After a close loss to the Golden State Warriors on Monday night, the Orlando Magic continue their four-game West Coast road trip in Los Angeles against the Lakers. Having the Warriors lead down to two late, the Magic were poised to have the chance for one of the bigger upsets of the season, but were ultimately knocked off by the Warriors, who seemingly always come up with the right play when they need to in close games. Tuesday night against the Lakers is seemingly a must-win for the Magic if they want to keep pace in the Eastern Conference playoff race.
This will be the final time the Magic face Kobe Bryant, should he suit up.
Game time is set for 10:30 PM Eastern at Staples Center. TV coverage is being provided by Fox Sports Florida, and radio coverage on ESPN580 Orlando.
