The Orlando Magic host the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday hoping to build more momentum after winning three of their last four games.

Tipoff between Orlando and Los Angeles 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: The Magic's combination of three-point shooting and ball movement proved too much for the Detroit Pistons to handle on Monday night as Orlando rolled to a 107-93 victory on the road. Evan Fournier, Tobias Harris, and Channing Frye combined for 10 of Orlando's 13 treys, and each of the Magic's starters tallied at least three assists in the solid win.

Los Angeles' last time out: The Chicago Bulls waxed the Clippers in L.A., 105-89, on Monday, giving the Clippers their second loss in their last three games despite Jamal Crawford's 24 points off the bench. The Bulls drained 10 threes and shot 48.8 percent from the floor overall. The folks at Clips Nation are already trying to figure out what's wrong with their team.

Last season: Orlando and L.A. split the two-game series as each team prevailed on its home floor. On January 6th, the Magic edged the Clippers by a 98-90 final as Nik Vučević popped off for 30 points and 21 rebounds, lighting up DeAndre Jordan. Orlando held a 15-point lead at halftime, but the Clippers' dominant third quarter gave them the advantage going into the final frame. Orlando responded for an impressive victory.
