The Orlando Magic look to remain undefeated with James Borrego as head coach Sunday as they host the Chicago Bulls.

Tipoff between Orlando and Chicago 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 had an impressive start to the post-Jacque Vaughn era Friday as they rallied to take down the Los Angeles Lakers, 103-97, in overtime. The Lakers led by as much as 14 in the game, which Orlando won in large part because of Tobias Harris. The fourth-year forward scored a career-best 34 points, while Nikola Vucevic added 25 points and 13 rebounds of his own.

Chicago's last time out: The Bulls thumped the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday, 107-72, behind terrific efforts from their stars. Pau Gasol dominated with 20 points and 15 rebounds, Derrick Rose scored an efficient 20, and Jimmy Butler added 18 in the rout as the visiting Bulls limited the Pelicans to 37.2 percent shooting.
