The Orlando Magic are winless in their last nine games, and that streak could well continue into the 15th week of their season, with tough, playoff-caliber teams on the schedule.
Before getting to the schedule, Orlando Pinstriped Post would like to recognize khlotsesh and TheGiantSquid for winning last week's fan prediction contest. khlotsesh earned a share of the top honors for the fourth consecutive week. Visit OPP on game days to enter the prediction contest.
The schedule for the coming week listed below. All times listed are Eastern.
Monday: Magic at Philadelphia 76ers, 7 PM, Fox Sports Florida
Philly has a young All-Star point guard in Jrue Holiday, but remains 3.5 games out of the East's final playoff spot.
Wednesday: Magic vs. Los Angeles Clippers, 7 PM, Fox Sports Florida
The best team in L.A. has won just four times in its last 10 tries, and Orlando's already beaten the Clippers once in 2012/13.
Friday: Magic at Cleveland Cavaliers, 7:30 PM, Fox Sports Florida
This game could have lottery implications for both teams, who figure to need some help from those ping-pong balls so they can add to their respective cores.
Sunday: Magic vs. Portland Trail Blazers, 6 PM, Fox Sports Florida
The Blazers remain in the playoff hunt, but are just 7-15 away from the Rose Garden.
