After trouncing the San Antonio Spurs at home on Friday night, their second impressive victory on the early season, the Orlando Magic look to carry their momentum on the road in Charlotte against the Hornets.
After dominating the Cleveland Cavaliers last weekend, the Magic put it together again against another one of the leagues best on Friday night. Now, sitting atop the Eastern Conference standings, the Magic look to continue to build their impressive early season resume against the division foe Hornets.
It will be the Magic's first look at the Hornets since the addition of Dwight Howard in the offseason. The game will also give the Magic a good test against a team with a true rim protector, something they haven't faced since their opening night victory against the Miami Heat.
Game time is set for 6:00 PM Eastern. The game can be seen on Fox Sports Florida, and heard on ESPN580 Orlando.
The Magic will once again be without Elfrid Payton, who continues to recover from a hamstring injury.
