The Orlando Magic play their final game before the Christmas holiday Monday when they host the New York Knicks at Amway Center.

Tipoff between Orlando and New York is set for 7:00 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM in Orlando. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 5:00 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic couldn't contain the Sacramento Kings from three-point range in Saturday's 105-100 loss, their fourth straight at Amway Center. The Kings shot 12-of-23 from beyond the arc, with Marcus Thornton's trio of fourth-quarter triples keying an 18-4 scoring run which gave the visitors control for good.

New York's last time out: The Knicks fell to the Memphis Grizzlies, 95-87, in a Saturday matinée at Madison Square Garden. Former Knicks big man Zach Randolph posted 25 points and 15 rebounds, negating Carmelo Anthony's 30-point effort.
