Here's a look at the Magic's schedule for the upcoming week:
Monday, March 25th, Magic vs. Miami Heat, 7 PM Eastern, ESPN and Fox Sports Florida
The Magic have played the Heat extremely tough this season, losing the first game in overtime and the second game in the final seconds. Dwyane Wade may or may not play for Miami, but Orlando will be without starting shooting guard Arron Afflalo and possibly center Nik Vucevic, who is recovering from a concussion.
Wednesday, March 27th, Magic at Charlotte Bobcats, 7 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Florida
This will be a battle between the two bottom-feeders of the NBA. The Magic beat the Bobcats in Charlotte in December, and need a victory to obtain a split in their four-game season series.
Friday, March 29th, Magic vs. Washington Wizards, 7 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Florida
The Wizards are playing their best basketball of the season, as point guard John Wall returns to health. The Magic beat the Wizards in Orlando in December, and need a victory to obtain a split in their four-game season series.
Saturday, March 30th, Magic at Atlanta Hawks, 7 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Florida
The Magic have had their problems with the Hawks over the last couple of years, including losing all three games this season.
