Kicking off a six-game, 12-day road trip, the Orlando Magic travel to Los Angeles for the first of two games there against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night.
Coming off another loss at home, the Magic are in a very familiar spot. Earlier in the season when they went 4-1 on a road trip, the team had lost three straight at home prior to departing, but the road trip brought them closer and made them play unselfish, team first basketball. While players and coaches aren't able to pinpoint exactly why they've been better on the road than at home this season, have an "us against the world" mentality on the road has likely helped spike their play.
Game time is set for 9:30 PM Eastern time at Staples Center. The game can be seen on FoxSports Florida, and heard on ESPN580 Orlando.
