The Orlando Magic visit the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday looking to end their 10-game road losing streak. Tipoff is set for 7 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida in the Orlando market. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 5 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic kept the score close Saturday against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but fell apart after halftime and ultimately lost, 118-94, as the three new players they acquired at Thursday's trade deadline made their pinstriped débuts. Tobias Harris had 14 points in 25 minutes, while Beno Udrih scored 10 with seven assists and two assists and Doron Lamb went scoreless in 10 minutes. Marreese Speights led seven Cavs in double-figures with 18 off the bench.

Philadelphia's last time out: The Sixers dropped their fifth straight game on Sunday as they visited Madison Square Garden to face the New York Knicks. Philly trailed by 12 at halftime before rallying in the second half to make the score more respectable. All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday scored 30 points with five boards and five assists in defeat.

The last meeting: Philly cruised past an injury-depleted Magic squad, 78-61, on February 4th. Injuries kept Jameer Nelson, Arron Afflalo, Glen Davis, and J.J. Redick--i.e., the Magic's four top scorers--out of Orlando's lineup and left the team with just nine guys in uniform. In Nelson's place, E'Twaun Moore scored 18 points, and a late triple by Josh McRoberts kept alive Orlando's streak of consecutive games with at least one made three-pointer. Davis and Nelson will miss Tuesday's game as well, as will Redick and McRoberts, as Orlando traded them on Thursday.
