The Orlando Magic face the worst team in the league Monday when they visit the Milwaukee Bucks, wrapping the season series between the two rebuilding clubs.

Tipoff between Orlando and Milwaukee is set for 8:00 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM in Orlando. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 6:00 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic put together a strong offensive performance Saturday against the San Antonio Spurs, but fell by a 121-112 final due to their inability to get stops. San Antonio guards Tony Parker and Manu Ginóbili combined for 54 points on 22-of-36 shooting from the field. An aggressive Tobias Harris led the Magic with 23 points off the bench.

Milwaukee's last time out: The Bucks dropped their third straight game Saturday against the Washington Wizards, 114-107, despite a 25-point performance from Brandon Knight. Washington shot 53.8 percent for the game, made 15 three-pointers, and got 28 points from Trevor Ariza as the former Orlando swingman continued his strong 2013/14 campaign.

The last meeting: Milwaukee held off Orlando, 104-100, on February 18th at the BMO Harris Bradley Center as Caron Butler, no longer a Buck, scored 21 points on 7-of-13 three-point shooting off the bench. Arron Afflalo tallied 21 points in defeat as Orlando lost three of the game's four quarters against the Bucks, who owned--and still own--the NBA's worst record.
