Wrapping up their four-game West Coast trip, the Orlando Magic look to build off their win in Sacramento on Friday night against the Portland Trail Blazers. Having lost three straight going into Friday night, a win against the Kings was important for the Magic if they had any hopes of turning things around quickly. Having shown a good defensive intensity, the team will need to carry that over for Saturday night and beyond if they want to have any remote chance of making the playoffs.
The Magic will likely be without Eflrid Payton and Nikola Vucevic once again, as they battle elbow and groin injuries respectively.
Game time is set for 10:30 PM Eastern at The Moda Center. TV coverage is being provided by Fox Sports Florida, and radio coverage on ESPN580 Orlando.
