The league's worst teams square off Wednesday when the Orlando Magic visit the Charlotte Bobcats at Time Warner Cable Arena. 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 put up a solid fight against the streaking Miami Heat, but fell by a 108-94 final thanks to a late 20-2 run that Miami put together. Jameer Nelson poured in 27 points and 12 assists, both game-highs, but Orlando had no answer for the Heat's three-point shooting: Miami sank 15 triples.

Charlotte's last time out: The Bobcats are also coming off a home loss to Miami, though theirs was less close: the Heat outscored the Bobcats in every quarter on Sunday to coast to a 109-77 win. Kemba Walker scored 20 points on 7-of-21 shooting for Charlotte, which shot 33.8 percent for the game.

The last meeting: In the teams' first game after the All-Star Break, Charlotte came up with an easy win. The Bobcats, one of the league's worst offensive teams, lit up the host Magic for 37 first-quarter points en route to a 105-92 win. Walker and Gerald Henderson scored 24 points apiece, while Byron Mullens had 20 points and 12 boards. Six Magic players scored in double-figures, but Orlando simply couldn't defend Charlotte.
