Losers of six straight, the Orlando Magic wrap up a stretch of five games in seven nights at home against the Chicago Bulls. After hanging with the Miami Heat through the first half on Friday night, a poor third quarter once again cost the Magic in their pursuit of a needed victory. The loss to the Heat officially eliminated the Magic from playoff contention for the fourth straight year.
The Magic will likely be short handed once again, with Nikola Vucevic, Victor Oladipo and Ersan Ilyasova all battling injuries.
Game time is set for 7:00 PM Eastern at Amway Center. TV coverage is being provided by Fox Sports Florida, and radio coverage on ESPN580 Orlando.
