The Orlando Magic wrap a quick, two-game Texas roadtrip Wednesday when they visit the Dallas Mavericks.

Tipoff between Orlando and Dallas is set for 8:00 PM Eastern. ESPN, Fox Sports Florida, and ESPN 580 AM will offer live coverage.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic fought hard Tuesday against the Houston Rockets, leading by two points late in the third quarter, only to wilt in the fourth en route to a 107-94 defeat. Victor Oladipo continued his stellar season with 29 points, four rebounds, three assists, and two steals, albeit in a losing effort. Donatas Motiejūnas led Houston with an efficient 23 points, and he drained two of the Rockets' 11 three-pointers.

Dallas' last time out: The Mavs edged the Oklahoma City Thunder, 119-115, on Monday behind a 31-point outing from Chandler Parsons, just one point off his season-high. Rajon Rondo added 11 points and 13 assists. Dallas prevailed despite spotting OKC a 59-37 advantage on the glass.

The last meeting: Six Mavs reached double-digit scoring as Dallas cruised to a 108-93 victory over an Orlando team facing off-the-court tumult: rumors that the team planned to fire Jacque Vaughn had reached a peak, perhaps contributing to their uneven effort. Nik Vučević scored 17 points with 15 rebounds, and Evan Fournier added 15 points of his own.
