The Orlando Magic conclude a three-game homestand Sunday as they take on the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Tipoff between Orlando and Oklahoma City is set for 6:00 PM. Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM will offer live coverage in the Orlando market.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic put up a solid fight Friday against the Memphis Grizzlies, one of the league's best teams, but Memphis imposed its will over the coures of the final three periods en route to a 106-96 win. Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph each tallied double-doubles for the Grizz. In defeat, rookie point guard Elfrid Payton put together his finest performance at the NBA level, setting career-bests with 22 points and 12 assists to go with four boards and two steals.

Oklahoma City's last time out: The Thunder stunned the West-leading Golden State Warriors on Friday, 127-115, behind a 36-point outing from Kevin Durant, the league's reigning MVP. Durant shot a sizzling 14-of-18 from the floor, but he had plenty of help: newly acquired reserve guard Dion Waiters added an efficient 21 points, and Serge Ibaka poured in 27 with eight rebounds. Russell Westbrook shot poorly from the floor, but nonetheless tallied a 17-point, 15-rebound, 17-assist triple-double.

Last season: Orlando split the two-game season series with the title-contending Thunder as each team prevailed on its home floor. The Magic picked up their win on February 7th when Tobias Harris dunked on a breakaway as time expired, lifting Orlando to an emotional victory, 103-102. The play capped a team-leading, 18-point effort for Harris. Durant scored 29 with 12 assists.
