The Orlando Magic look to snap their three-game losing streak Friday against the New York Knicks, the NBA's worst team.

Tipoff between Orlando and New York is set for 7:30 PM. Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM will offer live coverage in the Orlando market.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic yielded three double-doubles in Wednesday's defeat to the Detroit Pistons: Brandon Jennings scored 24 points with a career-best 21 assists, while Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe combined for 50 points and 27 rebounds as the Pistons ran roughshod over Orlando's defense en route to a 128-point outing. Orlando scored 118 of its own, with Nikola Vučević's 23 leading the way.

New York's last time out: The Knicks picked up their second straight victory Wednesday by upsetting the Phialdelphia 76ers, 98-91, in the City of Brotherly Love. All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony stuffed the stat sheet with 27 points, 11 boards, four assists, and three steals, willing his club to victory. New York prevailed despite shooting just 40.7 percent from the floor.

The last meeting: Orlando held off the Knicks, 97-95, on November 12th at Madison Square Garden thanks to a career-night from Evan Fournier: the third-year swingman scored 28 points and hit three crucial free throws in the closing seconds to preserve victory for the visitors. Vučević added a 20-point, 13-rebound double-double as Orlando withstood Anthony's 27-point performance.
