The Orlando Magic head home to Amway Center on Sunday to conclude a back-to-back set as well as their season series against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Tipoff between Orlando and Philly is set for 6:00 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM in Orlando. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 4:00 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic fell to the Miami Heat on Saturday, 112-98, as Miami completed the four-game sweep of its in-state rivals for the second consecutive season. Dwyane Wade scored 24 points to lead all players, but Orlando got great production from centers Nik Vučević and Kyle O'Quinn: the pair of youngsters combined for 32 points and 25 rebounds in defeat.

Philadelphia's last time out: The 76ers dropped their 13th straight game Saturday against the Washington Wizards, 122-103, yielding a career-high 40 points to veteran swingman Trevor Ariza in the process. Tony Wroten scored an efficient 19 points off the bench to lead Philly, which honored Allen Iverson by retiring his jersey at halftime.
