Tipoff between Orlando and L.A. is set for 10:30 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 pulled off a stunning victory Tuesday, leading the Golden State Warriors by nine points in the fourth quater before Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson staged a rally from beyond the arc. Curry's pull-up trey with 2.2 seconds remaining lifted the Warriors to a 98-97 win. Victor Oladipo tallied 27 points, four rebounds, and four assists in his greatest performance of the season. Kyle O`Quinn, making a spot start for Nikola Vucevic, played one of the finer games of his career, posting 21 points and 11 boards.
L.A.'s last time out: The Clippers rocked the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday, 127-101, doubling up the visitors in the middle periods by a 70-34 margin. Newly minted Western Conference Player of the Week Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick scored 23 apiece to lead L.A., while DeAndre Jordan shot 5-of-5 for 11 points, 13 boards, and four blocks.
The last meeting: The Clippers made quick work of the Magic on November 19th, outscoring them in every period en route to a 114-90 win. Vucevic bested Jordan individually, going for 19 points and 14 boards to Jordan's two and 11, but it hardly mattered: the visiting Clips shot 53.6 percent from the floor and a blistering 57.1 percent on three-pointers.
