Tipoff between Orlando and New York is set for 7:30 PM Eastern. Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM will offer live coverage in the Orlando market.
Orlando's last time out: The Magic nearly came up with their second road win of the season Tuesday, only to fall short against the Toronto Raptors by a 104-100 final. Toronto used an 11-0 scoring run in the fourth quarter to tie the game, and Orlando never really recovered. Evan Fournier scored a game-best 24 points in defeat, while Tobias Harris contributed 23 points, 13 rebounds, and five assists.
New York's last time out: The Knicks fell at home against the Atlanta Hawks, 91-85, on Monday despite Carmelo Anthony's near triple-double: the seven-time All-Star notched 25 points, nine rebounds, and seven assists, but received precious little help from his teammates as the Knicks dropped to 2-6 on the young season. Atlanta rocked New York on the foul line, 27-7, in the game.
Last season: The Knicks took two of three from Orlando, including the lone contest at Madison Square Garden, but the Magic won the final meeting in double-overtime. Victor Oladipo popped off for 30 points, nine rebounds, and 14 assists in leading Orlando back from the brink of defeat. Anthony, for his part, finished with 44 points and 11 rebounds.
