andrew Nicholson. Orlando yielded 48.4 percent shooting and 11 three-pointers to the Goran Dragić-led Suns: the Slovenian point guard scored Phoenix's last seven points to put the game away, finishing with 23 points and 13 assists. The victory was Phoenix's first in Orlando since 2007.

Atlanta's last time out: The Hawks shot just 38.7 percent from the floor in a 94-87 home loss to the Boston Celtics on Saturday. Franchise big man Al Horford scored 18 points on 19 shots to lead Atlanta, which allowed six Celtics to score in double-figures.

Lightly regarded forward Mike Scott scored a season-high 17 off the bench. Arron Afflalo finished with 21 points and seven assists in defeat.
