Orlando Magic at Portland Trailblazers Game Thread

The Magic will try to end their road trip on a high note as they travel to face the Blazers

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Truth be told, the Orlando Magic's four-game road trip has more or less gone as expected. They netted fairly easy win in Phoenix, followed by losses versus the Nuggets on a back-to-back and the Warriors. Even the Magic themselves knew it would be tough, and chose not to take any chances with Elfrid Payton's health versus the Nuggets.

This game is the wildcard, and it may serve as a barometer of the Magic's progress. Will the Magic be able to outgun Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum? Can they put together a solid defensive performance after two straight games without any defense? Can their miraculous run of shooting continue, or will it falter at the end of this tough road trip?

The game starts at 10PM Eastern (8 PM Mountain). You can catch it on Fox Sports Florida, NBA League Pass, or on the radio at ESPN AM 580.
