The Orlando Magic make a quick trip home to Amway Center on Friday to take on the Milwaukee Bucks.

Tipoff between Orlando and Milwaukee is set for 7:00 PM Eastern. Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM will offer live coverage in the Orlando market.

Orlando's last time out: Evan Fournier scored 28 points on 8-of-14 shooting as the Magic edged the New York Knicks on Wednesday, 97-95, to end a two-game losing streak. Nikola Vucevic added 20 points and 13 rebounds of his own. Orlando trailed the hosts by two points entering the fourth quarter, but rallied for victory. Carmelo Anthony scored 27 for New York.

Milwaukee's last time out: The Bucks picked up their second straight win Tuesday, knocking off the Oklahoma City Thunder by an 85-78 final at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Milwaukee withstood a 29-point effort from Reggie Jackson thanks it large part to its bench: O.J. Mayo scored 19 in 29 minutes off the pine, while four other Bucks reserves tallied between six and 14 points.
