After grinding out a tough double overtime victory against the Miami Heat on Tuesday night, the Orlando Magic travel up to New York to take on the Knicks in the first game of a pre-Christmas back-to-back.
Coming off a blow out loss against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night, the Magic trailed by as many as 10 late in the second quarter against the Heat, but kept their in-state rivals within shouting distance the entire night, rallying to force overtime on a Serge Ibaka floater. The Magic dodged every bullet the Heat could fire at them, securing the win in double overtime.
Evan Fournier suffered a upper shin bruise on Tuesday night, but is expected to play against the new look Knicks.
Game time is set for 7:30 PM Eastern at Madison Square Garden. The game can be seen on FoxSports Florida and heard on ESPN580 Orlando.
