Orlando's last time out: The Magic finished their five-game roadtrip with a loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday. Without its four leading scorers, Orlando managed just 61 points, a season-low, and shot 33.8 percent from the floor. Second-year guard E'Twaun Moore scored 18 points on 9-of-17 shooting to pace the visiting Magic. The loss was their 10th straight.
L.A.'s last time out: Monday's loss to the Washington Wizards continued the Clippers' slide in the West standings. Jamal Crawford scored 28 points in 33 minutes off L.A.'s bench, while Eric Bledsoe tallied 17 points and nine assists in his eighth straight start in relief of All-Star point guard Chris Paul. Washington committed 12 turnovers to the Clippers' 20, helping it seal the win.
The last meeting: The Magic upset the Clippers at STAPLES Center on January 12th, 104-101, with a trio of brilliant late-game plays by J.J. Redick. The veteran shooting guard hit a go-ahead three-pointer with 42.1 seconds to play, and later took a key charge against Crawford. He set up the Magic's clinching basket by dishing out of a double-team to Josh McRoberts, who then found Nikola Vučević for an uncontested dunk.
