The Orlando Magic start a two-game roadtrip Saturday against the San Antonio Spurs.

Tipoff between Orlando and San Antonio is set for 8:30 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM in Orlando. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 6:30 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: Orlando's home record dipped below .500 Wednesday after their 101-89 loss to the Houston Rockets. The Magic surrendered 31 points to James Harden and a 19-point, 14-rebound double-double to Dwight Howard word. Arron Afflalo returned from a five-game absence to lead Orlando with 18 points of his own.

San Antonio's last time out: In a rematch of the 2013 NBA Finals, the Spurs dealt the Miami Heat their worst loss of the season Thursday, 111-87. San Antonio shot 50.6 percent from the floor and four Spurs tallied double-digit points, with the ageless Tim Duncan's 23 leading the way.
