Magic at Bulls: Orlando starts a back-to-back on the road

Since beginning their rebuild, the Magic haven't won many games away from Amway Center. They head to the Windy City on Tuesday looking to reverse that trend.

The Orlando Magic seek their first road victory since March 26 on Thursday as they head to the Windy City to take on the Chicago Bulls.

Tipoff between Orlando and Chicago is set for 8:00 PM Eastern. Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM will offer live coverage in the Orlando market.

Orlando's last time out: Despite a balanced offensive performance which saw all five starters score in double-figures, the Magic fell to 0-3 on Saturday against the Toronto Raptors. Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan accounted for 21 of the Raptors' 48 free-throw attempts, nearly matching Orlando's total of 24 by themselves. Nikola Vucevic continued his hot start to the season, contributing 15 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, a steal, and a block in a losing effort.

Chicago's last time out: Jimmy Butler sank a pair of free throws with no time left Saturday to help Chicago hold on against the Minnesota Timberwolves, 106-105. Butler finished with a team-best 24 points, while veteran big man Pau Gasol added 20 with six boards and four blocks.

Last season: The Bulls won the season series, 2-1, but Orlando did manage to take one of the two games at United Center in the first meeting between the teams. In the penultimate game of the regular season, however, Chicago got its revenge, coasting to a 108-95 victory behind a game-high 22 points from Mike Dunleavy, of all people. Kyle O`Quinn led Orlando with 20 points, while Andrew Nicholson scored 19 in 22 minutes off the pine.
